    I love Rookie Blue. I look forward to it every week. I would hate to see such an awesome show to get cancelled and of course Ben Bass is awesome.

    I agree with Dan H. on my levels. After watching last night’s episode I was starting to get lost. Tran-gendre issues are so sensitive and I don’t think “that show” was able to communicate how complicated and emotional this issue is. Was it trown in for ratings? Andy wines too much and the show is too much about her. You have a cast of wonderful actors and the characters are rich. Would like to know more about them, ie: doing an episode about the death of Dov’s brother, it’s been left up in the air. The male roles need to be beefed up. Gregory Smith (a phenominal actoetr) use him more, as well as Chris and Nick. Show is focused too much on Andy’s sex life ……………gets old.

    The first season of “Rookie Blue” was great. A consistently good plot line that was complimented by excellent writing and strong characters. By the end of the second season, it went from being a gripping show to being an unrealistic soap opera. If a real police officer screwed up as many times as the Rookie Blue class of officers, they would have been terminated, long ago. Add to that the fact that the plot line has become more of a “who is sleeping with whom” plot, rather than relying on solid, case-related plot lines, Rookie Blue has become dull, predictable, and not worth the electricity it takes to power the equipment to watch the program. Give me reruns of “Elementary” over “Rookie Blue”, any day.

    Love it keep it and get rid of all these stupid shows. Also I think you should go get the show Jersey Girl from CH 2 and make it a summer show
