Boston’s Finest…

I am not a fan of reality shows unless of course if you would count the Arias trial a reality show.  There is a fairly new reality show called Boston’s Finest which airs on Wednesday night at 8 PM CST on TNT.  It is real stories with real policemen set in Boston.  Donnie Wahlberg  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donnie_Wahlberg is the narrator of the show.  He is a favorite of mine.  He was born in Dorchester Massachusetts so he has the perfect New England accent.

One very interesting fact about Wahlberg is that he was a member of New Kids on the Block in the 80s.  At present he is a featured cast member on Blue Bloods which airs on Friday nights on CBS.


But, getting back to Boston’s Finest.  I am fascinated by this show.  http://www.tntdrama.com/series/bostons-finest/?SR=Boston%27s_Finest  I am enjoying viewing the scenery (houses, etc.) which is a far cry from central Illinois.  

One of my oldest blogging buddies is from near Boston and this was one of the reasons I decided to watch the show.  I realize that Boston is actually one of the safest cities in the US,  For example, not like Peoria IL where there were 3 gun related deaths in the last 2 weeks.  Now that is scary and there are parts of Peoria that I don’t want to be in during the daytime, let alone at night.

So, if you are bored and want to catch the last episode in this series, tune in TNT this coming Wednesday and give it a watch.  Perhaps you will catch a glimpse of the ‘Big Dig Bridge’ which I have seen on several of the episodes.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Dig

I feel sure my friend Paul will correct me if I have made mistakes in this post.  Winking smile

Have a good weekend.  Stay safe and be happy!!

  4. Thanks Beth for the recommendation, I do believe that is a program that I would like. I've always enjoyed cop shows - reality or not - and emergency room shows.

  5. I don't have TNT, but we went to Boston once and had a wonderful time. I thought it was a beautiful city. Everywhere we went people made a fuss over Favorite Young Man's red hair (he was only 3 or 4). Maybe they thought he was Irish.

    Love,

  6. Always good to find a nice new show. The Walking Dead is done until October so I just might be in the market for a new one to watch...if I could pry myself from Netflix!

  8. Well, I do watch a couple of reality shows - The Biggest Loser and American Idol(when they begin to choose the top ten). It has been a long time since we watched any police shows. Dragnet comes to mind, and that was ages ago!

    I might mention that we made one very quick trip into Boston over ten years ago, and I want very much to go for a longer time!

    We are having a beautiful day here!

  11. Beth, There is a lot of beautiful things to see in Boston. I love seeing the houses and streets too. I'll have to try to catch this program. I had a great day today, although it was plenty cold. xoxo,Susie

  12. No mistakes Beth. I guess the Zakim Bridge is now the new recognisable landmark in the city. The finished product of the "big dig" as it was called has changed the face of Boston but it took a long time and ballooned in cost from the initial, I'm sort of making up these numbers, 2.8 billion to over 15 billion. It ran over the course of many years and was quite a mess for a long time. Still Boston has come a long way in the last 50 years
    I'm ashamed to say I have not watched the show. I will check out clips on youtube and report on Wallberg's accent.

    1. I think the girl who plays Nicki is so cute. It has been fun watching her go through the braces stage and ending up with such a beautiful smile. Love her haircut too!
