Boston's Finest

"Boston's Finest" review by Suzanne
Premieres February 27 on TNT

I thought at first this was a fictional show, and it reminded me somewhat of TNT's "Southland". However, it is a "reality show" set within the lives of Boston police officers. It's very well done and seems much more real than most reality shows. The "characters", for lack of a better word, are very attractive, but obviously not actors.

I think it's a very good show, and I would watch it if I had time to add another show. It's very gritty and real, and a lot of stuff goes on. Probably not as much as would happen in "Southland" or any other cop show, though, because it is reality. It's much better than, say, "Cops" or any show like that. It shows all different levels of the police force, and not just their work, but their home lives as well.

Kudos to Donnie Wahlberg and the others who came up with this great idea. I hope it sparks a trend in reality shows to be more real and less fake, overly-dramatic, and tawdry.

TNT Explores the Riveting Lives of Boston Police Officers In Gripping New Unscripted Series Boston's Finest
New Series from Executive Producer Donnie Wahlberg To Premiere Wednesday, Feb. 27
This February, TNT is going to take viewers on a dramatic journey into the lives of Boston police officers – both on and off the job – in Boston’s Finest, a gripping new unscripted series from executive producers Donnie Wahlberg (Blue Bloods) and Seth Jarrett and Julie Insogna-Jarrett (Celebrity Ghost Stories). Centering on the men and women of the Boston Police Department, Boston's Finest will offer viewers an up-close and very personal look at what it takes to protect and serve one of America's greatest and most distinctive cities. The series is set to premiere Wednesday, Feb. 27, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT), exclusively on TNT.
Unlike many unscripted series about law enforcement, Boston's Finest will follow the fearless actions of the entire Boston Police Department, including patrol officers, detectives, special task forces and members of the SWAT Team, the Fugitive Unit and highly decorated Gang Unit.
In addition to following the officers while they are on duty, Boston's Finest will provide a glimpse into their personal lives when they are off the clock and living in the same neighborhoods they protect each day. Viewers will also be introduced to the officers' families, who serve as their all-important support system.
Boston’s Finest not only celebrates the bravery of officers who risk their lives every day, but also showcases the heart and soul of one of the oldest and proudest police departments in the nation.
Boston's Finest comes to TNT from Jarrett and Insogna-Jarrett's Jarrett Creative Group and Wahlberg's Donnie D. Productions.
