Article mentions it, but Tudyk (Wash) already was on The Rookie.  And lived, despite it being a close call which in hindsight just now I am both surprised and relieved they didn't put us through that again as a Serenity reference.

They could have a reunion with Alan Tudyk, just have him be a stabbing victim in the opening sequence.

Unfortunately it's not possible to have a 100% reunion now.

Maybe they can bring Ron Glass on.

/oh wait

Are they going to point out how Malcolm Reynolds was decidedly anti-authoritarian while this Rookie is an arm of state oppression?

If they need a life-like corpse to dig up in the woods, as part of an new case, Ron Glass is your man.

Magruda: Are they going to point out how Malcolm Reynolds was decidedly anti-authoritarian while this Rookie is an arm of state oppression?


In the rookie he is a 40 year old going through a late term career change and trying to make a difference. He is still idealistic and doesn't quite see everything yet.

I hope you are just joking but can't we just try and enjoy the show?

At this point in history anything that idealizes the police is harmful propaganda. I watched half of the first season before i gave up on it.

I do concede that television shows set in modern times featuring police are problematic.

Any police drama or Show featuring law enforcement for the foreseeable future will have to be set far into the future or be set you nice historical setting.

Knowing how much of an asshole Adam Baldwin is IRL, it's hard to muster any excitement for his involvement.

With the exception of like  the Wire and the Shield, they've all been historically been used as a propaganda tool to improve public perception of the police.

Hell, the Texas rangers are a real organization with  terrible history and everyone's public perception of them is based mostly on Walker Texas Ranger.

I think that the wire and the shield are the two television shows that actually tried to portray police work as it actually is in our society. I think you are right that most other shows try really hard to play up the heroes in blue theme without looking at the other side of the law enforcement coin.

The Dredd reboot was not supposed to be a blueprint, but it is looking more and more likely.

"Homicide" also did a pretty good job of portraying the duality, bias, etc.

/David Simon was a writer and producer of both "Homicide" and "The Wire".

I completely agree.

In fact, I've said the same thing in many a thread.  I've often said we need more Andy Taylors and fewer Audie Murphys.

But by the same token, saying all police shows are "harmful propaganda" is in itself harmful propaganda.

Don't be all shocked and hurt when you take an extreme position and someone mocks you for it.

They should just have the guy who played alternate universe Adam Baldwin in con man show up instead of Baldwin. He's not a repugnant waste of acting talent.

Yeah, the existence of two shows that depict something close to reality completely invalidates the point.

Well, from a logical standpoint, yes it does.

And what about all those cop reality shows?  Like the ones A&E and CBS just canceled?  I mean, I thought  real cops being watched by cameras was a good thing.

The Rookie is a steaming pile of garbage and I blame it all on him. It's like Fillion took a page out of Mariska's playbook on SVU. It is laughable to see him, an old man, trying to pull all the shiat he does.
How an aging "rookie" basic-biatch uniformed cop is running drug ops and going on serial killer investigations is beyond me. He has plastered himself on every scene as well. It is grating and annoying. And I like the guy but jeeeeeez.

Because it doesn't reflect reality and viewers who shape their perception of the world on it are woefully misinformed.

The instances of drug crime is more than double that of reality. Prostitution was shown 5 times more prevalent than actual crime statistics suggest, and about 75% more violent crime. Towards the end of the series, 95% of segments ended in arrest.

Source

It suffers from the same thing every reality show does. The boring parts are cut out and the interesting parts are spliced together in a way that keeps viewer's attention. It warps reality to make it entertaining and, much like shouting housewives, should not be the basis for anyone's policy positions.

All police from all times are "problematic".  Even police that are tans chrono are " problematic".  Timecop - problematic.  Timetrax - problematic.  Old west police - problematic.  Police from the middle ages - problematic.  Police in the far future - problematic.

The only solution is to ban police.  If a person thinks they have done wrong, they need to find a way to justice in their own hearts.

Agree with you both. Loved him in Castle. Recently re-watched the series, which was great until the season when they got engaged. Then it suffered from the Moonlighting curse.
