I always give seasons of "NYPD Blue" five stars, because every season it was on it was the best program being broadcast on network television.
Season 6 is riddled with sadness and loss. First, Bobby Simone falls ill and dies. Diane Russell struggles all season long to cope, and Sipowicz, even in his own grief over the loss of his partner, has to break in his new partner, Danny Sorensen. The last half of the season is consumed with the degeneration of the squad's PAA, Delores Mayo, who falls to becoming a junkie and a prostitute, finally to be murdered by an excessively wealthy and prominent trick, who serves her a hotshot of heroin just to watch her die. This thread culminates with the horrifying death in the courtroom hallway of Andy's loving wife, ADA Sylvia Costas, played by the always delicious Sharon Lawrence, who shines in every role she ever plays but never better than here.
This is the saddest season, and therefore it is my least favorite of...
This was a huge transition season for the series. Bobby Simone (Jimmy Smits) falls ill and dies, which are certainly among the most powerful episodes for the show. Danny Sorenson (Ricky Shroder) comes on to replace Bobby with tension between him and Diane Russell (Kim Delaney) as Diane tries to recover from the loss of Bobby. Of course, the season wouldn't be complete without another tragedy for the squad as Asst. District Attorney Costas (Sharon Lawrence) gets shot to death in a courthouse, leaving Andy Sipowicz (Dennis Franz) alone to take care of their child and hopefully avoid any fallback into alcoholism. This certainly ranks among the top 3 seasons for the show.
I think NYPD BLUE has become lost in history because of the fact that it had a very few scenes that barely showed any skin. Thank you for the warning as I didn't need to see Dennis Franz's butt. Yet I did. There it was. Moving past the sky Blue reputation, this is a fantastic show centering around one of the finest characters in the history of dramatic TV, Andy Sipowicz. Throughout the series, he has a bevy of partners from David Caruso to Jimmy Smits to Rick Schroder and Mark-Paul Gosselaar (so, he basically paired with the guy from CSI: Miami, LA Law, Silver Spoons and Saved by the Bell) and transformed from a racist, drunk who was inches from being thrown off the force, to a loving husband, ex-husband, father and husband again (to Charlotte Ross in her physical prime - man, sign me up!). When asked to name the show that most resembles real life case solving, real loife detectives and police officers chose NYPD Blue by a mile. (SPOILER) Season 6 marks the end of Jimmy Smits runom...
