We donít seem to have a thread. I really enjoy this show. Was not what I was expecting, with Fillion I though it would be a comedy but itís actually just a drama.

Just found season 3 has been running since January

So with BLM I would of course expect it to affect cop shows like the rookie and even Brooklyn nine nine. That said I feel like the show is handling it incredibly poorly. No subtlety. I feel like episodes are hitting me with a sledgehammmer. Itís actually so rough at points it takes me right out of the show.

There is even an episode where Fillions character is told to be careful and that just doing a simple kind act might make him feel good but wonít really help the community. I feel thatís a wired point for a tv show to make.

I agree that they are hitting us over the head with the bad cop thing. I also agree that the whole "you're a jerk because you are genuinely just trying to do something nice but you are doing it wrong" thing was a bit much. I really do like this show and I love all the characters and I agree that I pictured it to be kind of a silly comedy but it is way better then I expected.

They took this show down the shitter with this stuff. Itís important stuff but way to over done. I think maybe even more so with the way I watched the current episodes straight through instead of going week to week. Having Superman as the bad cop...lame.

Blue Bloods handles it so much better.

I fear for Lucifer.

Yep.

I find myself curious how the ratings will be this half of the season. Could very well sink themselves.
