It's another cop show set in Los Angeles. Some interesting situations. It's
entertaining enough without being depressing.

It's about a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Dept. trainee Deputy (Danny
Nucci) and his days spent under the tutelage of a sometimes grouchy T.O.
(Training Officer, played by Ernie Hudson.) I like it, but YMMV...
Well, having been a police officer for over 10 years, I rarely watch cop
shows, since I don't want to sit and watch the same thing that I do for a
living on my off time, and most shows have serious accuracy and credibility
issues (Hunter, Chips, anything with Don Johnson...). I've been a regular
viewer of 10-8 because I can relate to some of the scenarios depicted.
Granted, creativity for TV has distorted some of the things they do (you
don't right back to duty after shooting somebody!), but I have laughed
uproariously over some of the FTO/Trainee interactions, because they hit the
nail on the head on some of that stuff.
That being said, I am a big "Shield" addict! Exception to the rule?
The biggest critics of the police are those who
have never worn a badge and worked the streets.
