While I still enjoy the show, I have to admit it usually centers more on Danny than anyone else. That's not necessarily a bad thing for me, as I like Wahlberg and the Danny character. Never hurts to see Bridget Moynahan either! As a nit picker, I can get annoyed by obvious stupid procedures - like yelling "hey stop, police" at a felon who is 1/2 a block away and can now run through traffic. But, any show has those and on the whole I like this one.

And I hope they get a permanent partner for Danny so the chemistry between the two can start. While I think the new woman is pretty good, there's no chemistry between she and Danny.
More to the point, the writers need to understand that Danny is by nature Politically Incorrect. He does things that are borderline or even over the line, and gets called for it from his brother/sister/father/boss/wife/partner. He is NEVER PC, whether he has been to Anger Management or not.
Having his sister agonizing over whether a bad guy had his rights trampled on last night's episode was also utterly wrong. She needs to be greasing the skids in front of the suspects, getting them the extra 25-to-life for the third strike, not wringing her hands over anybody's rights except the crime victims. And WHAT THE HECK is it with this show that they have to show so many corrupt female ADA's?
This one is swirling around the drain for me. I'll leave the Season Pass on the TiVo, but unless things improve rapidly, including having JUSTICE triumph over being PC, the flush is happening.

I agree the over the top PC Danny reaction to the whole Muslim theme was out of character. And don't go there with the moral equivalency of the albeit murdering Catholic Dad to the culturally acceptable Honor Killings was too much. The Church is always a big target for Hollywood and some of its behavior deserves the criticism, but God forbid that shows run strong themes deeply critical of those who will blow you up for attacking their beliefs.
Social commentary has always been part of BB and sometimes they've had the courage to take some non-PC shots, but this season continues to be a train wreck.
He actually is playing a latter day Teddy. Theodore Roosevelt was the New York City Police Commissioner in 1895....
I like the first two so far. Seems to be a lot closer to seasons 1 and 2. Jamie's new partner could bring an interesting dynamic to the show. I really liked Frank's reaction to the LT's wife when he visited his house to bust his chops for missing so much work.
