Tom Selleck returns to television as police commissioner and patriarch of a law enforcement family. In the pilot episode, everyone is attending the graduation of youngest son Jamie from the police academy. Donnie Wahlberg is oldest son Det. Danny Reagan who’s working on the case of a kidnapped girl. I love me some Donnie Wahlberg. No, not just because he was bad boy of The New Kids on the Block, but because he’s actually a really good actor. If you don’t believe me, you better check out “Band of Brothers”. Anyway….Bridget Moynahan is Erin, assistant district attorney sis. Throw in a crotchety old veteran cop, some in-laws and a few kids and you’ve got the Reagans. Oh, and there’s a secret organization connected to the murder of cop/son/brother Joe Reagan.
“Sopranos” executive producers Mitchell Burgess and Robin Green are the creators and penned the first episode. Michael Cuesta directs. Whoop Whoop! Sounds like they’ve put together a great production team and cast.
This show surpassed my expectations. The whole secret society thing will draw a thread, so that it’s not just another episodical cop show. I think it’s going to be all about the relationships, at least I hope anyway. I’m interested enough to give it a few weeks. Hopefully the timeslot of death won’t stand in its way.
