"NYC-22" is a good cop show about several rookies working together in a police precinct. Most notably, it stars Adam Goldberg and Leelee Sobieski along with Robert John Burke ("Robocop 3," "Thinner") as one rookie's police detective father. Adam Goldberg plays, by far, the most interesting character (older, unemployed, heavy-drinking journalist) and is probably the show's best actor along with Robert John Burke and Terry Kinney, the latter of whom oversees the rookies. The scripts are decent and the city streets look real (i.e. filming doesn't generally APPEAR to have occurred on some studio backlot), but when you compare this to "The Shield," everything seems a little too clean (even the aforementioned city streets). The gang members and the head of undercover gang investigations (played by Felix Solis) especially come across as actors who just donned new, freshly washed outfits and a little gang bling. The creators should have dirtied everyone up a bit. It's not too late. . . . Worth checking out.

I'm enjoying NYC 22, even though I normally don't like cop shows. This one seems more focused on the characters than on find the evidence/solve the crime; I guess that is why I like it. Show follows six rookie cops. The first episode has the rookies making some (well intentioned) mistakes, and Yoda chewing them out afterward. It is a good introduction to the major characters and the typical problems they'll face (gangs, traffic violations, domestic disputes...). The second episode has a more solid storyline, and we are able to see a bit more of the character of the neighborhood.

"NYC 22" is a 2011-2012 mid-season replacement television drama about a group of rookie cops, fresh out of the police academy and other lives, getting their break-in tour in a tough New York City precinct. Unfortunately, the network cancelled it four weeks into the season, saving the remaining episodies for summer viewing.

Each show typically follows the rookies through several plotlines, cutting back and forth in the action, and trying to wrap everything up within the allotted hour while leaving the rookies with some lessons at the end of the day. Production values are at least averagely good for television. The cast is a diverse and surprising strong collection of young actors, including Adam Goldman and Leelee Sobieski, who are surpervised by a veteran cop, well-played by Terry Kenney.

Is it worth watching? Other reviewers have noted that it isn't terribly realistic, and that's probably fair. The rookies seem to see a lot of action each week, and seem to be incredibly smart or persistant or lucky in the face of each challenge. The dialogue and the sets are probably a little too clean. On the other hand, there have been some good storylines, even gut-wrenching ones, and a real effort to portray the actors as rounded if falliable human beings with interesting backstories. The pairing of the rookies from week to week has been entertaining all by itself. It does not appear to this reviewer that the episodes this summer were shown in order, as there have been a couple of significant plot discontinuities. But with all that said, it's not a bad show, and for summer television, it is well above average.

I loved this show every episode was Great, I wish they would bring it back. This is the only show I've ever bought. I loved that it wasn't always about the bad stuff that happened in the city but the interaction among the cops with each other was so well thought out. I even purchased Meloni Fiona's "The Bridge" because of a song I heard on the show and I had never heard of Meloni Fiona. I could go on and on, but I'll stop now.

Great series. Did not get the promotion that it deserved. Solid acting, suspenseful scenes, and just overall entertaining if you enjoy police shows.
