Stars Nathan Fillion this time as a rookie cop. Makes a change from Castle where he played the writer side -kick. Other well known actors from other shows that were cancelled or ended are in this series. The cast seems well suited to their new roles in this series. Has humour as well as drama and action. I like it so far.

love this show. This is a good story about an older man becoming a cop starting as a rookie. Everybody treats him like an old man. This is a good idea for a show..
