CBS-TV: THE BLUEBLOODS

Did anyone see last night's ep of THE BLUEBLOODS? (Friday 2/3/12)

One of the stars of the show (putatively "the best" detective thay have)
AGAIN relinquished reason in favor of hysteria,
by threatening the unarmed bad guy 's life with his pistol drawn,
for an unwarranted search of his body for evidence of a gunshot.

In this circumstance,
one wonders how much of the case remains viable for criminal prosecution ??????????

Another question is whether the Police Commissioner
(when he finds out about what happened) can or will continue
the tenure of this loose cannon that bears his name.
( Of course, as a practical matter, thay r not going to dump one of the stars of the show. )

Did anyone see it? I thawt it was a good ep.

Comments ?????

@OmSigDAVID,
Blue Bloods is one of my favorite shows. The complete cast's acting is outanding . The writing is believable and consistent. I like the story about a family and their real life and the difficulty of police work. It's true to the lives of some police families I've known.

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
That may be,
but "Danny" has overturned the proverbial applecart
in tainting valuable evidence with "the fruit of the poisoned tree".

Arguably, he committed a crime himself
by threatening the life of his nabor,
by brandishing that pistol.

I wonder if the writers have been offering us a hint
that thay r going somewhere with their development
of this trait of his that when the emotional pressure is on,
"Danny" abandons all respect for the law, in preference to brutality.

It might well be that the evolution of their plot will include
some dramatic consequences of this characteristic.

Notably, Tom Selleck's character is a perfectionist
in "by the book" police protocol practice.

@OmSigDAVID,
Yeah I watched it - bits and pieces of it. In any case, I don't take much credance any way as to whether the best detective relinqushed reason or not.

It is a TV show so I realize that typically most of it is crap - in others words it isn't real so the characters will end up doing whatever makes the show more interesting rather than realistic.

That was the assessment of his younger brother in a scene at their family dinner table.
Perhaps he subordinated truth to family loyalty and personal admiration.
I dunno if he really IS their best detective.
Definitionally, he is whatever the author WANTS him to be.

By the act of telling a story,
an author becomes a god, ex officio, ex cathedra.
He is the god of that mental universe that sprang from his mind
and its author defines reality, in this story and in ALL stories;
like Athena, thay spring full armed from the mind of Zeus (or from their author).

Many people have taken satisfaction in fictional art.

Do u prefer factually accurate renditions of historically genuine events ?

@OmSigDAVID,
Depends - if I'm just watching something for entertainment value - facts really don't matter. However, if I am watching to learn or gain some valueable insight then yes.

A TV show like this - to me is pure entertainment. I watch sponge bob with my kids sometimes - I really do not take it for fact.
