This has been a long time coming. Almost thirteen years! Blue Bloods is a CBS juggernaut that’s developed a reputation for being your grandfather’s favorite show. It’s also perfectly symbolic of everything that’s wrong with the broader police procedural genre — when it’s lucid enough to even be coherent. It may not have the on-screen violence of its neighbors, but the racism and sexism and cultural relativism is so pernicious, quietly inflecting every moment of every last godforsaken episode.
In other words, we have to pause our ongoing discussion of our favorite show, Physical: 100, to talk about what might just be the worst show ever made.
