  1. Blue Bloods and the case of the poor writing that took me out of the story (spoilers ep11)

    So, I'm watching Blue Bloods. Fairly good, though quite predictable and very, very American. I've had a few reactions previously, but this one really killed it for me. <spoiler space, dunno if necessary> . . . . . . .
