Trivia

In Police Tactical circles, the methodology to clearing a house or room, breaks down as follows: The main entrance is designated number 1. The other sides of the house are label 2,3, 4, etc. in a clockwise manner. The corners where the sides meet are indicated by designated numbers joined by a forward slash in the middle ex: 1/2, 2/3, 3/4 etc. See more »

Goofs

The show revolves around a rookie officer assigned to a patrol Division. LAPD Division patrol vehicles do not have front push bumpers, only Traffic Division vehicles have them.

Also, in some episodes, some officers wear a rank chevron with two rockers with a diamond. This designates a Detective 1 rank. See more »

Took a nosedive this season
18 January 2021 | by noparolefromrocknrollSee all my reviews

I have genuinely enjoyed this show and would rate the first two seasons at a solid 8. The plot and characters have been interesting and enjoyable overall.

Season three, only a few episodes in, is a huge disappointment. Does every tv show and movie have to bend the knee to the so-called 'woke' agenda and relentlessly bombard its audience with political messaging? I can watch CNN for that.

Come on, Hollywood, I want to be entertained, not indoctrinated. I'm sure you can come up with a more original storyline for this season.

For this year, at least, I'm out.
