Rookies

Has anyone watched this show? They follow police rookies during their first 12 weeks on patrol in New Orleans and somewhere in Florida. Its really interesting!

It was sad, there was an episode with a kid, he was 21 joined the force. His FTO was not impressed with him during the first 9 weeks and watching, you kind of think he was a douche. Somehow he gets it together by week 12 and is cut loose on his own. His first FTO lined up a patrol car for him and everything. It was cool. He was let loose on like June 10th to patrol alone... on July 4 he proposed to his high school sweetheart and then on July 5th, he was called to a domestic disturbance and is shot once and killed as his FTO, the back up on the call walks on scene.

Anyway... I was just wondering if anyone had watched it. I cant remember if its on A&E or TruTV

I have been watching it and like it sort of...the reason I say that is I like the premise of it...but much like Speeders, they tend to show dumb things rather than interesting "Cops"-like stuff.

That's because rookies tend to do a lot of dumb things. I've only seen two episodes but, it seems like a good show. I'm an FTO so I get to experience it first hand. It's very frustrating yet rewarding when they finally put it all together.
