Storyline

Drama following six diverse NYPD rookies as they patrol the gritty streets of upper Manhattan. The new trainees include Jennifer "White House" Perry, a former college volleyball star and Marine MP in Iraq with a take-charge attitude; Ray "Lazarus" Harper, the oldest rookie and a former police news reporter with better sources than most seasoned cops; Tonya Sanchez, who comes from a family with a criminal history; Ahmad Kahn, an Afghani native who fought his way to freedom; Kenny McClaren, a fourth-generation police officer with great instincts but qualms about joining the force; and Jayson "Jackpot" Toney, a young basketball legend who squandered his opportunity in the NBA. Their demanding Field Training Officer, Daniel "Yoda" Dean, is a case-hardened, unsentimental veteran of the force who emphasizes basics and holds each cop accountable for their actions. Rounding out the team is Sergeant Terry Howard, a no-nonsense plainclothes officer from the Gang Intel Unit, who trains the ... Written by CBS

Knockoff of Rookie Blue
22 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At first watch, NYC 22 is knockoff of ABC's Rookie Blue. Perhaps Blue set the bar too high for this type of crime/drama/police show. Instead of finding 22 complementary to Rookie Blue, I found it inferior and difficult to watch without making comparisons.

Both cop shows with rookie officers, the plot line of the first NYC 22 episode was interesting, but again, I kept seeing where they'd spun off of or would do something very similar in Rookie Blue. Maybe because the shows are on a different network, but it's going to be difficult to make these two shows work in tandem like the CSI's. Unless you just really love rookie cop shows, go with Rookie Blue and don't waste your time with NYC 22.

While 22's cast is more established ((total aside, watching Lazarus (Adam Goldburg, sp?), I kept thinking, that's Joey's weird roommate!)) overall, Rookie Blue has a less well known but more cohesive and enjoyable cast.
