Police are incompetent and viewers are idiots (apparently)
22 June 2011 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

I couldn't disagree more with the other review. BB makers are decided to do whatever to create suspense. And that includes showing the police as utterly incompetent while thinking viewers wouldn't notice. * SPOILERS!!! (Lots of them). First, in the initial shootout, while Salazar, the drug lord himself, kills his target with one shot (he does it IN PERSON and with no mask so he could be identified later? How nice of him to accommodate the screenwriter!) Danny (a trained officer) at almost pointblank is unable to even put a bullet remotely around the bad guy, who then escapes easily. * Later the police learn that in the past the drug lord has killed horribly all his witnesses, but Danny is not worried. No protection is given to him, while he calmly discusses with his wife arrangements to take her and their children to a safe place (someday; no need to hurry...). * Danny learns of Salazar's whereabouts from the mobster's girlfriend. In spite of being the bad guy one of the FBI-most-wanted who has a number of hit men and hoodlums working for him, Danny prepares (and carries out successfully) a setup with the sole assistance of his partner; no other police officer participate (how good is he! How self confident!). * At the press conference, against implicit but evident warnings --the police chief refuses to answer questions about identities-- the prosecutor betrays the identity of the witness (Danny Reagan) but nobody thinks much of it. * (Only after the bad guy is in custody) Danny sends a police escort to take his wife away but apparently the officers underway took the wrong bus (or were not pedaling fast enough) because the bad guys arrive first to the house and impersonate the police officers. Seemingly, Danny did not consider necessary (or convenient) to send to his house officers whom his wife might know, so she goes out of the house with these two perfect strangers who, lo and behold, then kidnap her. * While the police know that all past witnesses against Salazar were killed, nobody thinks necessary to give protection to the drug-lord's girlfriend, who then is kidnapped and killed. What a surprise!

No need to go any further. This episode was horrible, and I am done with Blue Bloods.
