Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
Only a few weeks have gone by and Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky says it's been a rough season for Tom Selleck.
Especially, he notes, in this area. Cable problems knocked the pilot episode of his new "Blue Bloods" off the screen. Then the same thing happened the following week.
The third show, however, did arrive as scheduled and Sokolsky wonders whether that was an advantage or another obstacle. Built around a New York police family, "Blue Bloods" seems tp be focusing upon the same story lines seen on just about every other police series.
And when not doing that, it appears to be little more than another version of ABC's "Brothers and Sisters."
All this is a far cry from Selleck's popular "Magnum, P.I." and Sokolsky wonders what can be done to turn it in a new direction.
