Summer Shows 2012

Summer has just started, well for us the heat started a while back, but the summer shows are just starting and the line up is looking good. These are the current shows that I have on my radar. There are a few coming up for July but I don’t have site of that yet. There were a lot of good and disappointing shows from this season, and some crazy season finales. My favorite three from the summer are Falling Skies, Franklin & Bash, and Suits but the others are all pretty damn good too.

Rookie Blue

A group of young, rookie police officers must learn to adapt to their jobs and meet the expectations of their friends, families and co-workers. To serve, Protect, and Not Screw Up!

This is an ABC show which turned out to be much better then I expected, a bunch of rookies joining the police force for the first time, fresh out of the academy. The combination of characters and the solid story makes this a very good show, you start liking the rookies right away, there are the comedic moments, and there is a good combination of action and drama to pull you in. The first season is only 13 episodes and you finish it quickly because its pretty damn good.

Blue Bloods

Generations of one family all in the NYPD, from the normal street cop all the way to the commissionar. All with their own issues while on the police force with Donnie Wahlberg (Yes the brother of Mark Wahlberg) as the troubled detective who breaks the rules to get the job done. This show turned out to be the little gem of the season, an unexpected success and I really like it. If you are into cop shows then this is a must see, I like where its going and I like the Police Commissionar played Tom Selleck.

The Other Guys – Trailer

Detective Allen Gamble is a forensic accountant who’s more interested in paperwork than hitting the streets. Detective Terry Hoitz is a tough guy who has been stuck with Allen as his partner ever since an unfortunate run-in with Derek Jeter. Allen and Terry idolize the city’s top cops, Danson and Highsmith, but when an opportunity arises for the Other Guys to step up, things don’t quite go as planned.

Mark Walhberg, Will Ferrel, Samuel L Jackson, and Dwayne Johnson! How can this movie not be fantastic! I love Will Ferrel in these movies!

“New” Officers

KuwaitPolice

Going to Kuwait airport you tend to see a lot of strange and odd things and not think too much about it, but what I wasn’t expecting was female officer. I stood there for about a minute staring, stunned by what I was seeing in front of me. I have seen female immigration officers, they are better then the previous male immigration officers, and now Female Police Officers, Officers meaning high ranking police not the ones with a few slash marks but a Star or Mulaazim, an Officer. She was young and at the airport around 4 pm having a serious conversation with a two starred male Officer or Mulazim Awal. I’m not sure of the English translation of the rank but it was a sight, lets just hope the female injection into the police force will have a positive effect on the streets and functions, because right now most of these guys aren’t too functional. There could be hope in Kuwait with decisions such as these taking place, I’m always optimistic but this site I was happy to see, as a track record female PMs are making better decisions then some of the idiotic PMs. Still that was a shocker for me, now what would a guy do if he is stopped by a good looking female police officer since I heard they are also in the traffic police.
