    You may be correct, I just get a brother/sister feeling, not a mid life crisis one. Just my take.

    Yes. If I'm looking for reasons why this show is on the fence in the ratings, the deception and lies coming out of our hero's relationship are a good place to start.

    I was sad to see what happened in last nights episode. I liked the Captain.

    I'm not used to these one-and-done episodes. Wouldn't it have made more sense to drag out the green-light on Nolan over the course of the season with Cole as the big baddie nemesis? Instead we get a very quick and unbelievable wrap-up with a roadblock on a nowhere street suddenly snaring the baddie like a fly in a very convenient web. I think I'll stick to the limited series on cable.

    I was wondering if it was canceled because ABC is showing the 1969 documentary series in the time slot. The last episode to me didn’t feel like a season finale. Maybe it was.

    Just started watching this last night. Love Fillion as an actor and was excited to check this out. I liked it for the first couple of episodes, but then the head-shaking silliness became too much. Yes, I know it is just a TV show, but come on. These cops run into more serious action in a day than real cops see in a lifetime. The characters are so stereotypical and predictable. They have checked off every SJW ticky-box to make sure no one gets offended in casting. A guy gets gut-shot with a rifle and is back at work in no time? I...I just can't. This is more like "Police Academy" than a believable cop show.
    I wish a studio would release a more realistic cop show. Not totally real-life, because that would be quite boring (or just go watch "Cops") but something at least plausible.

    I like the show but will only your one point of how much action they run into. Yes, it’s not realistic, but do you ya really want to see a typical beat cop’s day? I bet you don’t.

    How in the current climate a showrunner could fail to act on credible allegations of sexual harassment made repeatedly by one of his show's stars is utterly beyond me.
