Not trying to reinvent the wheel or even primetime TV, Blue Bloods has become very good at what it promises and delivers on that and commonly more.

    The character Linda being removed kills the majority of the family aspect of the show unfortunately. The season seemed rather middling, got on the nose at times. Episode 8 was blunt - race realist former cop moves into an area to fight gangs, episode pushed that it had a racial angle though always denied by the character it was accepted as truth. Even had instances of that group being told to leave as the gangs seemed to own the neighborhood, something the cops let slide. Eventually it ended in all of them dying in a shootout after the police sat on evidence of the prior break-in, and pulling protection they had placed after the ACLU rightly pointed out they should not have made the association to the group after the initial racists arrest. I would have let that slide, but the following episode ended in an ethical defense of a convicted pedophile. Need to smooth the writing out, get the characters back to their roots. Shouldn't have killed off Linda but now that you have, got to replace that hole it leaves with a wife or girlfriends family angle.

    A consistently well-written and extremely well-Acted family/police drama. It's a throw-back to the way family dramas used to be made, with a modern twist.

    Blue Bloods season 8 is the worst decision Tom Sellock ever made. The show once had great potential but then shit hit the fan and everything went to the slums. The story plot is nothing more than grasping at straws and begging for an audience to tune in. Which is a shame as SOME of the actors actually once had talent. The cheap one liners, crappy attempts for drama, orange make up and CHEESEY speeches made by Sellock make me want to punch the old man in the face. The characters are underdeveloped and the Danny's (Donnie Walhberg) sons resemble baby ogres. I don't hate this show and I hate the story! It's shits.
