      Season 5 – The Rookie

      2022 Crime Drama List
      Reviews 82% 50+ 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.

      Previous Josh G There is some exceptional episode focusing on previous heroes and villains, but the damn writing is at all time low and freaking doubles are not fun or cleaver just stupid. We're becoming Gilligan island and Brady bunch this is the point where you cancel the show. There's a late episode of Hawaii five-o where everyone has double the worst TV trope in history, learn from your past and never have doppelgangers. This show could be so much better but they keep trying to bring it's to it's knees. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/03/24 Full Review Telecom Reporter G Season 5 is phenomenal. We were thrilled to witness Chan and Tim's character development take a more serious turn. The last episode of the season is particularly promising, leaving us eagerly anticipating what will unfold in Season 6. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/29/23 Full Review Kelsey J I absolutely love this season!!!!! The show is just my favorite show all together!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/15/23 Full Review Star H Love the stories. Gotta give them a five star because of Chenford! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/03/23 Full Review Arfeen M It would be very entertaining giving the lead to men, instead of making the show all about girl bosses. Policemen doing police business would be excellent to watch Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 09/15/23 Full Review Joe K I've watched every season. I'm not a "cop show" fan per say, but this show is great. You want to find a character to hate, but it's hard. There's some laughs, drama, action. It's one of the best shows on TV right now.
