I just finished watching Rookie Blue, the new police drama on ABC. It’s not completely spectacular yet, but I see some potential. Also, it’s certainly got a feel of the pilot of Grey’s Anatomy. It’s a concept which worked for that hit show, so maybe it’ll work here. Time will tell.
The premier actor in the drama (the Meredith Grey), Missy Peregrym, playing Andy McNally, is pretty strong, portraying a decent bit of vulnerability and hopeful energy–I think she can carry the series, supported by an interesting group of actors. We’ll see!
