      Season 4 – The Rookie

      2021 Crime Drama List
      Reviews 65% 100+ Ratings Audience Score Starting over isn't easy, especially for small-town guy John Nolan, who, after a life-altering incident, is pursuing his dream of becoming an LAPD officer. As the force's oldest rookie, he's met with skepticism from some higher-ups who see him as just a walking midlife crisis. If he can't keep up with the young cops and the criminals, he'll be risking lives -- including his own -- but if he can use his life experience, determination and sense of humor to give him an edge, he may just become successful in this new chapter of his life.

      Josh G Were seeing g the same ideas recycled for the umpteenth time, the specail episode is also a mockumementary and loses it touch second time round. The back door pilot is stupid a fast talking mom cop ughh stop. Know when your creativity bankrupt. The writing has degraded from five ideas and episode, to three, then to one dumb silly stich together poorly written plot. It's no longer fun just hanging on in a coma focused so much on dating drama, crime seems to be a thing of the past. Skip it stop at season 2. ⁸ Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/02/24 Full Review Telecom Reporter G Absolutely enjoyed it; the actors and the storyline remain truly impressive. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/29/23 Full Review streng g Season 4 got rid of the insufferably political message but changed direction from the mildly funny street work of the police to an over-the-top NCIS-like drama Orgy featuring rescue operations of pregnant colleagues in Bolivia out of the hands of a drug lord, Mexican cartels shooting up a police station , Russian Spies, extra-dramatic scenes in the hospital fighting for a donor Heart, political intrigues, etc. etc. You can watch it and it's a huge step forward from season 3, but it still doesn't reach the old heights. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 08/11/23 Full Review Jason Z Getting repetitive init? Still very fun to watch. Nice watching the then rookies climb the ranks of the LAPD. Cinematic have improved very much from last seasons. Still not much extra story you can milk from the same policing every day. We are lazy binge watchers who run on pure dopamine all day so giv good reviews and up to season six. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/13/23 Full Review Connie W Season 1 and 2 were awesome. I loved it. Then season 3 happened and man it was like a different show. Season 4 sucked worse. Bye. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 11/30/22 Full Review the r God this sucks so bad, almost as terrible as Season 5 Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a review
