Television today is packed full of action and mind-numbing, hero worshiping shows. Framed as good vs evil, often with mind-numbing violence, they are for the most part entertaining level only. Blue Bloods, however, seems to take a little different approach. It has good vs evil, but the story is equally infused with ethical issues, both personal and police, with family interaction, sometimes serious, but worked out through reason and compromise.
One of the best shows on TV and has a fabulous cast and great writers. Blue Bloods deals with many very real issues in all aspects of life in addition to crime. It really has an all-star cast and each Reagan family member has their own distinctive personality. The family means gatherings are more reflective of dinnertime in past decades which is very comforting to watch.
BLUE BLOODS: THE CAST
Tom Selleck is an awesome actor and plays his part perfectly. The other cast is on the perfect point of acting and the writing is consistently better than most of the shows.
MORE ON THE DRAMA
With over ten seasons, all the episodes are loveable. There are some episodes filled with good learning, teaching lessons, a clean and is family orientated. It’s one of the delightful cop show. The family table scenes and values, traditions are so emotional and pure. Regarding the material of this show, the family is depicted as being in law enforcement when there are two cops and one lawyer. The father is held at the position of the commissioner. Overall, great performances from the cast and great storytelling.
Blue blood is an example of worthwhile programming, in that it addresses both ethnical and political aspects and struggles members of law enforcement face, with the personal; implications of individual and collective police actions, as well as, those of the district attorney’s office.
It is refreshing that the writers do not feel it necessary to exercise overt profanity or explicit nudity or sexual situations in their scripts, which renders this a family-friendly show. If you‘re looking for a binge-worthy series, Blue Blood is for you!
SOME CRITICS TO OUTLOOK
With the greatness in the show, there is a disappointment to be seen. The show totally eliminated any credit to the mother of the family. The storyline dealt with finding a way to get the officers to be more healthy so they were safer in their jobs. The storyline berated the head of the police union for having bariatric surgery some years before and called it” the easy way out”, not willing to give it the sweat and hard work to lose weight, etc.
