Did You Know?


Lt. Susan Dalto: [Dalto has just learned she has been reassigned] The Chief of D's just told me I've been reassigned.
Lt. Arthur Fancy: Oh, yeah? Where to?
Lt. Susan Dalto: He didn't say. I guess someone with more juice than I have arranged this. I guarantee I'll find out who did this to me and they will pay.
Lt. Arthur Fancy: And I'd like to know how a supervisor alienates an entire squad in less than 48 hours. A squad who've shown they can deal with anything thrown at them. Meanwhile, you can start your 'investigation' by using the phone in the captain's office ...

The Badges leave the station ... and me too ! (dvd)
19 July 2014 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

At last, my DVD have run out ! no more original episodes without subtitles ! This season stays at the same level since Jimmy's departure, in other words very, very average and close to boring.

I don't know if NYPD is a cheap show or if it's for the sake of realism but after 4 seasons, i'm just tired to see the same old station, the same bits of tenements, bar or streets : it's supposed to happen in NYC but the city is limited to those drunken shots that runs seconds…

If i can pick the skeleton of this show, i'd say it has 3 fields : 1) the detective cases 2) the station life 3) the private life of certain detectives

This year, 1) was terrible ! No cases were interesting or moving, except maybe 8.19 when Sipowicz and Medeavoy disguise into grandpas !

3) had maybe some stuff as having Sorenson on the borderline brings a bit pulse to lethargic plots : Diane's choice of attraction was really poor as totally unoriginal : the new good looking detective, the doctor ! For something punchy, i would have paired her with Andy as they both lose spouses ! Instead Andy got his dreadful ex-wife !

2) offers the best moments : Connie was indeed a bursting recruit and the squad took 3 departures (i count Sorenson here along with Diane and Captain Fancy). It was cool to see their chats, their secrets, their help between partners as I wish to meet the same altruism in my work. Each leave was different : public for Fancy, intimate for Diane and unexpected for Sorenson, but every one was really moving thanks to this fantastic cast ! That's why i pick 8.13 as best episode this year: losing a comprehensive boss for a psycho one was totally accurate as I lived this also. So it was funny to see Andy and Fancy battles with their own female octopus !

Bye, 15th squad maybe see you on syndication but never more on DVD, and that's my confess !
