3 newbies, Jackson, Nolan and Chen
With their respective Training Officers
How they navigate their lives as police officers, their lives as individuals and how they connect with each and every single life they come in contact with
That is what The Rookie, from the County of Los Angeles is all about, basically!
I must admit it took me a while
Hesitating all the way
About watching the show’s debut
Till I saw a very familiar face….Officer Nolan!
Remember him from Castle?
And of course, there are other faces that are quite familiar….like Officer Chen
Remember her from Condor, iZombie and Dark Matter?
What about Watch Commander Grey?
He has been everywhere literally, hasn’t he?
Same goes for Officer Bradford! Dude, he has seen it all.
Are you familiar with Officer Lopez?
I am…from one of my favourite shows, Zoo!!!
It’s been a while from the days at SWAT and Fear The Walking Dead, respectively!
Alright alright…enough of that!
Thinking about becoming a police officer is a hard paper for so many people
Nolan says it is a way of “re-inventing himself” after having lost everything
Chen says her parents were totally against her idea of joining the force
Jackson….well, he says that policing runs in the family and has always looked up to it. Is he ready, though? I don’t know.
Then, there is separating yourself….that is, your life from that of you being a law-enforcement officer
Life comes in very unpredictable ways at us
We fall in love with people we least expected to…the law “doesn’t even allow us to fall in love and enjoy it naturally”
Family and friends get trapped in messes only us can clean up without attracting attention from the crowds but also because we know our way around the system
Families are broken down every single day and turn…all in the name of getting the job done right!
We make friends….in the most messed up ways. Doesn’t everyone wish they met a Nolan earlier on in their lives, maybe?
He always says what is on his mind…right or wrong….also, he won’t leave you to be alone in your worst moments. Also, every single chance he gets, he makes me laugh so much!
~ What are you still doing here, “Boot”? This show isn’t going to watch itself!~
