Where’s season 2?!?Come on Apple, bring it on!.Score: 5/5

It could have been so good...but it's not!Nathan Fillion is great, he shows his great skills as an actor while injecting that sly humor of his. No problem with his performance. The rest of the show however, is absolute tosh. It looks like an LAPD recruiting video: Welcome to the LAPD, intense action, live in a mini-mansion, and sleep with beautiful rookies. Yet another show made by a committee of coked-up studio execs..Score: 1/5

LOVE THIS SERIES!!!! A MUST-SEE!Nathon Fillon is a brilliant actor who really makes this series worth watching. But all the other actors are really good as well. They are superbly casted. The writing is really good too! Just the right combination of action, drama and humor. Unfortunately there are so many series nowadays that are not very good. So I am even more thrilled to finally have such a great series to watch! Hope this series will run for a very long time. Am a big fan!!!.Score: 5/5

Good show, but flawed.The "rookies need to break up" storyline is so ridiculous and forced it puts a hard squeeze on an otherwise decent series. Their relationship is half the fun of the show. Fix that and I can live with the other cliches and issues with the story..Score: 3/5

Could have would have should haveIt’s such a great idea. It could have been great. The actors are good and solid. If only they had a more original script? It was so unoriginal and the set up of each character was by the numbers. It needs quirks and twists and turns. It was only good in fleeting moments. They should have worked on the script more..Score: 2/5

Jumped the sharkJumped the shark with the start of the 4th episode. Pushing the LGBT agenda and politically correct nonsense. And no cop would do this, listen to sob story and allow two arrested criminals to propose to each other. Just a way for the show to check the gay rights box. Sad. Will not be watching this show anymore. Wake up TV land, mainstream America does not want this crap pushed on us in every show..Score: 1/5

Cop show with heart!We loved the pilot and are looking forward to seeing more! Strong cast and fast-paced action moves everything along nicely!.Score: 5/5
