“Training Day” the Series

Based on the 2001 film of the same name, CBS’ “Training Day” is taking the story and flipping it in a way that relates more to current events (Unlike the debacle waiting to happen with FOX’s “Shots Fired”). Kyle Craig (Justin Cornwell), a rookie cop, is partnered with corrupt Det. Frank Rourke (Bill Paxton) on his first day with LAPD’s Special Investigation Section. Sounds the same as the movie I know but the difference is there and it’s a big one. The people behind “Training Day” decided to switch the races of the two main characters making the corrupt cop white and the rookie black. Not going to lie the decision to switch the race was a great change for the EP’s to make. With scenes like jumping out a window to catch a falling baby one can only hope that this show won’t be short lived like past movie tv adaptations (here’s looking at you Limitless, Rush Hour, Uncle Buck, and Minority Report). Check out the Trailer below and tell me what you think. Need it or leave it?
