Storyline

Each week, viewers saw the gritty reality of life in a New York City Police unit, as the officers go about their work with a grim determination, and a willingness to break the same laws that they're supposed to be enforcing. Two partners, Detectives Andy Sipowicz (Dennis Franz) and John Kelly (David Caruso) (later replaced by Bobby Simone (Jimmy Smits)), were the central characters in this weekly Police drama, and personified very different approaches to their difficult job. Sipowicz's brash gruffness (covering an emotional vulnerability) was tempered by the precise and controlled demeanor of the two partners with whom he has worked.

Quotes

Det. Baldwin Jones: [Jones has been questioning a rapper about the shooting of another rapper] You know, I'm glad your lawyer showed up, 'cause now I can tell you what I really think. I think you are a punk-ass bitch wannabe thug just like Jenksy and Andre said. Don't like it? You wanna jump; jump.
[Rapper just looks at him]
Det. Baldwin Jones: That's what I thought.

Where Are the DVDs?
16 October 2011 | by davisnathanSee all my reviews

Great acting, excellent character development, etc. I particularly liked the Jimmy Smits years, but all of them were great.

One of the bet shows ever on TV---lasted 12 seasons---but only the first 5 are available on DVD.

Does anyone know why? Is there some sort of contract problem or lawsuit? Are they scheduled to be released at some time in the future? I would like to know----the first 5 seasons came out quite some time ago (8 years?) and then nothing! You would think that a show with the kind of legs this one had and the audience to keep it on the air for 12 seasons would represent excellent potential for the DVD sales. SO---what's up with that? Anybody know?
