I loved the original "Academy" series, on the Fox Reality Channel, which followed a class going through the Los Angeles County Sheriff's academy. It was very well done, and showed the rigors of what cadets had to go through.
I've not seen this new version yet. I'm DVR'ing the first three episodes tomorrow (11/7) to get caught up.
Anybody seen this yet? I wonder if they use the fire training facility that's just off of Orangewood Avenue, across the street from Angel Stadium.
