The Rookie

The Rookie

Start with a clean sheet is always difficult, especially for a native of a small town John Nolan, who after the incident that changed his life, decided to implement life long dream and join the police of Los Angeles. The age of the newcomer greeted with understandable skepticism, but experience, perseverance and sense of humor give John the advantage.

To watch the series became solely for the actor of the main character Nathan.

He is very charismatic, knows how to serious mien flog such humor that other than this, but it also assumed a sad expression from from which take all the strain that is experiencing the hero of the film. This is especially clearly visible in contrast with his usual role of smiley.

I was expecting to see the humour and these rare scenes of sadness/sorrow.

But the show "the Rookie" ("Beginner" I think not much correct translation) with the first series showed the actor Fillion only with the perspective of being sad, aging man.

And he is the series, I'm sure if you dig in financial reports, somewhere will be present in as the money invested by the police Department or connected with him structure.

The series — propaganda. Here are trying to show that COP — more than people. As far as he hard as they all good. With the first series is driven into the heads of the audience that the American police — perfect it are bound to obey.

Also in the season is just an incredible number of LGBT representatives, in some of the series is simply exceeds all possible limits when a contract is found everywhere couples-gay, and become police officers or witnesses for weddings or your heart... detained them. In a row.

I would venture to suggest that the series is filmed exclusively for the American audience as them there is a very serious claim to the work of the police, who often shoot when it wasn't necessarily... maybe it's justified, but people are not like that they can shoot for incorrect interpretation of proper motions.

Here at murder suspect lead conditions when a suspect with a weapon causing the viewer a strong hatred and the thought "just do it, you have", then added children passers-by that would enhance the effect of the risk of the perpetrator with weapons, and then, of course, the offender is defiantly the plot in COP only then gets shot... all sigh of relief, and then begins the circus show what should pass the COP, then, that it is released under the questioning the whole plot and everything.

Everything is done with the objective to show that they say "Hey, that dude have died it is easy, but the COP even live with it how it is."

The Russian audience of these can be immediately clear, but humor the series is also there, and Nathan turned into a sad old man.

What a pity that his charisma not a worthy project.

A "newbie" (as well known as "the Rookie") — American TV series about the heavy routine of the regular staff of the police station somewhere in the wilds of Los Angeles. The premiere was accompanied by an aggressive advertising campaign, focusing in which was on what is "the story of 40-year-old man who decides to radically change the life and enter service in police." Let age you don't bother. In some American States do not age limits for those wishing to become police officers. On the moment, the oldest rookie in the ranks of American police 56 years.

However, after watching a couple of episodes it becomes obvious that the usual "procedural" series. The age of the main character very quickly cease to play at least some role in what is happening. We offer a very standard drama about police work. In this has its advantages. "Rookie" can be seen as the antithesis of the glamorous tales like "Hawaii 5-0" or"Lethal weapon". In"the Recruit" we see a dull gray reality: tons of reports, the imperfection of the bureaucratic machine, the dirt streets and the injustice of life. The film's tagline could be the phrase of one of characters: "We do not free not have to save all so just follow the instructions".

On the other hand, the authors of the series themselves in its a trap. Deciding to make the most realistic movie, they were in the plot stalled. Of the series a series of characters encounter one same offences are in the same same situations. Must be very fond of "production" films or to burn with an incredible desire to know all the nuances behind the scenes work of the American police to force myself to watch this series.

In order to stir up the action, the authors, of course, trying to invent something, but not too much, in order not will turn into those glamorous tales, they don't want to be like.

The situation was partly saved in the extent of colorful characters, but here the series is not possess originality. As they say, stamps visit us. The rookie gets the curator, who turns out to be a despot and wants to maximally humiliate his subordinate. From the curator is terrible (very operatic) confidentiality: all life fighting against crime the street, he didn't notice that happening in your own family.

"The rookie" is based soundly, the budget was decent, scenery large-scale field shooting not saved. If you really are tired of stories superheroes, fighting against a new and thus violating all existing laws and rules, "the Rookie" will become for you an outlet and a pleasant surprise.

But for a long view of the series is not fit. The audience can quickly get bored.

Bank. The robbers. Gun temple. A new life. Here and began a new Chapter in the life of John Nolan, of forty men, which have lost in the past your business and a wife, but decided to fulfill the dream and become a police officer.

The series plays on the senses. The showrunners decided not to show superheroes in police costumes, and remove the show on police officers for people to know that is with them every day. When I heard about this series, and that it will star Nathan Fillion, I thought "Oh no, again a series about the detectives." But after watching the pilot, I realized this is the same type of clichéd story. I'm glad to make a mistake.

When you have finished watching the series today, I understand, the show is not is replete with special effects, a stupid heroism. Everything here is on the spot: Comedy, drama, mystery, Thriller. Thank you to the Directors for the lovely frames infamous Los Angeles for realism, but the showrunners for a perfect scenario where a place for the relationship inside the police station and outside it. Conflict, sex, love, affection, friendship — to the series. But like was good show, there's a fly in the ointment. And is Nathan Fillion. The whole episode I thought that I see a continuation of the castle, who moved to the city of angels, and decided to write a novel about a simple police, and not detectives. To him first make biased decisions, but with charisma, humor, persistence and life experience of seeking respect. Castle's first season = first season of the Recruit with adjusted for more realism.

John Nolan (Nathan Fillion) — forty-year-old recruit to the police station in Los Angeles.

Waist Bishop (Afton Williamson) — mentor Nolan, which seek to career wants to take the place of the detective.

Tim Bradford (Eric winter) — the coach, Lucy Chen. Have he has an ex-wife, Isabel, a former employee of the police under the cover is a drug addict

Lucy Chen (Melissa O'neil) — the rookie under the beginning of Tim Bradford. The ex-girlfriend of Nolan.

Angela Lopez (Alyssa Diaz) — officer training, coach Jackson West.

Jackson West (Titus makin) — rookie the son of the commander of the internal Affairs Department of police of Los Angeles. Best friend Nolan and Lucy Chan.

Wade gray (Richard T. Jones) — the commander of the police Department of Los Angeles. Openly anti-Nolan, believing that he had a midlife crisis, and he should leave police.

Zoe Anderson (Mercedes Mason) — police captain and a former marine military police.

A good series, if you want to see the real story about people in the framework of the series. You will receive a dose of fun to view it, but the finish can leave for everyone. But without seeing the series, you many do not lose.
