The 3 Top Cop Shows From The US That You Should Watch!

on Thursday, March 3, 2011

For the last month or so, I've been watching 3 great cop shows from America. Okay, one only started last week, "Rookie Blue" on the Universal channel on Sky. But anyway people should be watching the new "Hawaii 5-O" on Sky1 and "Blue Bloods" on Sky Atlantic.
Lets start off with "Hawaii 5-O". This new reboot by the guys who wrote the latest "Star Trek" and who have just completed its sequel, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. They are the exec-producers of the show. I never watched the original show and will probably never watch it, but I was really looking forward to the new version to start. It's actually really great. Your eyes are glued from start to finish of each episode.
Alex O'Loughlin plays the new younger Steve McGarrett, with James Caan's son, Scott Caan playing the newer verison of Daniel "Danno" Williams. "Lost" star, Daniel Dae Kim plays the new Chin Ho Kelly and the sexy Grace "Battlestar Galactica" Park plays his cousin, Kono Kalakaua.
Now lets move onto "Blue Bloods". Again, this is a show that keeps you eyes glued to the TV from start to finish of each episode. This stars Donnie Wahlberg as Detective Danny Reagan, the son of Police Commissioner, Frank Reagan, who is played by the great Tom Selleck from "Magnum PI".
This series follows a family of cops and well one lawyer, Erin Reagan, played by Bridget Moynahan, who try and take down the crime and declare justice in New York City. It's another amazing cop show. This is probably a bit better than "Hawaii 5-O", but still watch that show too. "Blue Bloods" is kinda like if "The Bill" was set in America, with a family of cops in it. AWESOME! It's not gritty, but it does have a lot of adult themes in it and it's got a lot of realism to it too. The plots in the episodes are things that can happen in real life.
And finally lets move onto "Rookie Blue", which is kinda like "The OC" meets.......well "Blue Bloods". It's got a bit of humor in it, but it does stick to the realism of the police work. It's only been on for one episode, but so far it seems like I will love the series as it goes on.
The show follows a young team of rookies, who join the police force and get tagged with partners that really don't care about them. The older partners hate new young cops.
It stars Missy Peregrym as the main character, Andy McNally, Gregory Smith as Dov Epstein, Travis Milne as Chris Diaz, Enuka Okuma as Traci Nash and finally Charlotte Sullivan as Gail Peck. The five of them are the rookies of the show. Again, another amazing show, even though it's only been one episode......
