OK, when did Rookie Blue get so good?!
ABC's Canadian cop show returned last night and we gotta say, this thing deserves more than a summer fill-in slot. It's like Grey's with a badge and less Shonda-isms.
For its third-season premiere, the series — about recent police-academy graduates cracking crimes and yeah, hooking up — trotted out William Shatner for a guest spot as a drunk driver who winds up leading the 15 Division to a twisted kidnapping case.

Oh, and the closing scene with his character's recently recovered granddaughter was a total eye-wetter. We are not ashamed to admit that.
