More "Law & Order" than "The Wire",
This review is from: Blue Bloods - Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I did enjoy watching this series but then I still enjoy "Law & Order". It isn't as good as "The Wire" or "The Shield". It tends to proceed episode by episode with not much in the way of an over-arching plot. There is one about the "Blue Templers" but I thought it rather weak. Maybe it's because the main characters are such good guys and bad are more interesting that this series doesn't catch my imagination as much. Still, I admire the emphasis on a strong family life and a practised faith that is simply there in the series without anyone making a big deal about it. I don't think the BBC would make something like this. The photography of New York City in the programme is great and is pleasure to watch.
