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.

Seasons 5 through 10 were the best
6 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

NYPD Blue is awesome. Ironically the show got better as the seasons went on but only the first 4 seasons are on DVD. One of the best story lines which aired on TV in 1997-1998 was the relationship between Diane Russel "Kim Delaney" and Bobby Simone "Jimmy Smitts". This relationship got hot in seasons 5 and 6. I have not seen these episodes since 1998 but was so moved that I will never forget the intensity of those episodes. If it ever comes out on DVD, I highly recommend watching seasons 5 and 6. I think that you will find the love affair between Diane and Bobby to be one of the best ever on television. It is similar to that of Rachel and Ross on "Friends" minus the comedy. Jimmy Smitts won the 1995 Golden Globe award for his portrayal of Bobby Simone. Kim Delaney won the Primetime Emmy Award in 1997 for her portrayal of Diane. In 1998, both Jimmy Smitts and Kim Delaney were nominated for the golden globe award. Despite this I am still waiting for seasons 5 and 6 to come out on DVD.
