Trivia

The term "Boot" is slanted for a police Rookie because they are fresh out of a Police Academy which is similar to a military "boot camp". While people will argue that the police are different from the military, when you look at how police departments are structured and operate you will notice how alike they are with the difference being the military protects the country and the police protect communities and in those rare instances should a situation become too volatile or too much for the police too handle, they call in the military as back-up.

Wasn't sure about this, but it works
17 October 2018 | by wroshonSee all my reviews

My wife and I just finished watching the first episode and were impressed. Went from "let's see" beforehand, to "we're recording the series" after. The series hits the ground running. Rare for a cast to gel like this in a pilot. If the producers and writers can keep it up, we've got something to look forward to on Tuesday nights.
