Advertisements In some ways it was a fresh take on the cop show. The producers also hired a lot of local cops as advisors, so you're not hearing East Coast terminology like "perp." However there is still some typical cop-show cliches: 1. This kid is supposedly a month out of the academy and yet he's got that "Deer in the Headlights" expression the entire shift. 2. Just because he's a rookie doesn't have to mean he wears his Class A formal uniform while his training officer is in short sleeves. 3. Much of the dialogue would be a sustained complaint in most departments today, especially the LAPD. Overall, not a bad effort.
