Wanted it to go on
28 November 2019 | by kris-graySee all my reviews

I've just finished binge watching my DVD box set of all 7 series. I am so sad that it ended here. Probably the best Cop show ever that featured a number of future Academy award nominees and winners in early roles some of them very small, blink and you miss 'em. I enjoyed it back in the day and I enjoyed watching all 144 episodes again, 30 + years later.

The series suffered a bit when Stephen Bochco was fired after series 5, taking his wife Barbara Bosson who played Fay Furrillo which left a gap in the story arc.

If you've never seen it seek out the DVD box set, you won't be disappointed.
