Training Day was a crime drama television series that premiered on CBS in 2017. Loosely based on the 2001 movie of the same name, the show follows the story of two Los Angeles Police Department officers, one of whom is a veteran cop while the other is a rookie assigned to keep an eye on his senior partner.

The veteran cop, Frank Rourke, played by Bill Paxton, is a morally ambiguous character who is well-respected in the LAPD but has a troubled past. The rookie cop, Kyle Craig, played by Justin Cornwell, is a by-the-book officer who has recently lost his father, also an LAPD officer, in a shootout. The show explores the complex relationship between these two characters as they work together on a series of cases ranging from drug busts to homicide investigations.

In addition to Paxton and Cornwell, the show also features Katrina Law as Detective Rebecca Lee, a member of the LAPD's Special Investigation Section (SIS) who frequently crosses paths with Rourke and Craig. Law's character adds an interesting dynamic to the show as she is the only female officer in the SIS and frequently faces discrimination from her male colleagues.

Throughout the series, Training Day tackles themes of police corruption, morality and loyalty as Rourke and Craig navigate their way through the dangerous world of law enforcement in Los Angeles. The show also features a number of supporting characters, including Rourke's ex-partner who is now a criminal, and Craig's fellow rookie officers who are envious of his assignment to work with Rourke.

One of the most compelling aspects of Training Day is the relationship between Rourke and Craig. While Rourke initially appears to be a mentor figure to Craig, it quickly becomes apparent that their relationship is more complex than that. Rourke frequently tests Craig's loyalty and pushes him to bend the rules in order to get results. As a result, Craig is forced to confront his own morality and make difficult decisions about what kind of police officer he wants to be.

Despite positive reviews for its performances, Training Day was subject to criticism for its pervasive violence and portrayal of police brutality, leading to its abrupt cancellation after just one season. Nevertheless, the show's exploration of complex moral and ethical issues within the police force remains a compelling and relevant subject matter.

In conclusion, Training Day is a gripping crime drama that showcases powerful performances from its lead actors while exploring themes of police corruption, loyalty and morality. While the show's violence and portrayal of police brutality led to its cancellation after just one season, it remains a thought-provoking and relevant series that is well worth watching.

Training Day is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (13 episodes). The series first aired on February 2, 2017.
