“OH, YOU MISSED BAND PRACTICE, HUH? WHAT A TRAGEDY”

.

While the following is an about average attempt at a summary, it, perhaps purposely, leaves out a terrifying event that takes place at the end of the episode which will shake the Reagan family to its core.

.

“When NYPD Deputy Chief Donald Kent, a commanding officer of the gang division, and his wife are gunned down in an apparent gang hit, Frank orders all hands on deck to catch his friend’s killer. Working the case, Danny and Baez go see Mario Hunt, a well-known member of a deadly gang.”

Detective Reagan, frustrated at having to go “by the book” while tracking down the scumbags who viciously shot to death Deputy Chief Donald Kent and his wife on their 30th wedding anniversary, responds to Trent’s, “Chill, dude, I just did” with

“COME ON, RUSSELL, I DON’T GIVE A DAMN IF YOU LIKE MEN, OR WOMEN, OR CREAM FILLED DONUTS, OKAY?”

.

“Russell Stark*, a famous Hollywood action movie star, is shadowing Danny as part of his research for his next big movie role playing a New York detective. Linda, Erin, Nicky, and even Danny’s partner, Detective Baez, are all excited, but Danny thinks he is a big distraction and calls the whole shadowing thing off. Danny gets an urgent call from Russell late at night to help him as he’s been a victim of a mugging and has been stabbed. When Danny shows up, it’s clear that Russell was attacked while cruising for a gay date, but because of his celebrity status as a straight leading man, he is adamant that Danny cannot tell anyone.”

*The characters name is actually ‘Russell Berke’. That CBS.com got this wrong is, I must say, a little unnerving.

CURRENTLY WORKING ON A PORTRAIT OF DETECTIVE ANTHONY ABETEMARCO. NOT BECAUSE I WANT TO, BUT, BECAUSE I HAVE TO.

.

“A native New Yorker, Anthony is of Italian descent and unabashedly loves to eat. He has a habit of speaking in double negatives, a trait which often confuses Erin. Fiercely loyal to his family, Anthony has ended up in hot water when he got a little too forceful with a man he suspected of taking advantage of his mother’s Alzheimer’s to access her finances.”

ARTISTIC INTERPRETATIONS OF CHARACTERS AND SCENES FROM THE GREATEST TELEVISION SHOW THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN

.

My work, utilizing the CBS police procedural drama series, ‘Blue Bloods’ ( Starring Tom Selleck as Frank Reagan, the New York Police Commissioner, and patriarch of the Reagan clan, a multigenerational family of cops) explores the relationship between postmodern discourse and law enforcement.

With influences as diverse as Munch and Andy Warhol, new insights are crafted from both explicit and implicit textures.

Ever since I spent most of the 1980s watching ‘Hill Street Blues’ I have been fascinated by the essential unreality of the human condition. What starts out as triumph soon becomes manipulated into a dialectic of lust, leaving only a sense of failing and the chance of a new reality.

As intermittent derivatives become clarified through frantic and diverse practice, the viewer is left with a clue to the darkness of our future.
