Back at it again (because I’m clearly way more exhausted than I thought because I posted this on a Wednesday… ) and I can’t wait to share with you three police-oriented TV shows. From which, by the way, I love two very much and both happen to be Canadian. So in case you were wondering, who does police-shows the best, my answer would be Canadians!
It wasn’t hard for me to pick one US show that focuses on police work because currently, there’s only one that hasn’t pissed me off or that hasn’t ran for so long that I’ve lost interest. So, as of now, Lucifer is my favourite US police procedural show on air and it has a lot to do with Tom Ellis and his charm. Besides, I like the fantasy element and the fact that the main character, the devil, is literally walking around telling everyone he’s the devil… I mean, that seems like something a devil would do. The crime solving is not so realistic but it’s Lucigfer solving crime so, it’s hardly something I would criticise.
Out of the two Canadian TV-shows, Rookie Blue is definitely the one that’s less about the police work and more about the relationships between co-workers. But that doesn’t mean there’s no police work, trust me, there is a lot of it here. Plus, like I said, it also focuses on various relationships, and career goals and Rookie Blue is simply quite a great show. Also, a bit funny when you let it be, and a bit sad too because there’s this one thing or maybe many things… and trust me, all of it will make you emotional.
Now comes the show that I would rank first if I was talking about police shows. Maybe it’s because it feels the most realistic and most truthful representation of police work, or maybe all those US shows have literally brainwashed our minds with every other procedural crime show ever. Flashpoint is amazing, it’s the kind of show that I learned from. Not just in regards to police work but life in general. It’s really really great and it’s not talked about enough! There are realistic situations and even though I saw it ages ago, I still remember an episode regarding a bomb.. and I think that episode will never leave me. So Flashpoint is awesome, watch it, now!
