A drama following a middle aged man who pursues his dream of becoming an LAPD officer.

John Nolan is a middle aged man from a small town. After a life-changing incident, he decides to pursue his dream of being an officer for the Los Angeles Police Department.

But as the force's oldest rookie, he faces skepticism from some senior officers who simply see him as a walking midlife crisis. John will need to keep up with not only the criminals, but the younger cops in the precinct.

If he can make use of his own life experiences while remaining determined, he just might become a success in this new chapter of his life.

Agree with "Private Badge" on tired of Hollywood bullying us with their agenda. Tired of having to sit with the remote in hand to FFwd past their awkwardly forced displays. It's hateful. It's disrespectful. It's totally unnecessary. It doesn't help people to "accept" when it's habitually forced show after show after show. Back off and calm down, ya big Hollywood bullies!

It's interesting how Hollywood/networks forced totally nude scenes, back in the 80s/90s, but "covered" them with blocking the privates. Didn't need to see Sipowitz' bare butt. Didn't need to see that the actors were actually completely naked. After enough complaining, enraged complaining, that crap stopped. How enraged do we have to be to get this "new" bullying agenda stopped?

I'm getting sick of tired of Hollywood "gaying up" it's shows with supposedly gay characters. If another character male or female kisses another of the same sex again on this show, I'm done.

I'm about to retire after decades on the job and this is such a highlight of our week....I tease my wife how a lot is "a stretch" to say the least, but it's not a documentary, it's a stellar cast providing some exceptional entertainment week after week....so please give this show a chance and giving Nathan another long standing hit....he's great to watch and perfect for this role....

We have loved this show from the beginning. Nathan Fillion is a accomplished actor who gives expression and nuance to the character. We see a gentle but steadfast character who Fillion portrays with humor and sensitivity. The other cast members create a fun and current drama. Thank you for renewing.
