Rookie Blue > Rookie Blue Review: How Shallow Can It Get? > Comments Page 2
I really did like this episode, and I didn't find it to be as full of cliches as you are pointing out. There were lots of good moments in the episode! For example, the scene of Andy walking out of the apartment was genius, and Sam driving his car really slow was really funny, also when Gerry says "well, that's great..cause I'm a Leo!". Moments like that made up for the few cliches.
One thing I'd like to add is that the show's writers have been very smart about when to add in names. This week was the first episode where Andy called him Sam, and it was very sweet!
I'll definitely keep watching this show, if only to find out what happens with Sam and Andy!
I love the show. I really want some development between Andy and Sam character. Amazing chemistry.
I watch this show simply because Sam Swarek is hilarious.
not to mention, ridiculously hot. :P
and I don't think the show is THAT bad....
Okay, so this website is to review shows that air, it is oh so very obvious. And they do a good job doing so.
I will admit that at times the review can be a bit more than one-sided, but it is still a review.
I personally like the show and think that they are, no matter how they are or how long it is taking them, but i think they are just trying to find their footing. it has been renewed for another season, which i am glad for, and despite their sometimes unoriginal plot devices, it is still somewhat captivating.
Something I would like to see done on this site, and this is something that I see done on another site, is to give the review of the episode and at the end of the review give a tiny bit of something like this-
WHAT WORKED- .......
this way we are treated to an 'objective' review and those who have an issue with how the site does reviews can get off their high-horse.
just a thought.
I like the show but hopefully the writing will improve for the second season. Keep the same actors and hire better writers.
if you hate this show so much why are you writing weekly reviews and keeping up this site, you're really annoying haha. can we get a replacement?
I broke my cardinal rule by watching a new show on ABC because they always ending up cancelling it without even giving it a chance. Nevertheless, I love Rookie Blue, especially the chemistry between Missy Peregrym and Ben Bass! I want to see more of them, especially Ben Bass! He is yummy! With respect to the article, I completely agree with the author regarding last night's episode. Even though it was still entertaining, the show was, for the most part, very one-dimensional. The writers do need to dig deeper into the characters to provide a more in-depth storyline instead of glossing over the events. I was glad to hear Rookie got picked up for another season. Hopefully, as the season progresses, we will see more layers of the characters and where they come from and less fluff.
@Aries93: All we do is judge? We're a TV review site. That's our job.
What shows do you watch that we review?
I love the show and TV Fanatic's constant criticism. I love TV Fanatic, but all you people really do is judge. How about trying to make your own TV Series and we'll see how you go with it all. I'd love to see the reviews.
I bring up some valid points about the cliches, but I find myself enjoying it in spite of all that. Just like Adele said, it's mostly because of Missy and Ben. They've made the show for me on the most part and find myself waiting for interactions between the two of them - and that's mostly what brings me back each week. I hope the writing does get better, because the actors seem to be trying really hard and I still think there's potential. Being from Toronto though, I do agree that it would be nice if they highlighted our city more, since they do film it here and use our Ontario Police cars and everything. It's a beautiful city :-)
I find myself watching the show despite some very simplistic (and mostly cliched) dialogue. The reason why? The cast is really strong and are doing their best to bring layers to the scripts they're being handed. Ultimately a lot of information about the characters is being told to us, rather than letting it show.
If Missy Peregrym and Ben Bass weren't as strong as they are....I don't think I'd be watching.
@me: You're entitled to your opinion, of course, I'm glad you like it.
But I made my view on this episode clear, didn't I? I tried to articulate the reasons why I disliked its lack of originality and lack of depth. I appreciate your reading, but instead of immaturely saying "shut up, you know nothing," why not expound on the reasons why you do you like it?
absolutely love the show
why are you hating on this show? you make no sense. this show is amazing, and was renewed after only three episodes. its not boring, its funny, witty and ultimately fabulous, so shut up. you know nothing.
