Thanks for the link. When I see actors interviewed I expect usually to be turned off by their phoniness. Selleck impressed me, though. Whether that was because Selleck is really smart, really sincere, or both, I can't say but he didn't strike a false note.

Man, I really enjoyed that interview. Tom's my favorite and my wife's (she says she watched Magnum when I traveled a lot because he looks like me. LOL) I'm pleased that BB is due back and that they're not going more procedural.

I can link some of those too . Generally, if they "lower" themselves enough to do radio interviews, they're pretty genuine people. I run across very few pretentious actors and musicians. Most of those don't get a second interview and the one they just did with me probably won't see the light of day.

You can tell we were nervous at the beginning with Selleck. He allayed that just seconds into the interview. I was a big fan. He took time to do MY stupid show. I'm a much bigger fan, now.

Thanks, I enjoyed that! Glad to hear they won't be mixing things up too much next season.

I noticed that Selleck went out of his way to put you guys at ease and was impressed with his articulate charm and low key manner. I am a much bigger Selleck fan now, too.

Still my favorite role of his was a very early one on The Rockford Files when he played a pluperfect rival dectective to Rockford's bumbling near down-and-out dectective. His chisled good looks for that role and his acting skills playing the arrogantly perfect foil even then were terrific. Been a fan ever since as the actor never seems to take himself as seriously as someone that handsome could be led to do. It would be hard to be humble if you looked like Selleck.

It's easy to like Selleck because he doesn't get all wrapped up in the fame game. He realizes he's very lucky to have this success and lifestyle and never forgot how he got there. He's a very down to earth everyman type. It's very easy to relate to him and definitely a guy you'd like to sit down and have a few cold ones with.

Thanks for the interview. Sounds like a genuine guy.

Wow didn't realize the 18-49 numbers were this bad, but for the season it was tied for 69th in that demo. Same as Off the Map, The Defenders, Human Target and Lie to Me....ouch.

But 17th in overall viewers.

Glad to see the Reagan's back on. A good season premiere episode this week.
post #162 of 347
Glad it's off to a good start. Will get to watch two episodes when I get back next week.
post #163 of 347
You can definitely notice some subtle differences between last season and this season. But I'm sure glad the show wasn't changed too much.
post #164 of 347
I really enjoyed this week's Blue Bloods. I thought the intricate story of how Danny came to shoot another cop because the other cop had failed to identify himself was extremely well told. If the show can maintain this level of quality it should be all right.

I did too. Very well acted.

CBS Substitutes Repeats Into Friday's Schedule Against World Series Game 7: http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/201...game-7/108828/.
post #167 of 347
I really enjoyed the most recent episode with the preacher and the alleged racism. I was glad to see a show not make it into a "can't we all get along" storyline and actually tackle a sensitive issue regarding a minority group stirring up trouble to create racial tensions in order make the white cops look bad. Very well done.
post #168 of 347
Yeah, I kept waiting for the bail out moment where they somehow 'save' the supposed villain - but, was glad to see they didn't and that the Commish stood up to the Mayor without compromise. A theme likely to lead to further tensions, I'm sure.
post #169 of 347
I was taken aback that BB which tends to be vanilla would tackle the racial theme and do it so well w/o cop outs. (OK pun intended after I accidentally wrote it) Great interplay with the black mayor character. Much better than the last smarmy mayor.
post #170 of 347
Yes, this recent two episodes are quite solid. The undercover mob infiltration aspect should get quite interesting,....and this last episode with the racial tensions/issues was fantastic. The rapport between The Commish and his PR guy is really getting good, and a nice additional angle. The MLK quote Frank delivered during the "summit" was a good touch. My wife and I were really glad Danny and his wife got to have their own happy ending! My wife thought for sure Danny's wife would see him in front of that hotel with the other gal (confidential informant) he was working with. And the surprising highlight for me was my wife saying aloud "oh yeah", right when Danny's wife explained what she wasn't wearing while dining. I looked at her and she was grinning and giggling,...too funny

Thanks

Better late than never, however I just had the pleasure of listening to this interview,...good stuff. Selleck, truly getting better with age. Seems to be a class act.

Thanks for sharing

Another really good episode this past Friday. Selleck was really strong.

+1

My wife said the same thing,...odd really. Right as she began to speak, explaining what an incredibly perfect role this is for him and how solid his work is, ...I was thinking the exact same thing. Good stuff.

I continue to like it. There is an odd trend though, to keep coming up with nefarious/undercover backstories for Jamie and then seem to drop them or minimize them. First season had the Templars and now the mob, both handled kind of erratically.

You're right. They don't mention it an episode or two, then it comes back again like it did this past week.

There is definitely a strong effort to give equal time to all the main characters this year. Last year was centered a lot around Danny. He's not been the focal point of every episode.
post #176 of 347
Also, as someone mentioned above, so many simultaneous story lines hanging in the balance. And,..it appears a brand new storyline added this past episode; the commissioner's new investigator. It appears as if they may have tabled/concluded the art thief story line for now.

Again, I'm not aware of a more adept cast,...superb TV. Quite enjoyable viewing these film-making quality TV shows. Outstanding quality, high budget production, great camera work and well acted. Story lines are decent, in my opinion. Funny, ...wife and I always chuckle at how Baker,...the PC's assistant, just kicks ass at whatever she's expected to do. Surely, they'll hook up at some point in this series.

Good stuff

Due to about a gabillion reasons, the episodes are not always aired in the order the scripts are written . Gabillion is a technical term referring to a number much larger than 12.

You may be right, and likely are as far as I know. However, every other high budget action/drama whatever genre broadcasts their story with a linear timeline. Why not BlueBloods? They are broadcast in the order in which they're intended to broadcast.

I know you said order of scripts being written,...however continuity is extremely important to this, and most every other show out there with multiple plot lines.

Fwiw;
Just watched a film release on BluRay, .... Rescue Dawn, true story. Anyway, the filmed the entire film in reverse order. They filmed the finale, first, etc. The cast needed to lose a significant amount of weight,...so, they did the entire thing in reverse. They'd slowly put on weight during production, thus appearing to lose weight throughout the timeline of the film.

Very good film, too...btw

Thanks

Rumor has it that the cast will be required to wear (gasp!) Jets gear for an upcoming episode.

Danny & Bridget must be thrilled.

I think Jennifer Esposito does a great job on the show. Yes, I know she is "sultry". But, besides that, I truly think she has a great natural talent. Question about her--is it my imagination, or does she have (for lack of a better term) a "slow" eye? It appears to me, that sometimes her right eye isn't quite looking at the same spot her left eye is. Not trying to be a nit-picker about this nor trying to insult her. I might be completely wrong about this. Just curious.
