  • Debut Sept 2013 Blue Bloods Is Series' Worst Script Ever

    1.0
    Sad to say, but this season's debut Blue Bloods was an incredible letdown, and probably the worst script in the history of what has been a rather reliable, appealing show.



    The so-called "cop killer" plot was never developed or explained, so there was no believable storyline to go with the hyped "dilemma" on whether evidence rules should be thrown out the window when a policewoman is fatally shot.



    Instead, the script resorts to the racist use of a stock "bad black dude" character who was simply tricked into making a confession by tactics that would have gotten the Erin character disbarred, and Donnie Wahlberg sent back to a boy band. There was no development of the deceased cop's character; there was no logical reason for the cop to have been shot; and the black guy tricked into making the illegal confession was, by default and terrible script writing, transformed into a sympathetic character.



    I'm surprised that Tom Selleck didn't demand the script be rejected. Too bad---this show should still have life, but it needs consistent, quality writing and believable stories.moreless
