Another NYPD Blue Season filled with great plot lines, and some of the funniest episodes of the entire series. After Eddie Gibson takes command of the 15th Detective Squad, he does the Chief of Personnel a favor by hiring his nephew, Stan Hatcher, which is a total debacle, as Hatcher has no business being a cop, as is soon revealed. The way that whole thing unravels, how it nearly brings Andy Sipowicz to ruin...very interesting.

And Eddie Gibson's African Grey Parrot, named "The Colonel" provides some of the funniest episodes, after someone mysteriously teaches the Colonel to repeat the word, douchebag, over and over, at the most inopportune times. Oh boy! My sides still hurt.

The eleventh season of NYPD Blue is filled with high drama, strong plotlines, and great acting. This was the last season for Esai Morales as Lt. Tony Rodriguez. After Capt. Fraker is acquitted of attempted murder, Rodriguez grows embittered with the job and puts in his papers. But not before starting a romance with Det. Rita Ortiz on his way out. Andy and Connie decide to get married after discovering that Connie's pregnant with yet another son for Andy. Before she goes, though, a bomber handcuffs himself to her in the squad room in one of the season's most intense episodes. Baldwin begins a long storyline involving a 13-year-old boy named Michael who witnesses his father Craig kill Michael's mother. After Lt. Rodriguez leaves the squad, none other than loudmouth Eddie Gibson is named the new squad commander. As Andy asks, is it April Fool's Day? This move leads to Eddie bringing in Stan Hatcher as a new detective, which begins another long storyline pitting Stan against Andy in a battle for the squad. Zack Morris, I mean John Clark, continues to develop as a solid detective, despite getting distracted by his new girlfriend, Doctor Jennifer Devlin. This also turns into an extended story, as John finds himself trying to save another loved one from their own demons. And, one of the real highlights of the season, Diane Russell guests in several consecutive episodes! She starts to seem like a part of the squad again around the third episode. It's great seeing her character come back, as they rarely bring anyone back on this show. Even though several key castmembers had left by Season 11, the writers and core of the show kept it alive and well during its last couple years. Season 12 would be the final season, but it was as strong as ever right up to the end. Season 11 proves it one episode after another.

As I have said in my reviews of other seasons of "NYPD Blue," it is my opinion that this is the finest hour-long television program of any kind ever broadcast on commercial television in the United States. Season 11 is no exception.

Season eleven sees the departure of Lt. Rodriguez after the evil Captain Fraker is inexplicably acquitted of his attempted murder. It sees him being replaced by the quintessentially incompetent Eddie Gibson, who Sipowicz previously arranged to get promoted to Sergeant in anticipation of his retirement (and who inexplicably disappears, along with the interesting detective who replaced the luscious pregnant Charlotte Ross/Connie McDowell, the seemingly lesbian Kelly Ronson, played by Jessalyn Gilsig, following season 11).

It also introduces you to the most evil detective in the whole history of NYPD Blue, Detective Stan Hatcher, who uses his unwitting uncle, the Chief of Personnel, to get Sipowicz transferred to the morgue.

You also see the rapid fall of Sipowicz's partner, Detective John Clark Jr. (Mark-Paul Gosselar), whose bipolar but excruciatingly beautiful and outrageously hot girlfriend, Dr. Jennifer Devlin (Chandra West), commits suicide, which on the heels of the suicide of his father becomes the straw that breaks John's camel's back.

This whole series, season one start to season twelve finish, is a real treat. I LOVE it that Amazon Prime offers it all up for free, in genuinely excellent technical quality.

An ageless cop show.......since there's 12 seasons, it gets a bit formulaic, but after 10 years, it's still a solid show/ It's also one of the best binge-watching series out there. It has a superb opening theme song (Mike Post). The best line ever delivered in television: Andy's son walks in on Andy's new wife (Charlotte Ross...hotter then hell and naked as a jaybird) preparing to shower. Later, in the squad room, Andy's wife (who's also a cop) tries to engage Andy about how his son is, and asks, "did you take Theo to school?" Andy, dead-panned, responds, "Nope. Took him straight to Hooters.....he insisted."

Main characters get under your skin, and are replaced or die off. You'll be skeptical about whether the replacement character will work, but they all do. Start with the first season if you can, and watch them in order. But if you can't, every episode holds it's own.

This was a series that went for over 10 years and never got stale or boring. Xlnt writing along with star quality acting. A combination
that very seldom meshes in today's entertainment world. I wish it could come back.
