Rookie Blue is probably the only show I watch that nobody else watches. Literally, no one...Not only that, I haven’t even met a single person who has heard of it! BUT, that being said, it is also easily one of my favorite shows of all time. It's probably the only good show to come out of Canada, and is also the best ‘summer-show’ by a long shot.
I can admit that it’s not super original. I hate saying this about a show that I’m so fond of, but it’s really just your classic cop show – period. And yet, there’s just something about this show that had me hooked from the very first episode. I’m so incredibly invested in these characters – when things in their lives are at stake, I swear I feel the weight of those stakes in my own life. I root for relationships, cry at failures, and believe in the friendships of these cops and the development of those friendships.
Sentimentality aside, this is honestly just such a good show. And you won’t understand it till you give it a shot. So just watch it. My name’s not Nicole if this doesn’t instantaneously become your favorite summer show! Oh, and...Andy + Sam = everything that is right with this world. OKAY...now I'm done!!
Great cop show. That's it. It's a summer show, it has short stories (every episode) and it has long stories (dramawise and crimewise). It has action, love, drama, mystery and basically everything you want to entertain yourself with for 45 minutes a week..... aaaand it has some of the wittiest lines in TV today. give it a shot.
