BLUE BLOODS: THE SIXTH SEASON REVIEWED
“Blue Bloods” is one of those shows I love to hate. Honestly, the show represents an angry old man’s vision of the legal system. Cops are good, the legal side needs to be strong armed and family means more than civil rights. This year finds Danny Reagan pushed to the limit again. Can dear old Police Chief dad protect him? Also, what of the woman that turned a cold shoulder to Tom Brady’s love? Would she no longer be able to practice law and be banned from America? These questions and more dotted through my brain during this year.
High Pitch Erik even shows up at the end of the season. If that’s not a mark of quality, I don’t know what is. Hell, it’s more time than Ronnie the Limo Driver got on Limitless. Back to the show, my problems continue this year. Outside of the gross simplification of law enforcement in a modern society, the show wants you to buy the Reagans as the ultimate authority on everything. Police Chief Magnum PI controls the NYPD, NYC and his family from his Sunday family dinners. Everything that matters ends and begins there.
The family has a gross overreach into every department that almost appears Tweedian. But, no one cares. Why? Well, the episodes are targeted to slam minority groups in a way that is right, but avoids the trickier issues. It’s not enough to arrest the left-wingers and minorities…the Reagans have to teach them a lesson. Honestly, the only reason this show doesn’t do Star Wars numbers with old people is because it comes on too late on Fridays. That being said, if I had to have a guilty pleasure…this might be it. That being said, I hate the concept of a guilty pleasure.
