I love Inner City Cop TV shows, and there have been good ones -- and not-so-good ones -- since NYPD Blue was retired. One would think that TV producers would replicate the NYPD formula, but they simply haven't. I'm a New Yorker whose professional career had me working with the NYPD (and the NYFD) for a number of years, and Milch & Bochco absolutely nailed the style, demeanor and, yes, the cynicism of the NYPD. Good, no-nonsense cops. The dialogue is often so perfect that I will rewind some scenes a few times just to catch every word, and again experience the excellent acting and directing.
Of course the casting has been superb; even the actors who followed Jimmy Smits, as different as they were to "Bobby Simone", WORKED! And I am thrilled to see Nicholas Turturro as a hugely believable NYPD Sergeant in Blue Bloods (my current favorite Cop Show). And Gordon Clapp as the Chicago Fire Chaplain...what a terrific casting for this special actor.
But, most of all, it was the casting of bit & supporting actors that set NYPD Blue apart. So many have gone on to significant careers in major TV (and film) productions.
Watching these episodes now for the 3rd (and 4th) time, I find myself astounded by the quality of each episode, of each scene!
Please Fox - If you don't have any plans to release the remaining 8 seasons, GET OUT !! Sell the rights to another stiudio which has the marketing skils and the ability to recognize a great product when they see it.
The streaming is flawless on my ROKU audio & video is perfect . I started with the first season's show 1. Since Amazon has all the seasons I am now hooked I am watching all the shows. There is a even flow linking each show with a fine cast.
