Format: DVD
The CBS crime drama "Blue Bloods", about a family of New York City policemen, returns for a superb third season in 2012-2013. A strong cast is headed by Tom Selleck as Frank Reagan, New York City Police Commissioner and head of the Reagan family, which includes his father (Len Cariou), a retired police commissioner; his daughter Erin (Bridget Moynihan), a hard-charging deputy district attorney; son Danny (Donnie Wahlberg), a highly effective but rules-bending detective; and youngest son Jamie (Will Estes), a new beat cop finding his way on the force.

A great strength of the show is its nice balance of crime-of-the-week police procedural and extended family drama. Issues at work seem to find their way home to the Reagan Sunday family dinner table, where Frank is often called upon to referee family disputes, whether on the outing privileges of a teenage granddaughter or breaking up competition between Erin and Danny over the handling of a case. A second great strength of the show is its willingness to portray honestly the difficult issues that require tough choices out of one or more family members. Danny's wife often fears for his life, while Frank sweats out his youngest son's undercover duties and his grandaughter's dates. In one episode, Frank's father is brutally mugged at an ATM; son Jamie earns the wrath of his police commissioner father for his rough handling of the suspected thief. One sad change this season was the abrupt departure of Jennifer Esposito as Danny's partner Jackie Curatola; Danny will work with a number of possible successors.

"Blue Bloods" is highly recommended to its fans as a solid, uniquely family-oriented police procedural.

I'm amazed that the story lines, and characters can be so true-to-life, current, and relevant without bombarding the audience with scantily-clad actors, and soft porn. Rather than trying push the censorship envelope with shocking language, over-the-top violence, or nudity, this show strives for excellence in character development, dialogue, and interpersonal communication, while, at the same time presenting action-filled, intriguing, "ripped from the headlines" police and city politics stories set in New York City. Well-written, superbly acted, the show comes to life around one family in service to that city. The family is like a character all in itself --and the best part, is that "family" always wins. I, personally, applaud the photography director who HOLDS THE CAMERA STILL. It's one show I don't get motion sick watching as the cameras swing wildly, and bounce around. TV is a visual medium; I enjoy being able to SEE this outstanding show.

I love the show. The best is the family, how close they are. The family meals are very special and unfortunately becoming few and far between. So sad. I know cases don't get solved as quickly as they do on the show but, come on, do you think CSI investigations run as smoothly as depicted. It's TV. But, the family. Four generations. The young learning by WATCHING the old. Seeing how they interact, how they can argue but love is never in question. The young learning from the old.

Blue Bloods is terrific! I love the suspenseful story lines. Donnie Wahlberg and Lou Cariou are particularly wonderful as well as the young actress who plays Bridgette Moynihan's daughter. Really, all the actors are great but the ones I mentioned above stand out for me. The series never gets boring and the family dinner scenes are terrific. All this praise from an old time liberal!

This is, perhaps, the single most intelligent and humane show on TV.
There has not been one as ethically aware since Homicide: Life on the
Streets closed after its seventh season. The crucial importance of the
family unit—flawed and incomplete as it might be—is central to the lives
of the characters. Without preaching, the show underscores the critical
role of fathers in the home; and the invaluable role male authority plays
when it is centered in sensitivity to issues of right and wrong.

In many respects, this is a counter-cultural series. May it stay that way.

Great characters, fantastic story telling, moving. All that TV should be but is often not. Not to be missed. I am just starting season 3 which is running now.

This show is one of the best on TV. The cast truely blend well together and make for a show that shows us what family and traditions are about and how far away from them we have become as a nation.

This show keeps getting better and better. I love the dinner table scenes. It makes the show a little less dark (which happens more frequently on procedurals lately).
