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.Written by

Some of these working girls tell me this guy was a pimp. Imagine that; a white pimp. I mean, how does that happen, D?

And by that I mean the now almost countless bad TV shows with directors who think shaking the camera at everything is cute.
NYPD Blue started that awful trend, and while NYPD Blue was strangely still a hit (but not as big at it would have been had it been well shot!) thanks to its great writing in the first season, its progeny is stinking up the airwaves.
Film is an art form and doing that with the camera makes a mockery out of it.
A sad legacy for Steven Bochco who should be remembered from the epically well-produced L.A. Law.
