Bluebloods is about a family of cops… and apparently not very smart ones. Tom Selleck plays a cop at a the top. When one of his cop sons beats up a suspect, thus making everything that happened later on the case “fruit of the poisoned tree” and making it almost certain that the perp will go free, what does topcop do? He keeps the same son on the case, to find evidence that isn’t derived from what happened and thus generate a conviction.

Ummm, no. Even if the son were not a screw-up, wouldn’t you put another detective on it? So that there’s at least some sliver of a chance that any new evidence won’t be seen as being inspired by the improper events and thus further fruit of said poisoned tree?

The drama in this feels very manufactured. The events are all TV cop rather than real cop. There are some familiar faces on board, but they just remind us of better cop shows they’ve been on.
