Goofs

Most of the police cars used in Blue Bloods are replicas, bearing the obvious wrong font for the 'NYPD' lettering on the side, having blue lights and bearing the modified NYPD logo that's also worn on the replica uniforms. But in several episodes you can see the replica cars mixed with real-life NYPD police cars. Most of the time the precinct number on the real-life cars are not shown, since the NYPD doesn't allow real-life precinct numbers being used in TV shows. See more »

Doing what America does best
5 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

I enjoyed the first few episodes of this series, and settled down to follow the ever more complicated story lines that must surely follow.

Then it happened. The capacity for American values to transcend reality.

What was first presented as a 'Godfather' like family gathering at the dinner table, (a useful narrative mechanism) was turned into a moral debate for the entire American nation. This is not an entirely bad thing if delivered with a balanced approach, but with the introduction of terrorism... the series plummeted into maudlin self absorption.

On a historical note... the death toll on 911 was horrific, but it was minor compared to other catastrophes around the world. From Bhopal back to the blitz visited on Britain during ww2, atrocities exceed the human cost of 911 with numbing regularity. I could go on! Therein lays the problem with this series, and indeed several other expressions of American culture. The capacity for American values to transcend reality comes with the mawkish display of citizens freely expressing their violent tendencies in the name of 'natural justice', while at the same time weeping into their cup of powerless victims.

I understand that this may work in the home market... but outside of the world of 'Mom' and apple pie... the fake manipulation is hard to take.

This is a major disappointment to me, since the programme is well made and well cast. It is also well written... I just wish it had been better conceived, and not so driven to be self serving towards a powerful country, playing victim in a world of people more entitled to that unwelcome description.
