It's honestly some hard category to start up with... What happened to nice and slow? You see, I don't have just one TV-series I love! I have at least five! But I have decided that I have to pick one as my favorite. The toss-up is between (in random order) Glee, The Vampire Diaries, House, Rookie Blue and So You Think You Can Dance. "Do you watch these things? Most of them are for teens!" I know! But I love them anyway. Don't judge! When I sit down to watch an episode of a TV-series it's meant to give me a break from all the other tings I do all day. I want to be entertained! To laugh and smile and cry and be excited.
But, my favorite is a quite unusual choice...
My favorite television-series is Rookie Blue!
It's a Canadian police drama started in 2010, now in it's third season. It too only airs during the summer... The series is about five fresh rookies and how they handle the real life as a cop. You think that doesn't sound exciting? No, you're right, it doesn't. But it is! And the reason for that is that it's all so real and realistic. I've watched a lot of different agent-type TV-series (Alias, CSY, Covert Affairs and so on...) bit none of them are very realistic. Since this one is not produced in Hollywood, not even in the States, it had a whole different kind of truthfulness about it.
Here we get to see a cop's everyday life, with ups and downs. After watching this I started, for the first time, to think of the people behind the uniforms. What they feel like searching a house for a murderer. How terrifying and horrible a child-abduction can be for the cop in charge of the investigation. How a cop actually feel both during and after a fire. I could name countless examples, but I think you got the picture. In adition to all of this the actors are great! With Missy Peregrym (Andy McNally) and Ben Bass (Sam Swaerk) as the leading characters.
All in all, I love it, and I highly recommend you to see it!
