What Did You Think of ‘Boston’s Finest?’

Donnie Wahlberg's new reality show, "Boston's Finest," follows Boston Police officers around the city. The crew filmed some pick-up shots in Charlestown in December.

Editor’s note: We’ll avoid any major plot details in this post, but we can’t swear the comments will remain spoiler free. If you want to comment about specifics, please be kind and add a spoiler alert to the top line. 

After weeks of hype, “Bostons Finest” finally premiered Wednesday night. The TNT reality series follows Boston Police officers as they patrol the city. The show opened to strong reviews and a litany of excited tweets from the department itself.

The first episode focused on a fugitive hunt in Southie and Dorchester, a melee in Hyde Park, and an officer’s bittersweet field trip to Lynn. And while other cop-based reality shows you’ve heard of focus on foot chases and shirtless arrests, “Boston’s Finest” took the time to introduce officers and tell their stories before getting into the nitty gritty of arrests and manhunts.

What did you think? Were you impressed by the first episode or did you find it wanting? Does the show reflect well on Boston and its police department? Tell us what you think in the comments below. And please, flag any spoilers before you begin! read more

What Do You Think About Gov. Patrick’s Travel Ban?

Gov. Deval Patrick.

All non-emergency drivers were ordered off the roads on Friday when Gov. Deval Patrick issued an executive order banning travel during the blizzard. As of Saturday morning, the travel ban is still in effect.

Patrick’s executive order is being praised by some and bashed by others, reported The Boston Globe.

While former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis, who was in charge of the commonwealth during the Blizzard of ’78, praised the governor’s move, others called the order “tyrannical” and say the strict ban and hefty fines were too much, according to The Globe.

Those caught violating the ban would face up to a year in jail and a $ 500 fine.

What do you think? Do you agree with the governor’s decision or do you think the travel ban was too strict? Let us know in the comment section.
