Season 3 of "NYPD Blue" was my favorite season of my favorite TV show of all time. That was where "Blue" hooked me - throwing me into a drama I had never seen the likes of before on TV - especially network TV. I suppose there were similar plot elements and storylines explored in past shows or done more graphically in feature films, but even having seen some of this before, I had never seen it done so well and so effectively. Credit the writing, the performances and a sense of in-your-face real world authenticity - we feel we know these characters - they ARE real.

There was a lot of hoopla surrounding this series when it began over its frank depictions of racism, alcoholism, sex, violence and rough language (all this, of course, is what made it feel like something of a docudrama versus just another police serial); and again in its second season with the whole David Caruso, Jimmy Smits thing. Season 1 had plenty of great storylines and season 2 was riveting as a season of change; full of new ideas, different from season 1. It retained the gritty realism of the first season's police stories, but managed to become more involving on a character level. Season 3 was so spectacularly effective because, unlike season 2, this is not a season of change. Where season 2 got much of its drama from everything being shaken up, in season 3 we knew and cared about all the characters on a much deeper level. Sensing this - using this - the writers decided to pull the rug out from under us resulting in some of the best drama I had seen before or since.

Season 4 had some mighty high standards to live up to; and for the most part it does.

After a quite lengthy wait between releasing Seasons 2 and 3, Fox is quickly releasing Season 4 to the joy of NYPD Blue fans everywhere. In Season 4 some things change: Det. Adrianne Lesniak (Justine Miceli) leaves, replaced by Det. Jill Kirkendall (Andrea Thompson), and Det. James Martinez (Nicholas Turturro) finds his future wife in PAA Gina Colon (Lourdes Benedicto), while some things remain the same: Detectives Bobby Simone (Jimmy Smits) and Diane Russell (Kim Delaney) are still experiencing growing pains in their relationship as Diane accepts an undercover assignment and has the added pressures of her family. However, the main theme of the show - the redemption of Andy Sipowicz (Dennis Franz) - is still ongoing after losing his son and falling off the wagon. The personal relationships between the characters to one side, the series continues to impress as a realistic, first-rate crime drama, thanks to the writing of David Milch and the technical expertise of Bill Clarke, plus the natural chemistry between Franz and Smits as co-workers. Those who come to the series for the first time will be as hooked as anyone who followed it during its 12-year run. We fans can only hope this set does well enough to spawn a Season 5.

The 22 episode season will be released in a 4 disc set and the episodes are as follows:

Disc 1, Side A

Moby Greg; Thick Stu; Yes, We Have No Cannolis; Where's 'Swaldo?

Disc 1, Side B

Where'd the Van Gogh?

This set should've rated five stars easily with my criteria. The show was at its peak, with great story lines, great characters and fantastic writing. The extras on the set were solid, with three commentaries, including one from two actresses from the show and two from producers. There was a featurette looking at the new characters and another focusing on the "Look" of NYPD Blue, which in and of itself was basically a character on the show.

What made this set so tough was the continued use of double-sided dual discs. I know that this saves money and without these types of disc, which were also used for season three, we may not have seen NYPD Blue after the first two seasons, but I just have to complain. I had one disc that the main menu wouldn't pop up, which left me scratching my head on how to get past the first episode (which automatically played when I hit play). I finally had to go into the program portion and program one episode at a time for the final three episodes on that disc. In addition, there were a few episodes on a couple of discs where the action and sound weren't in sync and others where the disc almost froze. I couldn't locate any scratches, but I imagine they were there. This type of disc just screams for problems and unfortunately it happened on a great set of a great season.

The fourth season of Blue featured a few new characters in the 15th precinct, but the story still revolves around Andy Sipowicz (Dennis Franz) and Bobby Simone (Jimmy Smits), partners in the detective squad. The end of the previous season saw Sipowicz slide back into his drinking habits after the death of his son.
