LOVE AND LOYALTY. The Reagan family follows every lead to the end in the eighth thrilling season of Blue Bloods, starring Tom Selleck and Donnie Wahlberg. The heat is on as Frank (Selleck) clashes with the new mayor of New York City and defends the NYPD from a series of public scandals. Oldest Son Danny (Wahlberg) is forced to cut a deal with his imprisoned archenemy while his brother Jamie (Will Estes) works to protect the city s defenseless victims. At the same time, their D.A. sister Erin (Bridget Moynahan) reopens a number of old cases and faces off with her ex-husband. Guest starring Whoopi Goldberg, Ernie Hudson, Mimi Rogers and Lorraine Bracco, this collection includes all 22 episodes and special features. Even when facing the city s worst, this family always has each other s backs.
There isn’t another series on television that takes such an honest look at the law enforcement and legal challenges our society faces with as balanced an approach. It leans neither left or right, but attempts to objectively tackle issues that currently divide many in our country. The writers find common ground and OBJECTIVELY examine multiple sides of an issue. The stories portray difficult situations with compassion and ultimately offer legitimate hope. Add to this a superb cast and CBS offers a series I look forward to viewing each week. “Blue Bloods” and “This Is Us” are the only two series I actually purchase so I don’t ever miss an episode … though if you’re willing to wait until post season, Blue Bloods is offered to Amazon Prime subscribers free of charge. That means if you haven’t been aware of this great series, you can binge watch the first 7 seasons free!
Blue Bloods is one of the only dramatic prime time series actually shot on location on the streets of New York City. Because of production costs and the challenge every long-running series faces with cast salaries running higher each season, I fear this great series my be into it’s final season. I hope that isn’t the case, because no other series offers what Blue Bloods gives us each week with such great production value and such solid talent from the writers and actors. It’s a show that demonstrates integrity is not dead. That right and wrong are real issues, but not black and white issues. That there is plenty of room for compassion and forward thinking regarding issues of morality and protecting society … in fact they are essential.
I’ve worked in the television industry my entire career and most people don’t realize how hard these actors work to sustain a one-hour drama each week for 8 seasons. Tom Selleck, what you and your fellow cast members, and the writers, are contributing is a gift. I hope you know how much so many of us appreciate the way Blue Bloods helps us understand multiple sides of difficult issues and helps bring together people of diverse backgrounds and idealologies … especially at a time when the media and politicians can’t seem to stop attempting to divide us. As a people we all have so much more in common than we have differences. Blue Bloods does a spectular job of honoring and respecting different points of view while simultaneously championing the need for integrity and true justice in our modern American society. Best of all, it is great storytelling and there isn’t a better crime & law enforcement drama on television today than Blue Bloods. Tom and Donny and Bridget and Will, please give us at least one more season! Or better yet, make it 10 total!!! Because when you leave there will be a void that can not be filled. Yours is truly a synergestic effort from cast and crew and writers. You have accomplished what few series have ever been able to do: tell great stories that help change the lives of those who watch for the better and help us have a greater understanding and empathy for our neighbors in this increasingly diverse melting pot we call the UNITED States of America. I believe you are making a far greater difference than you realize!
