Tv Season Info

This New York crime drama focuses on a multigenerational family of cops, which includes the city's police commissioner, his two sons and his retired father. Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) stars as the NYPD police commissioner, a role once held by his father, Henry (Len Cariou). Frank's eldest son Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) is an Iraq War vet and a detective on the force, daughter Erin (Bridget Moynahan) is an assistant DA, and younger son Jamie (Will Estes) is a Harvard alum who just became a beat cop. In the premiere series, the Reagan family deal with the recent loss of another son, Joe, who was killed in the line of duty. Along the way, they tackle many crime situations, often with the help of Jamie's partner, Sgt. Anthony Renzulli (Nick Turturro).

Critic Reviews for Blue Bloods Season 1

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (17)

The best thing about "Blue Bloods," besides Selleck, is Wahlberg, who shifts between being empathetic and temperamental without any crunching of gears.

Jan 25, 2019 | Full Review…

The Green/Burgess team is one of TV's best and we hope they'll make this show as sharp and compelling as it should be.

Sep 24, 2010 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
Top Critic

If not for the narrative clunkiness, "Blue Bloods'' has the potential to be a juicy multigenerational family drama.

Sep 24, 2010 | Full Review…

The best new cop drama of a TV season that has more police than a presidential motorcade.

Sep 24, 2010 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

What I dug about Blue Bloods was the fact that on one hand it's a family drama, but on the other it's a crime drama. I wasn't sure how well those two things would mix, but they did it very well.

Jan 25, 2019 | Full Review…

So, is Blue Bloods good enough? For the most part, yes. While certainly not the best procedural out there, it's better than the lions share, and certainly the best on CBS at the moment.

Jan 25, 2019 | Full Review…

While some of these themes are decidedly mature, the overall show is positive, insightful, and entertaining.

Jan 25, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

As long as the writers continue to provide the characters with enough interesting choices, the show should become a solid hit for CBS.

Jan 25, 2019 | Full Review…

"Blue Bloods" excels through its high-tone production values...and standout performances from Selleck and Wahlberg, whose moral ambiguity and thinly veiled powder-keg fury...promises to fuel the series through a gripping first season.

Mar 29, 2019 | Full Review…

This feels different than what you expect on other shows of this sort, and that should be encouraged. I can't recommend Bloods right now, though.

Audience Reviews for Blue Bloods: Season 1

  • Sep 07, 2019
    I loved this show!!! At least until now. The last one I watched has made me decide not to watch it. I see no need for the writers of the script to all of a sudden interject so many bad language and suggestively crude innuendos that ruin such a good show like this. The borderline language says to me you are testing the waters for more crude talk and even worse type suggestive scenes. I enjoy watching shows that show a more professional and respectful dialog. It looks to me like this one is heading down the wrong path.
  • May 30, 2019
    I love everything about this show. The family connections (including the Sunday family dinners and the closeness of the family despite the loss of several family members off-screen before the series even starts), Donnie Wahlberg's willingness to do what he has to do to catch the bad guys, Tom Selleck's quite, almost-gruff class act, and Will Estes' almost-an-attorney-but-decided-to-be-a-cop insecurity. Each episode is good and I like how the family stories move from episode to episode. I look forward to the cozy house scenes and the interaction between Tom Selleck and his dad and kids.
  • May 03, 2019
    One of my favorite shows ! The way the viewer is kept enterntained with how all the family members seems to work on their own cases, and try to add as much personal imput as they can is fascinating. Also, the acting is very much realistic and we could feel the deep connection lying between the characters. Pretty damn good, if you ask me
  • Jul 19, 2017
    “That’s the funny thing about decisions. You don’t seem to have to talk yourself into the right ones.”
  • Jul 17, 2017
    Easy to watch with good characters.
  • Oct 03, 2015
    Meh....need more Selleck and less marginal actors.
  • Sep 03, 2015
    Just finished season 1. It would have gotten 5 stars, except for the finale was was one of the worst ever! They built up all this tension through out the season with some awesome standalone episodes and then blow it tying everything together. Hopefully that's not the end of the Blue Templar, if so, what a waste of a good idea. Otherwise, we're definitely going to continue watching, but might have to take a break with all the DC shows starting up soon.
