Tom Selleck struggles with Blue Bloods scenes and the reason is hidden

Selleck told People Magazine:

Dinner scenes are difficult because the focus is not on the food. It is also not about the dialogue, it is about the subtext. The audience does not care about the words, they want subtext. The dinner scenes with the family are full of subtext and the audience understands that, because it sees what the characters go through.

According to Selleck, the appeal of the scenes for the viewer lies primarily in the emotions, with which the characters have to fight, and how they break out between the fork and the knife. The difficulty for the stars is understandable: they have to decide how much of their fictional inner life they want to show. They have to assess at any given time whether secrecy or openness suits their character.
