It says much for the creators, writers and cast that here are characters fans so greatly care about. New York's Catholic Reagan family represents different aspects of the law, experiences giving them much to discuss at Sunday dinner reunions.
Ex-Commissioner Henry ever imparts wisdom that accompanies his age. Commissioner Frank increasingly feels the strain, especially now with an interim mayor not up to the job. Abrasive Detective Danny fumes at new rules seemingly favouring the criminal. (Surely violence justified during an interrogation if time is limited and lives at risk?) The DA's Erin must ensure all is done by the book if a trial to succeed. Patrol cop Jamie feels he can be more use out and about, nipping potential crimes in the bud. Thought of promotion not for him.
Here are characters ever evolving, all recognizing a need to adapt to changing times. Should certain drugs be legalized? Do high speed chases represent too great a risk? What about an individual's right to privacy when modern technology can be so intrusive? How best to tackle hacking, fake news and the like?
As ever there is much to think about. Certain storylines necessarily depress. A few are genuinely moving. Fortunately there is humour to lighten the mood. They often involve Danny: sparring with DA's Anthony, a favourite character who gives as good as he gets; reluctantly receiving help from the criminal who delights in calling him "Defective". Also enjoyed are Frank's scenes with three trusted aides Jerome, Sid and Abigail. They are not afraid to speak their minds - discussions most lively, outcome often useful.
On many levels then, so much to admire. Hearteningly the Reagan family remains very much at the show's core - faith and loyalty amongst their many strengths.
(22 episodes, interesting background features about all. Curiously the box set includes the pilots for two other shows: Bull; SEAL Team.)
I have seen all 9 seasons and look forward to seeing the 10th and future episodes of the Reagan saga.
