A quote from Metacritic says” Season 1 Review: Like its parent show, The Rookie: Feds is watchable because of its star and very little else. But Nash-Betts is just so darn watchable that you’ll enjoy the series despite any reservations you may have.

Overall, I give this show a 8/10 It only has two episodes out currently out with episodes coming out Tuesdays at 10pm on NBC as someone who watched the original show I feel like this is connecting the original to the new show very nicely and even hints at constant crossovers which i feel would make this show would be amazing.
