ALICE H. REYES: Blue bloods

One of my favorite television shows in America  is “Blue Bloods”, which is about the Reagan family in New York City.
      The show’s cast is led by  Tom Selleck of Magnum P.I. fame and includes Donnie Wahlberg, Bridget Moynihan, Will Estes and Len Carou.
       What initially drew me to the series was the fact that the Reagans are an Irish Catholic family , although religion does not play a large role in the series.
     What struck me was the Sunday family dinners , where the Reagans opened the meal with prayer, and exchanged views, sometimes conflicting, without anger.
      Selleck plays the current Police Commissioner, son of a former Police Commissioner. Moynihan is his daughter Erin,a lawyer; Wahlberg is a policed detective and Estes is a Police Sergeant.  
     Every episode is filled with action, suspense, excitement as each member of the Reagan family strives to solve a particular problem.
     The characters in the series are portrayed as persons with human frailties who are motivated  to serve  the people of New York City, come what may.
      The series is appropriately entitled “Blue Bloods” because the Reagans represent the cream of police families,with four generations of Reagans in the service.
      There are many other excellent TV shows on cime and punishment out there, I am sure, but none as unique as “Blue Bloods”.
       Is it  any wonder that I tune in on ION every Wednesday from 11 A.M. to 11 P.M.?
