Training Day: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Training Day: Season 1 (2017)



Critic Consensus: Training Day falls short of recapturing the excellence of the film in its television incarnation -- and fails to distinguish itself from the current squad of tired police procedurals.

Tv Season Info

The crime drama series "Training Day" is a follow-up to the 2001 film of the same name and takes place 15 years after the events of the movie. Frank Rourke (Bill Paxton), a veteran LAPD detective with ambiguous morals, heads the Special Investigation Section that hunts the most dangerous criminals. When his harsh methods are no longer tolerated, Deputy Chief Joy Lockhart (Marianne Jean-Baptiste) sends Kyle Craig (Justin Cornwell), a young and idealistic cop, undercover as a trainee to work with Frank and gather enough information to take him down. The first season of the series follows Kyle, Frank and his team as they fight crime. As Frank teaches the younger man about life on the street, Kyle starts seeing the older cop in a positive light, worrying his superiors and his wife Alyse (Lex Scott Davis), who is afraid he might try to get revenge on his father's murderer.

Critic Reviews for Training Day: Season 1

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (15)

This is Training Day with training wheels.

February 3, 2017 | Rating: D | Full Review…

Viewers could do worse than tuning in every week to see Frank troll department heads about a lack of donuts in staff meetings, but Training Day doesn't show enough in three episodes to merit its origins.

February 2, 2017 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Bruckheimer assembly-line sausage stuffed with plenty of hooey and violence - but the leads are plenty appealing.

Top Critic

It's an odd, conflicted show, unwilling to hold a dark tone. Poor Paxton wrestles with over-the-top dialogue. He deserved better. So do viewers.

February 1, 2017 | Full Review…

Paxton, as the battle-scarred, Texas-born Rourke, speaks with a comically over-baked rasp that makes Kiefer Sutherland's old Jack Bauer character sound like Mickey Mouse.

Top Critic

What I saw in three episodes wasn't intriguing enough to make me crave a fourth, or to understand exactly why CBS thought now was the time to glorify the kind of police officer who thinks laws are for other people.
