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.

Quotes

Lt. Arthur Fancy: Here's some free advice: get enough self-respect so when some fool starts talking to you like a nigger, you don't go half nuts and jam yourself up needing to prove he isn't right.
Officer Reggie Fancy: You got some funny ideas about self-respect.
Lt. Arthur Fancy: My idea's when I hear an ass out in the field braying, I don't feel any deep need to start braying back.

What's the fuss all about?
12 July 2000 | by pieschelSee all my reviews

I mean that seriously! NYPD Blue is said to be the best police drama ever created and I think that its probably one of the most low-life shows on TV today! So maybe ladies think that Rick Schroeder is good looking or maybe you like to see people harassed by Dennis Franz. What I'm trying to say is that besides what people may think about what I just said, NYPD Blue is not that great! After watching crappy actors being interviewed in a claustrophobic room for an hour, you start to get extremely bored and start to think "Hasn't it been a while since the last commercials?" This show is a weekly torture to TV viewers that surely is not likely to amuse you.
