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.

While I was never a fan of Magnum PI I like the Jesse Stone movies and Selleck really has the wise trustworthy character down pat in BB. And I like the show, too.

Episode 2 > Episode 1. Good start to the new season. Love most of the characters, even though they're supposed to be JETS fans.

Agreed that this is getting back to the feeling of Season 1. Really liked what I've seen so far this season, and glad that the episodes haven't been all about Danny. They've had a good mix that shows a complete family portrait in each episode.

I agree that Blue Bloods has returned to form this season. In this week's show, I particularly enjoyed the relationship that developed between Danny and the movie star who was riding with him, doing research on an upcoming film. I also found interesting Frank's uncharacteristic angst over his lack of connection with his troops and what he did about it. This was good stuff!

I like the back & forth between the family members. Feel like it adds a deal of realism to the series.

i like that in almost every home scene when discussing a problem they're all downing a healthy pour of whiskey. Makes me thirsty.
post #307 of 347
Apple juice or flat ginger ale is what's generally used, but I hear ya. I've found myself opening a bottle of wine just because it looked SOOO good in the dinner scene.

You might already know this, but there are strategically-placed wastebaskets around the "family dinner" table for actors to spit out the food after a take. Selleck said (IIRC), even though the food gets replenished, it can get cold, but Wahlberg tends to actually eat it all and rarely uses the wastebasket.

I love it, a house full of Irish cops and everyone's drinking in every scene.......no stereotypes there biggrin.gif
Still one of the shows I most look forward to.

I have always thought that being Irish was a requirement to join AA

Another excellent episode on Friday.
post #312 of 347
And another fine episode THIS Friday too. Show is on a roll this year in sharp contrast to the poor start last season. The dinner scenes are often gold. Loved the look the Commish (Frank) got from the DA daughter and her spawn when he recounted his testimony as a patrolman. I can testify truthfully that daughters are known to give their Dads that look.

The start to last season was a disaster, but they finished on a good note. They are carrying that into this season. Much more like seasons 1 and 2, especially season 1.

Yes, but very sad.

I thought it was pretty good and have finally gotten over the fact that every important case in NYPD luckily falls into the lap of the 3 Reagans (no family story otherwise, to be sure).  The downer for me was the ridiculous way in which they threatened the career of the female partner over the cell phone.  No way on God's green Earth that would have unfolded like that.  It would have been so simple to write something much closer to reality than that cell phone incident.  Overall though, pretty good and I wonder how big a role Bebe Neuwirth will have and if the romantic side will be developed as they subtly implied.

Ugh. I for one hope that Frank has SOME standards.

Why would you have to get over the fact that the Reagan family is so much a part of the show? That's the whole premise of the series. I can't imagine my wife watching Modern Family and it's about another group of people, the Sopranos highlighting another crime family, or Breaking Bad only occasionally featuring Walter White.

As for the cell phone, I think the whole idea was that if Officer Janko lied about something that insignificant, then she would also be more likely to lie about something bigger. The point was to prove it wasn't a lie, just an inaccurate observation under stress. I thought it was a pretty good scenario.

I also like Bebe Neuwirth... no raving beauty but a darned good actress.

I think you misunderstood Flint's comment. I too have had to "suspend belief" that every single case of importance just happens to land in either Danny's or Jaime's lap, to the complete exclusion of what must be a fine group of detectives and officers in the remaining force. Of course, if it didn't, then you wouldn't have a show. But rarely do we see Frank taking on an internal issue involved other cops not named Reagan. I would like to see the writers branch out a bit to have the ADA sister involved in a case with other NYPD officers, and have Jaime have a plot line that doesn't involve the rest of the family. You can still tie things together at the dinner table. . .

Yes he did, you didn't. 

 

Also, IMO, the cell phone setup remains dumb and would never happen as shown and a much easier example could have been written to present the point they wanted.

Yep!!

This week's episode was again superior. All 3 story arcs were interesting. My wife especially likes the scenes with the youngest son, Jaimie, the police officer.
post #323 of 347
Every episode have been good ones.

Jamie used to be one of my least favorite characters on the show. He's becoming one of my favorites now.
post #324 of 347
Agreed. I think BB is one of the best shows on TV.

BB, AKA the Danny show :D

With such a large number of good actors I'd like it if they gave some of the other actors the scene time they give Donnie Wahlberg. Not that I don't think DW is a great actor, just spread the screen time around.

And I agree, BB is one of my favorite dramas on TV.

Were liquor ads permitted this would be a favorite show for sponsors with all the weekly product placement. tongue.gif

It seemed (to me) that in this most recent episode, Jaimie's character seems to be maturing. In the scene(s) where he, and his partner, were locking up the teenage girl, and then sitting in their car (when the girl escapes), Jaimie appeared to be (finally) a "senior" partner in the way he acted and in his dialog. Did it seem like that to anybody else? I'm glad to see they are "maturing" him, instead of having him seem to always be a "rookie" in actions/dialog.

I noticed that also. In fact, I thought he may have gone a little over the top in his "maturity" until it finally was revealed at the end of the show that he was right all along.
