Storyline

Each week viewers see the gritty reality of life in a New York City Police unit as the officers go about their work with a grim determination. Two partners, Detectives Andy Sipowicz and John Kelley (later replaced by Bobby Simone), are the central characters in this weekly police drama, and personify very different approaches to their difficult job. Sipowicz's brash gruffness (covering an emotional vulnerability) is tempered by the precise and controlled demeanor of the two partners with whom he has worked.

Trivia

The sets on this show of the "New York streets" are on the back lot of Twentieth Century Fox and were originally built for Hello, Dolly! (1969) in 1968. Some location work was actually done in New York City for most of the show's run, mixing specific scenes with general location footage that was used for between-scenes and opening-credits sequences. By the last few seasons, however, the combination of high costs for location filming and the show's reduced ratings meant that 100% of filming was done in Los Angeles. See more »

NYPD Blues' Run
23 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I agree that season 1 was the best. Kelly was one of the strongest characters in television history and the show was in top form that first year. I thought Bobby Simone was pleasant enough but somehow that era was lacking and whoever said Kim Delany was laughable as a New York cop wasn't kidding, she is the worst actress. I actually thought that Sorenson was going to be special at the very beginning but the writing just got too weird especially at the end but I still think Rick Schroder (I don't think there's an "e" in his name) was awesome especially considering what he was given. I can't say I like the newest partner (forget his name, I don't watch regularly anymore) very much because he just not convincing as Andy's partner. Of course the one person who always is worth watching is Dennis Franz. Hell if it was the rest of the cast (well with the exception of a new girl who is hot AND surprisingly believable from what little I've seen), I probably wouldn't tune in at all. The writing certainly stopped going anywhere a long time ago.
