If you haven’t already noticed by now, under the section headings to the right of this article is a section on what I am currently watching on television, listening music wise and what book I might be reading at this present time.
Anyways, one of my favorite TV shows at the moment it Rookie Blue, if you haven’t already seen it (or even heard of it) go check it out, you won’t regret it. Below I will give you a brief synopsis of the show and its characters, and some great news I only learned today which is probably old news by now, but its better late than never I always say.
Rookie Blue is a Canadian police drama television series starring Missy Peregrym and Everwood’s Gregory Smith. It was created by Morwyn Brebner, Tassie Cameron, and Ellen Vanstone.
The series is set in Toronto and, though similar to another series called Flashpoint in that it does not make overt references, it does use local street names, such as King Street, and Jameson Avenue in Parkdale which was the location of a call-out in the pilot episode.
I have worked as a police officer in the UK and although this is based in Canada which will no doubt have different policing procedures, this show does not come close to what real policing is all about, but then it is a drama series, with some really good actors.
Missy Peregrym – Andy McNally
Gregory Smith – Dov Epstein
Enuka Okuma – Traci Nash
Travis Milne – Chris Diaz
