"...Dennis Franz's ornery, bigoted, alcoholic Andy Sipowicz remains one of prime time's most compelling characters..."
Before it even appeared on the airwaves, NYPD BLUE was the television's most controversial show in 1993. The show broke new ground and, like its characters Sipowicz (Dennis Franz) and Detective John Kelly (David Caruso), it didn't play by the rules. Weaving nudity and foul language into storylines that tackled issues such as vigilante violence, homosexuality, and prostitution, the cop series became a huge hit with an audience who craved reality. This first season also includes FRIENDS star David Schwimmer in the recurring role of 4B, an unsteady mugging victim. Twenty-two episodes make up this explosive first season.
