Quote

In the premiere, small-town guy John Nolan pursues his dream of being a police officer after a life-altering incident. As the force's oldest rookie, he's met with skepticism from some higher-ups who see him as just a walking midlife crisis.

Good start.  :)

Near the beginning, when that guy threatened to steal Lucy's car (and possibly her), and she just smiled... I burst out laughing! :lol:  I knew he was gonna regret that!!  :lol:

Lucy's training officer got on my nerves.  But I did like the dynamic between John and his T.O.

Oh, and Melissa O'Neil got to sing!!  :D  (Briefly. ;) )  And ... secret romance, lol.

I gather he'll be trying to solve problems by talking to the perpetrators.  Promising start.  Though frankly I could do without the romance.  They didn't show us the training days - I guess that's when the romance started?  And that's a pretty fancy house on a cop's salary.  What's with that?

Sounded like.  I seem to remember some dialogue about that.  *check's transcript*  Here it is.  First:

After six months together in the Academy, you've earned the right to be here.

So definitely when / where they met.  And then:

Quote

Tell me again why we can't go out for breakfast?
Because someone from the station might see us, and two months of quality sneaking around would go out the window.

Yep, definitely started at the academy.  :)

Thanks for all that!!  Sometimes I don't pay enough attention.  OTOH I'm ready for some non-serialized actual episodic drama I don't have to pay full attention to...  Geez, does episodic even exist any more?? A series you could possibly tune in to every few eps and know what's going on?   OK, that's a general bitch - most of my queries on this were about back story.

You're welcome.  :cool:  I often notice significant little details in dialogue, but then forget the wording.  That's why I like checking transcripts, because I usually know exactly what I'm looking for.  :)

This is probably a hare-brained theory but Nolan's mentioning of his lottery-ticket habit plus his vague description of his ever-traveling trust-fund roomie who lets him stay in the house for free made me wonder if he won the lottery at some point, thus freeing him to pursue his dream of becoming a police officer.

That ... would make a lot of sense!

His stories (excuses?) are vague and inconsistent:  First episode he said he was renting the house, second episode he said it was free.  Where is the trust-fund homeowner?  ... Spain, no, China, um, no idea actually!

And when he gave his lottery ticked away, he said he started buying them for "hope", and has bought one a week as a ritual ever since.  "but I don't need it anymore.  Now I'm giving the hope to you."

Obviously he was talking about hope, something she clearly needed more than him at that moment.  But the "I don't need it anymore" could also have been the money! :oh:

I've find myself liking this more than I thought I would. I think I'll watch the entire season. I do hope that Tim gets toned down a bit. He is super annoying.

You know, it is quite possible that John is wealthy and just hiding it. Makes more sense than a super rich college friend renting/letting him stay for free in a house that the rich friend clearly doesn't need.
