CBC’s popular show Blue Bloods is not just about crime and cops. It is more than that. It has the bonding of the Reagen men and family virtues. How in the world of cops, family ties get lost somewhere. Blue Bloods proves to be otherwise in the lot.
A family that suppers together spends their heartfelt moments together. Blue Bloods may have murder mysteries and crime thrillers at the beginning of the show. But by the end of the show, it has a genuine family ethic. It consists of an ethic that does not get followed in today’s time. A family virtue that many families have given up. A family trait that is long gone and never found. An ethic called – dining together.
In Blue Bloods, every family member waits for the last member to arrive at the supper table. It is one of the virtues that makes Blue Bloods unforgettable.
The next point would be how work never leaves the family. Or how the family never gives up on work. Most of the cases get interlinked in this popular series. A rowdy detective needs his Police Commissioner- father. An adamant DA needs her Police Commissioner– father to function well. At times, the NYPD Sergeant needs his DA sister’s support in cases. The list is long, and the day is short.
Blue Bloods has Reaganism (cast of Blue Bloods – Raegans) following in its veins. No Reagan ever gets ignored, thrashed, or insulted in the presence of another Raegan. The family ethics and virtues are so righteous and grounded that you cannot forget to imbibe them in your family.
There are so many unforgettable moments in Blue Bloods. Each Reagan gives more importance to the victim of the crime than to the criminal. Criminals get thrashed, no doubt about that. But the victims are the ones who genuinely suffer. So, the Reagans make sure that the victims do not feel victimized. Reagans do not just belong to the Police clan. They are also part-time and unpaid psychotherapists. They help victims come out of Post-traumatic stress disorders. And, they bolster the suicide-committing people by teaching them the importance of life.
Blue Bloods is more about how life has to be, more than what life can be. The Reagans spend most of their lives serving the common public. It is only on Sundays that they give time to their families.
Blue Bloods has a huge star cast. Right from Tom Selleck, Bridget Moynahan, Donnie Wahlberg, Will Estes, Len Cariou, Amy Carison, Sami Gayle, Vanessa Ray, Marisa Ramirez, Tony, and Andrew Terraciano, Steve Schirripa, Jennifer Esposito, Abigail Hawk, Robert Clohessy to Gregory Jbara.
They are all pumped up with NYPD energy like they were cops of New York City. Each character gets one hundred percent justice on the part of portrayal. These celebrities have had their share of stardom in the past, but Blue Bloods gives them immense celebrity stardom.
Blue Bloods is not just about family. But it is also about the importance of being righteous, conscientious, and law-abiding citizens of the world.
