Not Thier Strongest Offering
7 November 2018 | by GunnersMateSee all my reviews

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly was entertaining enough, but not the strongest offering from The Rookie. The strength being that the characters are largely solid and engrossing. The interactions between Nolan and Bishop continue to be fabulous; a wonderful pair of very real adults in very different stages of their careers with who provide us with interesting, complex, and often very funny conversations. Surprisingly enough, the Training Officer to Rookie relationship between Bradford and Chen was greatly improved this week as we learn more about Bradford's personal motivations and watch Chen start to stand up and stand strong as a uniformed officer. The weakest part of the episode was the scattershot police work selection that made up the framework for the installment. With one notable exception, it was simply not engaging or all that interesting - and it was more than a challenge to the need for willing suspension of disbelief (too much major engagement for the rookie crew). The episode could have been better, but it was very much worth watching.
