I am a fan of this and I am a writer focused on career and physical development to spread more issues and tips to develop and works through Professional resume writing service. Without Denzel's magnetism, the "world" of "Training Day" simply isn't that interesting. "Limitless" has a hook: what happens when an everyman takes a smart pill. What's the hook for a "Training Day" series? And, how would it be any different from "CSI LA," or "LAPD Blue," etc.? It's either going to be a standard, boring police procedural, or a character study of a corrupt cop/antihero -- which has also been done before.

Airdate: Training Day

New US crime series Training Day, based on the 2001 film starring Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke, begins this Sunday on Seven.

The small screen version stars Bill Paxton as Detective Frank Roarke, and Justin Cornwell as rookie cop Kyle Craig.

The cast also includes Julie Benz (Dexter, Roswell, No Ordinary Family, Hawaii Five-0).

With Lethal Weapon on Nine that makes Sundays the night for adaptations and buddy shows.

It premiered in the US earlier this month.

A gritty, intense drama from Jerry Bruckheimer, Training Day is a reimagining of the groundbreaking film of the same name, beginning 15 years later and exploring a modern-day Los Angeles in all its guts and glory. The LAPD’s Kyle Craig (Justin Cornwell) is one of the good guys. An idealistic, rookie cop bumped up to detective in an elite and elusive unit that goes after the worst of the worst. He’s been tasked to expose the corruption of veteran cop Frank Rourke (Bill Paxton, Big Love), a charming but crooked, morally ambiguous detective. As the bullets fly and we enter the undercover world with these partners who don’t trust each other, who’s training who?

10:30pm Sunday on Seven.

didn't think this would air on Free To Air, let along this early. can't wait, it shall be interesting.

although it is on a little late.

star of the show Bill Paxton has passed away. although they probably (hopefully) didn't leave it on a cliffhanger.

its probably better off being a one off series, probably better off that way.

he had completed all 13 episodes, it didn't rate to well in the US so it wouldn't have been renewed anyway.
