A sort of documentary disguised as a police academy story.
Kurt Russel plays the rookie in this episode. We have already seen him in another story of this series, in a different character, although a cop too, a more experienced one, if I remember. It is not a classic routine daily cop burden here but it focuses, in the first part, on the cop instruction, drills and so on. And of course of the friendship between the rookie and another policeman. It emphasizes on the training for the patrolmen, with of course some tensions between the lead and some of his colleagues, fellow police academy academy colleagues. Some funny moments, not a total noir tale, but not a POLICE ACADEMY story either...It explains how hard it may be for a young cop to belong to the force and learn his new job. Interesting but nothing special. I will point out that this episode doesn't talk only about the rookie, but also about some of his partners.
