'Rebel' is an extraordinary take on the seminal police drama that examines the unique and conflicted relationship officers of color have with their jobs - at a time when police forces are rife with brutality and misconduct. Oakland police officer, Rebecca "Rebel" Knight, has always excelled by playing by the rules. She has always known that she must be better and smarter on the job because she is both black and female. After her brother is slain by police, Rebel soon becomes disillusioned with the system and is forced to take matters into her own hands and become a private investigator and a champion for her community. Caught between family loyalty and the fraternity in blue, Rebel's actions set in motion a cause-and-effect crisis that can't be undone. Written by BET

It's an OK show
30 March 2017 | by fletch-09485See all my reviews

Considering that I compare all shows whether they are movies or a TV series against movies such as Avalon, Quigley Down Under, Dances With Wolves or Hamlet, the Mel Gibson version, it's rather hard for a simple TV series to compare. However, imho the three critiques already listed aren't quite fair. The show so far isn't nowhere near the block buster it has been made out to be. It's nothing more than OK, depending on your tastes. Imho the main character isn't quite as tough as she needs to be to portray the character she is supposed to be. She also seems to be a bit inexperienced for the part. As far as her being a bent cop goes, uhmmm, no, not really. Nor is she playing a racist like the other critique claims she is. She is reacting no differently than anyone else would react in a similar situation. To top that off one actor doesn't beat around the bush about playing a white racist. Methinks the person writing the critique is very probably a racist himself. Dunno, don't know him but that's how his critique struck me. Anyway, for me the show was just OK. I won't go out of my way to make sure I don't miss any episodes but if it's on, I might watch it again. I do know if it doesn't improve I definitely won't be watching it again which isn't saying much actually. I get more enjoyment out of watching the news than I do anything on television anymore.
