TOP 500 REVIEWERon December 11, 2012
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.
