Just days after Sylvia gives birth to a baby boy (Theo), Sipowicz suffers an emotional setback when Andy Jr. is found murdered in the line of duty. Sipowicz wants Simone to lead the case of his son's...
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

The footage of the Chinese parade (dragon, fireworks, drums) that's shown in the opening credits was used in the opening scenes of Year of the Dragon (1985). See more »
Det. Baldwin Jones:
[Sipowicz shows up at a crime scene]
Hey, Andy, what are you doing here? I thought when Bale's shooting was solved, you were going back to uniform.
Det. Rita Ortiz:
[looks at Sipowicz and smiles]
Go ahead, tell them.
They gave me the squad. Chief of D's told me last night at Medavoy's racket.
Det. John Clark, Jr.:
Really? Why didn't you tell anybody?
I didn't want to distract from Medavoy's night. Anyway, it went out this morning.
Det. John Clark, Jr.:
Well, I don't know that I can work for you.
Det. Laura Murphy:
I don't know if any of us can.

I have read the comments listed and I want to add my reflection on the entire show and the number of years on the air. NYPD Blue is one of the best programs that has been on the air in the last 10 years. As each season has proceeded I have enjoyed the characters as they have become like family or good friends. Even when the cast has changed, it's amazing how the new people have been worked into the magic of the show. I can't believe some of the comments from the people on this site. I can only imagine the kind of "Air Headed Junk" you want to see on TV. I guess some of you can't get around the idea of a Class Act show like NYPD Blue and the kind of actors and writers it takes to have a program that comes back season after season. I am one of the people that will miss NYPD Blue because I don't watch much TV and it's a shame that a show like this one is among the few I consider worth watching. So I will look elsewhere for entertainment due to lack of interest in the "Over Abundance" of Reality shows and non stimulating programs currently listed for viewing.
