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.
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.
