Blue for Royalty: Blue Bloods Premieres in AXN

Southeast Asia’s Number 1 International Channel, AXN, proudly offers its latest TV Series, Blue Bloods. Last night, February 17, bloggers and media people witnessed its special press screening at the Newport Ultra Cinema in Resorts World Manila, Pasay City.

Bloggers and AXN Team at Resorts World Manila Ultra Cinema

We were all excited to watch AXN’s new show mostly because its packed with action, drama and notable actors are playing in this upcoming series. Like Blue Bloods, we were treated royally at RWM’s Ultra Cinema in our reclining seats and overflowing popcorn and drinks.

Hosted by The Amazing Race Asia 4’s Winners Rich Hardin and Rich Herrera, they ushered us into a night of police adventures and crime solving with the Reagan family and its interesting bloodline. After the premiere of its first episode, prizes were up for grabs from AXN and Penshoppe to the people who can answer the trivia questions correctly.

Now, I can’t wait to watch this series! I have been a huge follower of series that involves crime solving and investigation. Good thing I finally finished my Veronica Mars Marathon, now I can get my fix of an adventure series that I can surely follow and get addicted again.

Watch their first double-episode on February 22, 9:05 PM. Subsequent episodes are shown every Tuesday, 10:00 PM only at AXN.

Know more about the Blue Bloods via AXN's Press Release:

Blue Bloods: When Law Means More Than Blood Ties
Tom Selleck makes stellar comeback in new family-cop drama

“... skillfully done and performed.”

"CBS's 'Blue Bloods' is one of the best new series of the fall season…solid and satisfying"
St. Louis Post Dispatch

AXN, Southeast Asia’s No. 1 international channel, is excited to be the first in Asia to premiere Blue Bloods. This latest offering is by the same award-winning producers of hit TV series The Sopranos, Mitchell Burgess and Robin Green; and the creator that gave audiences iconic TV series Charlies’ Angels, Starsky and Hutch and Fantasy Island, Leonard Goldberg.

Praised as “one of the season’s five best new shows” by Entertainment Weekly, Blue Bloods has indeed lived up to its promise. The series debut in the United States was CBS’ highest rated Friday night premiere in 6 years! Critics universally praise Blue Bloods for its compelling characters, brilliant writing and engaging plot lines. In fact, the show has done so well for CBS that its shift from Friday to Wednesday nights has been a stellar success, topping its best ratings since its premiere!

A drama about a multi-generational family of cops dedicated to New York City law enforcement, Blue Bloods marks multi-award winning Tom Selleck’s (Magnum P.I., Jesse Stone) return to prime-time TV. The stellar cast of young and seasoned actors include Donnie Wahlberg (Righteous Kill, Band of Brothers), Broadway luminary Len Cairou (Damages, The West Wing) and Bridget Moynahan (Coyote Ugly, Sex and the City).

Frank Reagan (Selleck) is the New York Police Commissioner and heads both the police force and the Reagan brood. He runs his department as diplomatically as he runs his family, even when dealing with the politics that plagued his unapologetically bold father, Henry (Cairou), during his stint as commissioner. A source of pride and concern for Frank is his eldest son Danny (Wahlberg), a seasoned detective and Iraqi War veteran who on occasion uses dubious tactics to solve cases.

The sole Reagan woman in the family, Erin (Moynahan), is a New York Assistant District Attorney and newly single parent, who also serves as the legal compass for her siblings and father. Jamie (Will Estes, Reunion, U-571) is the youngest Reagan, fresh out of Harvard Law and the family's "golden boy”; however, unable to deny the family tradition, Jamie decides to give up a lucrative future in law and is now a newly minted cop. Jamie's life takes an abrupt turn when he is asked to become part of a clandestine police investigation even his father knows nothing about and which might have been related to the death of his brother, Joe.

Indeed, what sets Blue Bloods apart from the run-of-the-mill cop drama is its focus on blood ties and the clashes that inevitably arise from having a family of cops and a daughter as a prosecutor. As Tom Selleck shared in an interview, “One of the key elements of the show almost every week is a family dinner. Frank is a patriarch of a family… They’re Irish and they’re Catholic and they argue a lot at family dinner but it seems to be one of the favourite parts of the show.”

Blue Bloods’ balanced combination of nail-biting detective drama and family struggles offers rich material rarely handled so well by both a cast of actors and writers. It invites you to fall in love and admire the men and women who struggle in and out of themselves to maintain order in New York City and their families. Sometimes, law enforcement means more than blood ties.

What Makes Me Loud?

These people make me feel LOUD, thru thick or thin :)

I am literally LOUD. You could hear me talk and people can tell that I am coming around. Yup, little ol' petite me can shake grounds and they would all know what hit them. They say that I have this powerful voice that can startle anyone then and there.

But what makes me LOUDER are my friends and loved ones. They inspire me to do a lot of things, reach for my goals and support me in almost everything. I can have all the heartaches in the world but they inspire me to go on. I could quit from a messy situation and they're there, open arms and opening wide.

And just like Tommy Hilfiger's LOUD, trials may come and go, but my friends could produce the loudest sound in my life. And they will be there forever. :)
Join Nuffnang and Tommy Hilfiger Philippines for they will be giving away a pair of 7 ml Loud For Him and Loud For Her fragrances to the first 30 valid Nuffnangers who are loud enough to be heard.
LIVE LOUD! And LOVE LOUD this February! :)

This Heart's Month...

Believe it or not, I am pressured. Its my first Valentine's Day with him and I want it to be special. Not just because he deserves it, but also for me, who believes in love and happy endings and pink fondant cakes and laces and fluffy gowns someday.

For almost ten months, here we are, stronger than ever. I didn't actually imagine that people from his end would support and even love me as if I were their own. But what touched me the most was when his grandmother told me to continue what we have and that I would always be welcome in their family. Sometimes, I'm not even sure if I deserve it. Maybe I really did something good :)

We have a long road ahead. Its will be a tiring battle, but hopefully worth it in the end. If I could only choose, I would pretty much get a time machine, program myself to the time where I could help him not get involved in the mess he's in.

..But I guess that's life. You have to make mistakes so you'd end up to the right one :)

And so I leave with my favorite line from the movie, Tangled:

Rapunzel: What if it's not everything I dreamed it would be?
Flynn Rider: It will be.
Rapunzel: And what if it is? What do I do then?
Flynn Rider: Well,that's the good part I guess. You get to go find a new dream.

Dream a good dream everyone!
