February 16: Blue Bloods on CBS
I love crime shows! Started with Law & Order, CSI, Criminal Minds (still my absolute favorite), Flashpoint and the latest I’m hooked on to is Blue Bloods. Blue Bloods is a police drama surrounding the lives of the Reagans who are all in law enforcement (Tom Selleck, Police Commissioner, Len Cariou, former Police Commissioner, Donnie Wahlberg, First Grade Detective, Bridget Moynahan, Assistant District Attorney, and Will Estes, Harvard Lawyer turned Cop). The show almost always deals with a moral vs practical issue and has an underlying religious tone with regular Sunday dinners where saying grace is taken seriously. The importance of this aspect in the show helps the viewer understand the characters’ principals and struggles more authentically. It helps us relate to the characters. It’s a really smart show.
Admittedly, it is not a new show (now in it’s 6th season), but I have a habit of giving shows a try only after they’ve been watched and loved by millions over several seasons. So, possibly a little behind on the recommendation, but for anyone else who resists TV shows when they first come out, give this a watch. It’s smart, different from the other cops shows, therefore, it won’t conflict with whatever show you’re already addicted to in the same genre, and best of all, the cast is brilliant (both in terms of acting and looks)!
Blue Bloods airs on Fridays, 10:00pm Eastern on CBS. It is also available on streaming on Hulu.
