Product Description

“Grey’s Anatomy with guns” – Los Angeles Times

Serve. Protect. Don’t Screw Up.

At the police academy they trained together. Now they’re on the job together. Rookie cop Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym, “Heroes”) and her fellow new recruits are ready to brave anything, but in the world of big city policing, even the smallest mistake can have life-or-death consequences.

Amazon.com

Rookie Blue aims to be a different kind of cop show, walking a fine line between tough swagger and the emotional impact of all that toughness. Five rookies join a metropolitan police force (Toronto--the series comes from Canada--but the city is virtually generic): Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym, Reaper), daughter of a former cop; Chris Diaz (Travis Milne), a by-the-book guy who lacks initiative; Traci Nash (Enuka Okuma), a single mom having an affair with a detective; Dov Epstein (Gregory Smith), a hothead out to prove himself; and Gail Peck (Charlotte Sullivan), an ice queen who feels like her connections with higher-ups make the other cops think she's not up to snuff. Supposedly the rookies get stuck with the boring or dirty jobs, yet over the course of the 13-episode first season these particular rookies regularly stumble into high-stakes trouble, be it undercover drug busts or a serial pedophile. McNally is the show's center and therefore gets the most complicated romantic life, caught between an edgy undercover cop (whose cover she blew in the first episode) and a charming homicide detective.

Peregrym's combo of tomboy athleticism, healthy farm-girl good looks (the kind that would be called "all-American" if she weren't Canadian), and assertive-yet-vulnerable personality are the essence of the show. It's essentially a more feminine take (more focused on the personal lives and emotional responses of the characters) on a traditionally macho terrain. The show occasionally goes too far with plot turns that push for over-the-top dramatic moments, but even at its most ridiculous--and the routine accumulation of guns-drawn situations can certainly get ridiculous--Rookie Blue remains likable and empathetic. It's a descendent of Hill Street Blues, but a little softer and a lot less quirky. The scripts are swift and efficient but take the time to let the characters interact; there's a sort of emotional breathing room in the show that sets it apart from most contemporary cop shows. The extras are your basic making-of featurettes, no audio commentaries. --Bret Fetzer

5.0 out of 5 stars Blu ray adds a lot to this great show June 5, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Summer series are often overlooked but luckily I found ROOKIE BLUE last summer. I was pulled in by Gregory Smith who I had loved on EVERWOOD and what I found was a cop show very unique, addicting and very well made. The show follows 5 rookies right from the very first day they go on the job. The show is perfectly cast. Characters are fleshed out fully and you get to know them and care for them very quickly. We follow the rookies as they learn the job step by step led by their training officers. The detectives in the department are also given full life here. This show is a very realistic look at the lives of newbie rookies.

All dramas attempt that perfect blend of drama, relationships and slight comedy. Few succeed but ROOKIE BLUE does it very succesfully. I just finished watching the first season on blu ray and was very impressed at the character development and depth this series created in only 13 episodes. After just a few I felt like I knew these people. Every week there is an intense drama story to be told while the inter-relationships of the squad always stay in full focus as well. Stand-outs here are Missy Peregrym as rookie Andy McNally and Ben Bass as her training officer Sam Swarek. Their very strong chemistry and give and take relationship is a big part of the glue that holds this show together. And Ben Bass hits the screen here as the next sex symbol just as McDreamy did on Greys Anatomy. But all the other actors are just as strong. From the biggest role to the smallest, each is perfectly cast.

Now to the blu ray. To watch this show in blu ray adds a whole other dimension over the dvd. It comes in an inspired 1080p video transfer and the picture is crisp and detail strong. Colors are vibrant and flesh tones very realistic.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic summer entertainment!!! August 20, 2011
Format:DVD
Rookie Blue had me hooked from the very first episode. I love the acting and the storylines. Yes, I am very aware it isn't a factual driven police show but as I am not looking to join the police academy a documentary is not required. All I am looking for from this show is entertainment and in that it does it's job.

For those wondering what city they are serving and protecting it is Toronto.

5.0 out of 5 stars A little 'Grey's academy' but so good :) May 20, 2011
Format:DVD
Had this posted at Amazon.UK but thought I'd post it here too:

Started watching this when it started showing in England, I liked it straight away, it is very grey's anatomy hence 'grey's academy' but it really works, after two episodes I was completely hooked.
Don't write this off as your average cop show cos it really isn't. It marries the perfect combination of drama & comedy, with a little romance thrown in for good measure. Missy Peregrym (Reaper) is brilliant as Andy Mcnally the main character & her TO (training officer) Sam Swarek played by a relative unknown- Ben Bass is just as good, they have great chemistry together & not to go all girly but he's quite easy on the eyes ;)
The stories are engaging & heartfelt, the rest of the ensemble cast all play strong characters, I absolutely love this show it gets very funny, also emotional, it doesn't glamourise being a police officer at all, it tells it like it is.
It's not difficult to see why after three episodes airing overseas it got picked up for a second season. Keeping it rookie blue all the way :)

5.0 out of 5 stars What a wonderful well acted show!! October 24, 2010
By Emily07

This is the story of five rookies who work in a Toronto Police Department. It shows the mistakes the newbies make, which are at times pretty funny, and how life on the streets is a lot different than any of them expected. The show is very people driven, and shows the ups and downs of relationships in the police department, as well as the work they do. It is one of the best shows out there, and fortunately, is NOT formula driven. Each week is new and interesting.

It is well acted, has a great supporting cast and wonderful writers. It is made in Canada, and is more low key than the shot-em-up with lots of car chases that is so common in this country. Rookie Blue is refreshingly honest and I believe gives more of a real look at police work than any other shows I've seen in a long time. I love the show, and can't wait for the new season to come out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best new series of 2010 April 5, 2011
Verified Purchase
This excellent pilot set the tone for the other episodes that followed in this new series' first season. It is like Grey's Anatomy was in the beginning, with great writing and in-depth character development coupled with fresh, new story lines. I have pre-ordered the first season due for release on DVD in a few months. I believe ABC has picked up this series for a second season and am looking forward to it.

Nice , sweet and full of optimism. A very refreshing way to put a very old story (a continuation of "Hill street blues").
I liked it very much.
