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.

Left a very negative Legacy
16 May 2006 | by Marcela KronsteinSee all my reviews

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.
