If you don't understand the context of the title of this review, then you really need to watch the previous 8 movies in this series, hopefully in the correct order. This is a show that lays down a foundation in the very first movie, and then builds on that foundation throughout the series. You get to know the characters, and how they interact in the life of Jesse Stone.
This really is a wonderful, rewarding series, if you take the time to view it as it was meant to be viewed, from 1st to last.
Hopefully we see at least one more Jesse Stone movie from Tom Selleck before he steps down from the role.
