  • Bait and Switch

    2.5
    Did anyone else notice that the pilot had a different actress than Sami Gayle playing Niki Reagan (sp?)
  • Didn't I already see all this?

    2.0
    There's nothing new in this first episode of this new (new?) series. Policemen, policemen, policemen, a whole family of police servants, wow, how exciting. Exactly like in, say, Family Cops I, II and III. Exactly like in tens of movies or tv series and with all the rhetoric of the case. In addition to this, all the members of this family lack that minimum of humanity or niceness that's essential to feel for them. In addition to this, too, the series seems quite reactionary. Just my first impression. Is it going to change? What's sure that I don't feel the need to see it further.moreless
  • Great interesting case, and a nice inroduction to our characters!

    10
    I was not planning to watch 'Blue Bloods', as 'Criminal Minds' was on at the same time, here in Australia, but by chance, Criminal Minds was cancelled for tonight, so I gave this new show a try, and I very much enjoyed it!



    The cas that was investigated was very interesting, and qutie good, although it seemed a little too easy, with the fact that only three people ownde the doll.



    I enjoyed meeting the characters, and there are some interesting personalities there, and this will undoubtedly create some great scenes in the future!



    Overall, I think this was a great start to a new crime show. Nothing lik the standards of 'Criminal Minds' or 'NCIS', but for a first episode, this was great, and certainly a useful building block!moreless
  • Abrasive production, and not entertaining

    5.0
    The story line featured the typical abuse by public servants, supposedly justified by the threat to a little girl's life. Another small step in deadening the public to such violations of law and constitutionality. Of course, "good" people never get "worked over" because only "bad" people are chased by the police.



    The production was typical trendy hand held shaky cam, jump cuts, swoops, zooms, attention deficit disorder editing, and irritating. Get a tripod. NAIL down the camera. STABILIZE the image. SLOW down the cuts.



    In short, another pilot episode ruined by jerky, hand held camera work. Can't blame anyone but whoever is making the creative decision to make crappy visual TV.



    Come on - buy a tripod - nail down the image. It may be trendy, but this jittery jumpy image is unwatchable, especially on an 8' wide HDTV screen. I watch TV for entertainment value - not nausea nor motion sickness.



    When I have to avert my eyes, or shut them, the show devolves into UGLY RADIO.



    This is the age of HDTV, digital image processing, and pristine detail. And what do we get? A never ending Brownian movement background, hand held shaky cam shots ad infinitum, and action sequences that one cannot grasp because the jump cuts and edits mar any continuity of vision.



    When I, a live human being, watch something in real life, I don't see a shaky image, I see a steady image even if I'm jarred. I possess a visual processing computer system that transcends any piece of photographic hardware existing by a huge margin. There is absolutely nothing endearing about shakycam, it's a fad that's being overused by individuals without a scrap of real creativity.



    What is wrong with the networks?

    This visual abuse is appearing across the board. Are they really that stupid...

    Oh right - it's "Show business".moreless
  • Looking forward to the furthur development of the characters and role they are to play in the series. i.e. Agent Cisco

    9.5
    Looking forward to the up coming story lines; as it seem s to have a great stories developing. The show has a real human element. It is good to have a show that does not appear to be a show but an account of real people living in a real world with all so the human experience. The family's interaction makes you feel your home/ your family is just an American family. There was a very good balance of emotions.

    Fast moving show. Held my interest to last moment. The show left me wanting more and looking forward to the next show.moreless
