Trivia

In the United States, an "open carrier" ( also known as a "open microphone", "keyed microphone", or "open radio") is police parlance for a radio that has been inadvertently left on in Talk/Transmit mode. An open carrier stalls and paralyses broadcast traffic, leaving so-called "dead air" to reveal sudden gaps, smudges of hiss, gently swaying drones, beeping alerts, fragmented words, quick phrases, recessed conversations, and other unexpected artifacts. It's like butt-dialing everyone who is listening to the radio. 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 »

Not a bad episode yet
8 November 2019 | by nugebbSee all my reviews

I'm amazed that, even in season 2, there still hasn't been an episode that I would consider below par. Every episode delivers stellar acting, a great story and a believable amount of thrill. I will admit that I tuned in for Nathan Fillion but I've become attached to all the characters and their story lines.
