There are plenty of police dramas that concentrate on detectives, and I love those shows, but following cops on the streets of LA is what makes The Rookie special.

Audience Reviews for The Rookie: Season 3

    This show has gone from one we liked a lot to one we can't stand to watch. The last couple of episodes were apparently written by some woke political hacks. I'm sick and tired of Hollywood forcing people to watch a big heaping spoonful of over the top left wing propaganda. The last episode was even worse than the others in that it had nothing to do at all with any kind of law enforcement. It was like one long social media post. Total crap!

    The entire show is now hateful stereotypes. It used to be an enjoyable comedy, now it's all "Woke" .... really sorry I wasted my money on this train wreck....

    Love this show! Tim and Lucy's Chemistry is off the charts.

    Season 1 & 2 were great, but this season has been hard to watch. I don't need some "woke" writers views shoved down my throat.

    Way too much politics this season. Stopped watching it after 4 episodes, who writes this crap? In trying to adress racism they became racists. Five stars for the effort to ruin a perfectly fine police drama by forcing politics down our throat. Will not watch again.

    Nathan Filion is very likeable in this underrated show. Makes me want to forget the NCIS crap that is currently running. Exciting plot lines that keep you at the tip of your chair and not afraid to discuss controversial and issues like police racism. Things happen and you want to know how it ends. Compared to NCIS: Los Angeles this is a huge plus. This is a show I want to re-watch at some time.

    Fantastic show that is also dealing with current issues affecting our nation in a very educated manner. Also Nathan Fillion and the rest of the cast are an absolute DE-LIGHT to watch.

    I loved The Rookie so much from season 1 and 2, it actually felt like a show focused on the characters and to show a story. Now season 3 just shoves politics down people's throats and is always talking about how bad police can be or how unequal it is with women, this show has turned into a terrible one sided view of a politics. The show would be so much better if they went back to filming a the show as a show. They make it seem like a fake news website shoving false information down your throat.

    Just like many other this season was written like a big apology letter. The first two seasons were about good cops doing good things and fighting bad people. This season is about good cops apologizing for bad cops and still being considered bad cops until they apologize some more. Thank goodness there are still better options for cop dramas on TV. I do hate the fact that Nathan Fillion is dead center in the middle of this dumpster fire but he's a good actor and hopefully when the smoke has cleared he can move on to something better.

    I'm a UK viewer and I'm amazed at how all your cop shows have been transformed this season. The Rookie has come off worst. The show's vibe has gone from cheerful and not-too-serious to miserable and preachy. Last night's episode 6 is where I got off the ride. Anyone not knowing any better would think that the USA doesn't have any black people who are just plain bad. And if they believed what they saw on FBI and Most Wanted they'd think that the only terrorists in the USA were right-wing nut jobs. I know the UK is going the same way; but at least our television is still relatively neutral.
