Please don't blame Nathan Fillion...

... for the scripts! I agree, he is made out to be rather too heroic for a learner, whilst kind of detached and rather too sentimental, and even for an older guy, gets over extreme trauma ridiculously quickly. There appears to be no de-briefing after shocking experiences. (I do hope the real LAPD is more aware). I mean, would a rookie warrant only a chat with the captain after their first killing, and that, to see if they've been culpable? Really? But, hey, Nathan F. is acting it as it's written, and the scripts are the issue. It's always difficult to know quite how to take a "comedy drama", rolling as it does, from pathos to bathos. This is entertainment, but I feel the pressure exerted on rookies would not be so extreme. I find the episodes a bit uneven, but then, so was e.g. Star Trek, every incarnation of it. I think it's inevitable in multi-character fictional plot development over months.
