BLUE BLOODS: BEST EVER COP SHOW?

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.

Will There be Censorship for Netflix, Amazon And Other OTT Platforms?

The most well-known platform Netflix renowned across the globe presently fears India’s controversy regarding hurting religious sentiments, instigating violence, against regional, national conflicts, child pornography as per the censorships of Courts of India. As an intention, it has started omitting certain objectionable scenes that violate this rule of the nation.

Is Netflix on the right track? What do you understand about the decision of Netflix?

This step is not just taken by Netflix but other OTT platforms as well. While streaming the movie videos in OTT platforms like Netflix and Hotstar it is seen that the copyrights rule of the movies is respected.

However, in 2018, Netflix has also omitted certain climax scenes of India’s controversial region known as Kashmir, in one of the premier Hollywood movies are known as the Mission Impossible Rollout. This version is given by a media news agency known as the Medianama.

Many argue that this act on the part of the Court of India’s censorship decision to restrict freedom of speech and democracy is objectionable. It is also believed by the audience that the part of OTT platforms to obey this law not only in National movies but also in Global premiers is biased. Many believe that it is aimed to restrict creativity in the field of cinema. However, the truth behind the Court’s decision and the OTT platforms like Netflix, Hotstar, Amazon Prime, etc’s intention is not to spread wrong messages that represent partial truths about the global community.

Netflix, in the olden days, had sole censorship on Indian movies like Angry Indian Goddesses and Udta Punjab.

Amazon Prime Video has monitored and excised power over the censorship rules on Indian movies. This might upset the global community but it is for the welfare of the society as it can be regarded as a means to avoid racial and religious inflammatory speeches leading to unrest in India as well as globally.

Fostering Film Creation Community

However often scenes, when omitted by the OTT platforms, lead to distortion in the meaning of the film story. An initiative on the part of the filmmakers should be taken that they don’t create objectionable content or dialogue both in Indian and Hollywood movies that disregard the harmony in the society. This would encourage filmmakers to come out both in Indian and Hollywood movies with exceptional stories that give greater rhetoric of the global community.

World war 2 was followed by a transformation in the Hollywood industry from the silent movie era to newsreels and commercial movies. These movies however had deeper social messages of injustice, social upheavals, and exploitation. It also highlighted the class conflicts in relation to poverty.

Today’s Hollywood view features in comparison to the 1930s.

Contemporary movies consist of films that contain messages about political power play like that of fascism, violence, insecurity, black money. However in reality what the film critic wants to say is that there have been extreme times of oppression that had not been premiered that which is being premiered today.

However, today movies premiere the corruption and black money which has reduced rate in comparison to the times of the war thereby creating doubt in regard to development in the minds of the audience. However, this particular film talks about how creativity in the Hollywood industry has evolved over the years. These kinds of films have been censored. These films are based on the French cinematography method of film making. These Contemporary films are postmodern movies that talk about deeper symbols and meanings that exist in society. However, with evolving times and moral values censorship in such films is an exploitation of the freedom of speech and expression of the real issues plaguing the world.

Classic Hollywood Movies significance 

“Gone with the wind”, which was a classic novel based film is being censored in contemporary times. This is in context to the recent racial prejudices in regard to black lives matter. It also glorifies the racial related slavery views It was banned by Amazon.

Lisa Nesselson also talks about how the lobby system worked in the Hollywood studios since the times of the 1930s.

Hence the Hollywood industry has really evolved over the years.

Despite the progress in the Hollywood film industry, classical Hollywood movies cease to die because of the essence of the story in black and white movies and romanticism.
