Just watched the Rookie Season 5 Episode 18. It was sad, disappointing and downright dumb. The whole plot was unbelievable and kind of ridiculous.
0 0 Ian Lumgair crown  February 20, 2023
this show started of as a very good very strong procedure show with interesting character development. Now this one precinct is at war with a major drug cartel. Yeah just stupid. The LAPD has about 10 billion great story lines they could pull from this is the best you can do? Get back to procedure. Correct gear, wearing vests, all the time. EXT EXT. Pull some story arcs right from the department. This can still be a great show.
0 1 Shirley  January 11, 2023
I love [love] this show. It blends ❤ cultures and characters with differing opinions in a way that lends to healthy conversations. It has action, romance, family, and friendship in a way I've ❤ only seen in Bluebloods so far.
0 1 hey123 hey123  January 1, 2023
Love this show will be gutted if it's not renewed as watch all season in a week
0 1 Jenny Hemsley  November 2, 2022
I love The Rookie! I have to say I tried to watch The Feds Rookie and just can't. So I really hope that if that show doesn't make it won't effect the OG - The Rookie.
0 7 Sas  March 26, 2022
Please bring the Rookie back. As a family we watch the program and enjoy so PLEASE PLEASE BRING IT BACK FOR A 5 SEASON
0 3 Ksweet  March 23, 2022
We ?LOVE? The Rookie! Please put us out of our misery and RENEW for Season 5! It's even difficult when there's just a pause in the show and we have to wait weeks for the next episode (like now)... PLEASE RENEW!
0 3 Jocelyn Calma Aniag  March 9, 2022
I love so much the show. Please dont be dissapoint to continue to the next season The Rookie.
1 4 Lilyrose2  February 15, 2022
This show is amazing I hope they do another season it’s a good season one of the best I’ve ever watched x
0 9 Dan F.  February 1, 2022
Love this show. It is a good mix of humor while covering the issues that are current. Actors do a great job. Hope that this series continues indefinitely.
0 9 RH1  October 13, 2021
I love the show. To not bring it back for season 5 would be disappointing. My favorite scenes include Bradford giving Chim a hard time. Was thinking that was over with until the end of the latest episode.
0 1 FredFan  September 27, 2021
Season 4, Episode 1 - IF the thought of Jackson gone can be forgotten, then the saving of Lopez and husband sequences are great, but the loss of Jackson could not be forgotten.
Why wasn't there a funeral for Jackson?
Where are Jackson's parents?
Why was there a tombstone for Jackson when there was no time to NO time to grieve.
Why jump 3 months?
Why isn't Luna at the homecoming of Lopez and baby?
0 3 Anthony T Harrison FredFan  November 13, 2021
He did have a tombstone at the end of the episode when Lopez was at the grave site with the baby
0 11 Norma Hawk  July 13, 2021
I love The Rookie. It is the only show I watch on regular TV. I love the actors and actresses and love the relationship they have with each other. I patiently wait for each episode. I hope it will be renewed. Please, Please.
0 8 Dcan  June 4, 2021
Love the show , acting is top notch , even my Dogs are fans , which reminds me : the cliffhanger upset a dog ,who is in inconsolable , (secretly in love with Lopez) , I am going to ban them from watching T.V.
Thank you and keep the show strong
3 3 Gennifer  May 17, 2021
Great characters and actors, but I was disappointed at the end of the finale. Poor choice. Why not just give us a happy ending to hold us until 2022? I'm supposed to feel suspense until then? I don't think so. I'd like to see more real policing. Remember Southland, anyone?
0 9 Jyasick12  May 15, 2021
I love the show it is great season I hope there is more seasons
0 11 Best show on tv.  May 5, 2021
Best show on TV. Needs to be renewed.
1 7 Heix Best show on tv.  May 7, 2021
Hi... totally agree... not a big TV fan but won't miss a chapter... Great Show...
0 11 Best show on tv.  May 5, 2021
The rookie is the best show on TV I don’t take my eyes off for a minute or even pause during the whole show. Think twice before canceling you would be making a terrible mistake.
The rookie has everything you can ask for good acting good cast great storylines please don’t cancel the show.
7 6 Cats  April 28, 2021
Season 1&2 were excellent. Season 3 just threw away all that great work and character development for a season long cringeworthy leftist woke lecture. Not surprised if it is not renewed for a fourth season.
2 4 dogs Cats  May 10, 2021
Well, following the situation in the states, they needed to go this way (play it save), or they would be butchered. I agree the forced racial statements feel really forced and on the nose, but I still enjoyed the characters....
2 7 Francine V  April 25, 2021
The Rookie is a incredible TV series that combines action, drama, comedy and romance in one amazing cast! These is the best show on TV! Great writing! Love the relationships between all the different characters! This is a must see, must renew!
0 17 Debbie Schnackenbeck  July 6, 2019
I love watching Nathan Fillian in any series, even "The Rookie" he did a very good job, in "Castle."
and "Firefly." Plus the movies he was in..
2 1 Lissa Reinhardt Debbie Schnackenbeck  December 10, 2019
There is an old Outer Limits (latest series, though) episode that you should try to catch, Starcrossed. He is so young! It was even before Two Guys and a Girl.
1 23 Robbie Sammons  May 14, 2019
I love the The Rookie and it is Awesome show!! I am so happy it is renewed!! Yay!! I watched Nathan Fallon in Castle, he was awesome in it!! I definitely want The Rookie keep being shown for future seasons!! Give it a chance!! We r the ones that watch these shows, the viewers!! Yay it is renewed!!
12 6 MD50  May 8, 2019
Good show, but not great....there are so many inaccuracies from a real-world perspective as it relates to the job though. These Rookies experienced more in a season on the job than some real world officers do in a 30 year career of policing, so while the premise is sound and it's entertaining TV, it's just that.....entertaining. Don't watch expecting things to reflect reality.
1 1 RH MD50  October 13, 2021
Love the show too. Yes, it pertains very little to policing but let's be honest high stakes calls are rare in real life, thank God, but would not want to watch a show about a cop writing 5 tickets a day and given millions of verbal warnings lol.
3 15 sharon whitmore  May 7, 2019
We love this show! One of the few my husband and I agree on. I hate that it’s in jeopardy.
1 13 C Carpenter  May 1, 2019
I watched the First Season of the Rookie personally and then my wife who wasn't interested seemed to catch onto the show, story lines and plot along. It became must see TV on Tuesday in our home and if we couldn't it was recorded and watched immediately. It is really a good show and there is lots of plot from a street cop mentality not like Chicago PD which I also watch ..... I agree with the person above Nathan Fillion is great and plays the part/age well on this show. The supporting cast of 2 other rookies and there T.O. is just a great blend and interesting characters and isn't boring either well done, shoot with body camera angles and believable scripts/situations I believe it is must see TV and does remind me of T.J. Hooker in some respects and I hope it has a run like T.J. did .... I wonder if William Shatner watches it ???????
