      • Can I say I too love this series, but for all the action and guns and explosions and blood splatter and car chases and helicopters and knifes being wielded and sniperings and fisiticuffs and all the filmed-at locations, and [b]NOT[/b] for all the naked men stuff !!! Fingers crossed it comes back.

    Nothing against Bebe but I really hope that she is NOT a new love interest for Frank. I have a feeling that will be part of her role as well.

  • Nothing really sticks out for me tonight, especially as it’s my brother’s birthday and I’m skipping out on my bowling night to celebrate. Maybe catching up on some DVDs are in order.

  • C’mon Blue Bloods, where is your sense of originality? Do we really need to see yet another relationship pairing between colleagues who don’t get along at first? Really?
