TV show description:
This drama is about a multi-generational family who are dedicated to New York City law enforcement.

New York City’s Police Commissioner, Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck), is the head of both the police force and the Reagan family. He runs his department as diplomatically as he runs his family, even when dealing with the politics. Those same politics plagued his unapologetically bold father, Henry (Len Cariou), during his stint as Chief.

A widowed father of three boys and a girl, Frank’s essentially a blue-collar guy who’s worked his way up through the ranks. It hasn’t been an easy journey, particularly because he lost his eldest son in the line of duty.

Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) is the oldest surviving Reagan son and a seasoned detective. He’s married, the father of two kids, and a hot-tempered Iraqi War vet who occasionally uses dubious tactics to solve cases.

The sole woman in the Reagan family is Erin Reagan Boyle (Bridget Moynahan). She’s a New York Assistant District Attorney and a newly single parent of a teenage daughter. She also serves as the legal compass for her siblings and father. It was her mother’s wish that she and her younger brother stay in law enforcement but off the police force. She and Danny have each other’s backs but know how to push each other’s buttons too.

Jamie (Will Estes) is the youngest Reagan, fresh out of Harvard Law and the family’s “golden boy.” Unable to deny the family tradition, Jamie decided to give up a lucrative future in law and is now a rookie cop, much to the chagrin of his fiancee. Things become extra complicated when he’s asked to become part of a clandestine police investigation that the rest of the family knows nothing about — something that could impact the family’s legacy forever.

No doubt, Blue Bloods is a quality show and will likely play on for years to come. I would like to see the “family dinner gathering” every Sunday take on (in other words) invite some of the less fortunate to their Sunday feast. My mouth waters every time I see that extravagant food on the table knowing I’m unable to have any part of it because I’m not as fortunate as the Reagans. I would also like to see less emphasis placed upon religion (and yes, I know the Reagans are Irish Catholics), as several of its episodes focus on Catholic priests who have an alcohol or sexual identity issue. This is supposed to be a police drama, not a documentary on sexual orientation or religion.

Well done!! Kudos to all for giving us great stories, believable people, and something to think about. The discussions around the Reagan dinner table remind me of the debates we had growing up. And the ‘little ones’ were also banned to the kitchen table when the ‘grown up’ talk got a bit too hot. During a time in our history when cops are put in a hazy goldfish bowl, this series shines light in to their most difficult lives. As we only discovered the show on our new Roku, we look forward to catching the series on CBS.

Excellent. Love Tom Selleck in anything he plays a part in (still looking handsome as ever).
The rest of the cast are great as well!
My husband and I love it and hope it will continue for a long time.
Woo-hoo! Thank you.
