Re: The Rookie (ABC) -- Season 5 -- Premieres 9/25/22

I am going to cancel Hulu soon, so I won't be watching this week-to-week anymore, but I did see the new episode.

I thought the golden ticket thing was really stupid, even if it is a real thing that happens.
(1) They think it makes Nolan look like this noble guy, but does anybody not think that him not using it to get a safer and higher paid position just makes him look like a complete dumbass?
(2) A few weeks ago, the LAPD was so down on Nolan that they were going to block him from TRYING to get promoted to training officer, and now they want to give him any job he wants!?

They should have just had the reward for his valor just be the training officer promotion that people knew he wanted. It puts the show back on track with his career without pushing the narrative into fairy tale land.

I mean, he could have just picked ANYTHING? Is that what Iím understanding? That canít be real at all. At best, they should have done exactly what you said to make it more believable.

Yes, he could have moved to a position in any department, and the LAPD would have provided any necessary training. According to the showrunner Akexi Hawley, it is a real thing.

I assume watching live as it airs is not an option for you?

Well, you can still watch new episodes for free, but you'll have to suck it up and watch it through the ABC website or app and there will be ad breaks. Around 5 or 6 breaks for a 1 hour show.

I'll sign up again for Hulu in a few months and binge everything, then cancel again. Gonna do the same with Disney +.

I’m surprised they brought back Rosalind (I didn’t read the synopsis before watching the episode) to be a big bad for another season. Thorson’s comic relief at the casino was fun but I hope he gets more actual plot engagement.

Yeah, that would actually be kind of insulting I think to his fellow officers--a completely wasted opportunity.

The 'undercover' scenes with Tim and Lucy are so ridiculous and contrived. Nobody would believe that they're hardened criminals. And that whole plot just ends abruptly. It felt like it should have been played out longer and had a bigger payoff and then it's just--"oh, the bad guys made us so now we arrest them all." This show does that often--lays the foundation for what could be an interesting long story arc and then just wraps it up way too early and moves on.

We all knew she was going to come out of the water, just not how over the top it would be.

Lots happening in that episode. I liked the dirty cops storyline the most.

This was absolutely one of the most awesome episodes of the show. We started watching season one because of Fillion and absolutely love all the other characters.

It’s amazing how bad TV writers have gotten over the years. Either that or they’re just embracing the crazy and throwing realism out the window. That pool scene was right out of a spoof movie like Hot Shots.

All the scenes with the pregnant cop doing policework and getting into a life-or-death fight while in active labor were typical nonsense for this show.

Feds cameo last night and next week is a full on cross over. ABC is pushing these shows hard.

also - now itís barely about cops and now detectives and lawyers. Just spin this stuff out.

Damn, I saw the Britt Robertson credit then forgot when I saw the pretty blonde later. I’ve only seen one episode of Feds, though.

I thought it was an interesting episode with Nolan’s new rookie. Thought for a second she might get offed but figured that’d be too dark. He’d probably quit the force if that happened.

Re: The Rookie (ABC) -- Season 5 -- Premieres 9/25/22

I watched this last one. Glad to see the Rosalyn thing wrapped up for good.

Here's what I'm wondering: Will Bailey find out that Nolan was not willing to kill Rosalyn to save her life? Will Nolan tell her because he's just honest that way? Or will she find out another way, like someone sends her the video? Would she stay with Nolan after learning the truth?

I laughed at the beginning title card telling us this was a two part crossover with Feds. And yet this wrapped up pretty cleanly. Nope ABC, I still wonít be watching Feds. Nice try though.

There was even a lame line at the end something like ďoh here come the Feds to help.Ē

How could Rosalyn be sure Bailey would be the person who fell into her trap? Even though she was watching the responders via cameras, anyone could have walked into that room and fallen into the trap, and if someone else had fallen in it wouldn't have had the same impact as Bailey falling in. I guess you could say she lured her with cries of help, but anyone could have heard them.

Yeah, I saw that crossover note but was too lazy to google it, and the beginning didnít seem like a continuation so I kept watching, then the ending seemed complete as well. Apparently the story continues in the Feds episode tonight, and I wouldnít mind watching it, but Iíve only seen one episode, and Iím sure I wonít miss it if I never do.

I want to give props to them for doing the crossover this way. If you only are going to watch The Rookie, or are watching the series in the future, you get a conclusion to the Rosalyn story.

Watching SVU on Hulu, I ran into several episodes with incomplete stories because they finished up on another series.

Man, they keep making both of these shows collide every single week.

I get it, promote your new series, but damn.

Just for the heck of it, I watched the second half on Rookie Feds.
  1. Is it the Niecy Nash show or the Britt Robertson show? Because it seemed like a lot of Britt.
  2. Niecy! Button up your fucking shirt!. Pretty sure the FBI still has a dress code about showing so much cleavage.
  3. I know it is just a few episodes in, but shut the fuck up about being a guidance counselor!

I watched it too. I thought about watching episodes 2-3 first, but decided to just skip to #4. It was fine and did finish the story, but it was really unnecessary to the Rookie storyline. Cameo by Tim to pass the baton.

It definitely feels more Britt, and thatís fine with me, as Nash was so annoying in the backdoor pilot. But Britt is kinda annoying too.

It was even more annoying during the DVD era.
