  • Excerpt: Obviously, “The Rookies” now exists not only as a scripted fictional TV series but as a capsule of ’70s fashions, lingo, and programming sensibilities. Those sensibilities are far removed from the grittier cop shows of modern times. Even though bad guys feature in every episode, they conform to broadcast standards, remaining more menacing in theory than in action.

Veep: Season 1
