Fans had to wait two and a half years for the third series on DVD. The distributor argued that sales of Series 1 and 2 were not good enough to justify the release of the rest. This was probably due to the constant re-runs on cable channels especially in the US. Finally they came to their senses and offered us a treat!
NYPD Blue is the best TV show ever, and I'm not just talking police drama! Sipowicz (Dennis Franz)is a legend, the rest of the cast are brilliant, story-lines are fantastic with scripts to match...
Over twenty hours of fun and excitement. Can't wait. Bring on the rest!!!!

Format: DVD
this season of nypd blue is a little deceptive. after quickly ploughing through the first 2 seasons its been a long long wait for this next installment. this 'ramping' up of expectation can be difficult to fulfill & at first it may seem a bit of a disapointment but this is simply due to the fact that you are now familiar & comfortable with the characters and the opening 2 or 3 episodes are a little slower than usual. this soon gives way to some terrific story lines & the tension builds as the series plays out. all involved are on top form & even this many years on this is edgy, provocotive & controvertial,( one characters racist tendencies come to the fore, tagedy takes place & the darker side of a few begin to be seen),.

the extras are good if not great but who cares? if your a fan then this is essential stuff after such a frustrating wait. if your new to nypd blue then starting with series 3 isn't a disaster but starting with series' 1 & 2 would give you a greater appreciation of what happens, all the characters have a long arc that slowly builds & makes for a depth that few series before or since can match.

this is fully recommended, just be prepared for sleepless nights spent watching " just one more episode."

Finally. Like so many others I have been waiting for the release of this 3rd season DVD collection!This is the finest cop show ever made. Steven Bochco is spot on with this genre. The very sad thing with this show is that viewers in the UK have been subject to very sporadic showing of the series, making way for the many reality TV shows thrown upon us. If you haven't seen this show before you really are missing out on engaging stories, mesmerising gritty acting and likeable if not loveable (Andy Sipowicz) characters. This show has risen to a cult status in the UK. I really hope they continue to release the DVD boxsets now the show has finished. Since the airing of NYPD there have been several police, crime, forensic, legal shows but they never seem to measure up to NYPD which consitently feels like the 'Original' of them all. I really do recommend you buy this - you will be hooked. Enjoy!

The third series of NYPD blue saw the show become far more episodic in structure than the towering first season or the David Caruso episodes of the second season. There are a few episodes that don't start 'previously on NYPD Blue' in Arthur Fancy's manly voice, which means they are total stand alones, not part of a developing story arc.

It's still a five star. Series one was probably a five plus, but no matter. The quality of the acting and the storytelling is breath-takingly brilliant, held together by a towering performance by Dennis Franz as Andy Sipowicz, the alcoholic cop with a real flair for the bon mot.

The best episodes are at the end, when Andy's son - imaginatively handled Andy junior - is killed. Franz gets to act his socks off in a performance of such moving pathos it's like watching your Dad cry.

Gordon Clapp, as nervous, allergy-plagued detective Medavoy also shines and Jimmy Smits, probably realising he's walked into the hardest place to impress since Lee Strasberg closed his studio, is suitably buttoned down as the romantic lead and all round good guy, Bobby Simone.

NYPD Blue is pretty right wing. It is. The skells are portrayed as pure evil, an evil that is not grounded in their social circumstances or personal issues. The detectives are all good guys. The bosses are all weasels, with the exception of Fancy. It is not a compromised moral landscape like 'The Shield' or 'The Wire,' but it oozes gritty realism. Beating on them, denying them their rights to legal counsel (or medical treatment in the opener) is ok, because they are bad!

My son watched Sipowicz slapping a guy round the head and asked me 'can the police do that?'. Er....no son.

However the drama is so convincing that such issues can be put aside.

As powerful as remembered, this portrayal of NY police officers one they themselves recognized.

22 episodes. The bonuses are of particular interest. These were recorded years later at the series' end. Creator Steven Bochco and members of the cast look back at Season 3, assessing its trends and achievements. Bochco declares the show, already so good, was steadily maturing - main characters well established and full of potential, camera work less frenetic, storylines better paced.

In the cramped precinct work area, focus remains largely on Andy Sipowicz - a cop who gets results (one way and another), but the man himself seriously flawed. A reformed alcoholic, he remains a mass of prejudices, temper ever likely to erupt. Can he now be mellowing - his new wife Sylvia a civilizing influence, partner Bobby Simone (Jimmy Smits excellent) helping to bring out his best. Then there is the strong relationship developing with Andy Jnr, the son neglected for so many years.

Grim murder cases, often solved that very day - thanks to contacts with local low life (some decidedly Runyonesque). As ever, interviews are grippingly depicted - a range of techniques used to elicit the truth, hardened criminals suddenly realizing they have been outmanoeuvred.

Great scripts. Fine cast. Note the undercurrents - so much conveyed by a look and a gesture. This is communication by shorthand - subtle interplay by actors who fit their roles like a glove.

Amongst the extra features the one with Dennis Franz and Michael DeLuise was especially enjoyed. The actors recall with warmth how greatly they looked forward to their father and son scenes, these amongst the season's particular strengths.
