Creator: Steven Bochco, David Milch
One of my dad’s favorite shows. For a police procedural it’s pretty good, though it certainly is formulaic. Dennis Franz makes the show so it’s a good thing he never left it. I also enjoyed Jimmy Smits and Ricky Schroeder, though Mark-Paul Gosselaar was weak. Gordon Clapp created a great character as well. And Bill Brochtrup was wonderful as the gay administrative aide (and his sexuality wasn’t that big a deal). The thing is, though, is that I can only remember the characters. I remember nothing about nothing as far as any plot goes. Just Sipowicz acting unethically constantly and lots of bare butts.
