    Ok. I confused her character on a different show on a different network. Don't expect accuracy.

    Saw a headline that said the show was on the bubble for renewal. Hope the show runners keep that in mind for the rest of the season.

    From the preview for next week:
    It looks like they'll pair up Lucy and Jackson... which makes sense since presumably Tim will have a new boot, at least soon.

    "Or maybe Nolan will become a training officer and each season will be him training a new rookie"
    That would make for an interesting story line.

    Sure, they would cancel this good show but keep something stupid like The masked singer!

    Don't know but I guess ratings are down this season. Need to get the writing back up to bring in the audience.

    Has nothing to do with, if show is good or not. Two key factors on renewal is the cost to produce it and ratings. Simple as that. Higher ups don't care if the show is great or not they care about the ratings and production cost. That's why all these versions of Bachelor, any reality, dancing and singing shows last forever its cheap.

    I find this show really entertaining and easy to watch. Just enough humor to offset the occasionally dark storylines. So many interesting and likable characters. I do think that everyone underestimates Nolan. I think this guy could write his ticket in today's climate. I get that it's fiction, but if more cops were like Nolan (and Jackson for that matter), the country would be in a much better place.

    The reality TV stays, even though it is typically lower rated, because it is cheap to produce. I wonder if part of the reason network TV ratings are so awful because these shows have lower ratings which makes it harder to attract viewers to their new shows. And those lower rated shows add to the problem since they don't have the ability to draw many people to the other shows and it keeps feeding on itself. I think this may be a case where they save so much money they end up going out of business. It does happen to a lot of companies.

    The TV show Rookie Blue never renamed even after all the rookies moved on to not being rookies.

    The hardest companies to fix are those who have had great success in the past. Hard for them to come to grips with the big changes required.

    People will watch anything: that's mesmorizing to content providers. Why is it getting so hard to profit off such a sure thing? You start cutting your costs a little and profits are up! (Or at least stable with dealing sales). You keep cutting and your profits (ratings-based) start to slide, but just a little bit at a time. You thrash about (diversification, vertical integration, voodoo). One day you wake up and you're in the mud. Life is not fair.

    I didn't think much of the professor ride-along episode. A bit too ham-fisted but I did enjoy this week's episode. A nice mix of character development and crime-of-the-week action.

    So why do cops still use hand-held walkie-talkies? Seems like a hands-free solution would be much better?

    A normal episode for this season, a few chuckles along the way.

    Who would have thought that Tim Bradford would end up being a favorite character?

    I'm really going to miss this show if it doesn't get renewed. With only one or two exceptions, each episode strikes just the right balance of drama, comedy, and occasional suspense. Easily one of my favorite shows from any one of the "Big Three" networks in quite a long while.

    (IDK who "Claudia" is, either.)

    Actress Claudia Christian had a very small guest starring role in the episode "Bad Blood," the one with the kidnapped son of a judge. She was one of the waitresses at the diner, I believe.
