I'll give it a try, although some of you 'young 'uns' might have to coach me through the new terminology. :D   I was brought up on Dixon Of Dock Green you know! :rolleyes:

I thought it was a pretty good show that expressed and portrayed well the issues related to cuts to the force and some of the BS we put up with

Watched a few minutes of it last night and had to turn it off. It was just painful, especially the bit with DC and his boss. I just found the whole thing to be a bit childish.

I've got to admit I enjoy it - but I see it for what it is, it's not a documentary or a factual production, it's an entertainment drama programme...

 

Plus Jacob Ifan is pleasing on the eye...

I liked it, but it does take diversity to a whole new level e.g..

Chinese lesbian = all action hero

White male PC = fat and useless

Black male PC = gritty but caring 

Gay male PC = handsome, sensitive and caring

Straight white male DI= pervert who visits prostitutes

I'm sure there are some I've missed out

It's the new Bill! :D Although it's all made up it does show an element of truth in some of the issues we face.

Don't forget the Muslim officer. The Home Office would have a right hard on over the diversity at that nick.

First episode, tutor constable squaring up to his rookie?

second episode, rookie feeling taser effects as he grabbed someone being tased?

It's rubbish.

 

edit, I'm a special with just over 18 months service, so hardly 'experienced' and it makes me cringe.

It's entertainment.  And OK at that.  Enough realistic situations, comments and dialogue to be interesting to the job without it becoming Police Interceptors.  I'd rather have more original drama like this on telly, rather than another niche reality/talent show (Bake Off, Apprentice, Watercolour Challenge,X Factor etc.)

Watch Ep1 last night... It was soooooo cringey, but I just couldn't stop watching it. Nothing like real life, but hey-ho!

I am a special with only 4 months experience and parts of it made me cringe too. However, I have watched both episodes all the way through!

At the end of the day, the factual accuracies of technical points like use of taser and barb spread etc aren't what people watch programmes like this for, just like doctors don't hang on every word Casualty says taking in tips...
