  1. Loved Donna’s eloquent review of : CONCRETE COWBOY to Blue Bloods: The Best and Worst of TV. First, Concrete Cowboy is a “must see” movie. Great plot, fascinating characters, mix of drama and humor, and I learned that black cowboys groups currently exist no just in Philadelphia, but in many other cities as well.
    About Blue Bloods, sad to see a really good TV show go downhill fast and badly with a change of writers. What a shame.

    1. Hi, Graeme,
      So glad you enjoyed the episode reviewing CONCRETE COWBOY and “Blue Bloods.” I SO agree that CONCRETE COWBOY is something everyone should see! And, unfortunately, I don’t see any improvement coming for “Blue Bloods,” although the network has renewed the venerable show for another season. The most recent episode featured yet another example of a female cop making a stupid self-defense mistake to put herself at risk. I think the writers should all be forced to take a basic self-defense class!
