As I've said at various points this week, the shows I've elected not to review for time reasons haven't necessarily been the ones I hated, but the ones I had little to say about. "Blue Bloodswas definitely one of those. Cast with a bunch of actors I like (Tom Selleck, Donnie Wahlberg, Bridget Moynahan, even Nick Turturro as an NYPD cop again), solidly-executed, promise of some larger arc in addition to whatever cases Donnie and company work, etc. Nothing really wrong with it, but also nothing that really excited me, either. (The case in particular was both manipulative and dull.)

There's been some showrunner turnover, so maybe I'll check back on it in a few weeks to see what kind of show it's become, but in the meantime, what did everybody else think?

Alan Sepinwall has been reviewing television since the mid-'90s, first for Tony Soprano's hometown paper, The Star-Ledger, and now for HitFix. His new book, "The Revolution Was Televised," about the last 15 years of TV drama, is for sale at Amazon. He can be reached at
