* GenreSavvy: During the 'scavenger hunt' exercise Dov realizes that the key part of undercover police work is to get a criminal to trust you and then being able to betray that trust to make an arrest.

He does this in a very straightforward manner while Andy and Traci spend a lot of time creating new personae for themselves. He realizes that quite soon after. And that he's ''good'' at it.

'''''Rookie Blue''''' is an Creator/{{ABC}} (Global in Canada) series focusing around five new rookies assigned to Division 15 straight out of the academy. The show focuses a lot more on the personal lives of the rookies than other crime shows, and has been described as "''Series/GreysAnatomy'' with rookie cops". It follows their introduction to real policing under the guidance of the senior officers and detectives at Division 15, and how they struggle to cope with the toll the job takes on them and their lives. While there is a main character, [[TomboyishName Andy]] [[GirlNextDoor McNally]], the show utilises its ensemble cast very well and every episode will follow each of the rookies and some of the senior officers. The series is one of handful of shows airing on US TV (''Series/{{Flashpoint}}'' being another) in which its Canadian setting is actually preserved.
