Steven Bochco's crime drama brought a new gravitas to the small screen with its gritty portrayal of New York cops whose personal lives are as complicated as their cases, especially when it comes to cantankerous Det. Andy Sipowicz (Dennis Franz). Sipowicz's partners include the intense John Kelly (David Caruso) and earnest Bobby Simone (Jimmy Smits), but a surprising relationship is with intellectual DA Sylvia Costas (Sharon Lawrence).
Summary of Season 1 (1993) - 6 discs
This Emmy Award-winning police procedural series introduced several immortal characters -- among them, maverick detectives Andy Sipowicz (Dennis Franz) and John Kelly (David Caruso), two guys who definitely don't play by the rules. A heady mix of nudity and foul language woven seamlessly into intriguing storylines, the groundbreaking show raised more than a few eyebrows as it tackled vigilante violence, homosexuality and prostitution.
