Your Next Box Set: Rookie Blue
On the lookout for a new box set to spend your evenings devouring? Each week, hmv.com will be recommending you a series that will swallow up your whole life until your finish the last episode...
This week, it’s Rookie Blue…
What is it?
We’re in Toronto and we’re following five young cops, who are catapulted straight out of the training academy and on to the streets. We follow them as they grow into their role as police officers, their lives, loves and watch them toughen up before our eyes. It’s police procedural, with dirt under its nails and a real rawness. If you love shows like The Shield and Law & Order then this will be right up your street.
Who’s in it?
Missy Peregrym, who was once a regular on Heroes, plays leading light Andy McNally, with Everwood star Gregory Smith, Enuka Okuma, Travis Milne, Matt Gordon, Charlotte Sullivan, Ben Bass and Lyriq Bent as the other mainstays of the series.
Why should I watch it?
The characters are superbly drawn, the writing is taut and focused and the plots constantly keep you guessing.
Describe the show in three words…
Tough, uncompromising and stupidly addictive.
Season Four of Rookie Blue is released on Monday (September 1st) in hmv stores.
