Mercury Retrograde, the second episode of Rookie Blue sees our heroine Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym) paired with walking cliche Detective Sam Swarek - the rugged rogue - as they tie up loose ends from Swarek's months as an undercover officer (remember McNally mistakenly blew his cover in the pilot?) The loose end turns out to be one Emily Starling, an informant with valuable information who is wanted by the local crime lord Anton (probably not a good thing). As McNally learns to work with and around Swarek's unethical methods, her fellow rookies hunt down an escaped convict, deal with drunken informants and engage in romantic affairs all under the scrutiny of their law enforcement elders.
If Grey's Anatomy and Law and Order had a baby and dropped the baby on its head then sealed the wound in the baby's head with honey, that baby would be called Rookie Blue. It is wholly enjoyable to watch without engaging too many brain cells or offending your intelligence. The angst that clogs Grey's Anatomy is mostly flushed and replaced with fresh humor and enthusiasm.
