5.0 out of 5 stars
Best NY Cop Drama of all Time, 29 Mar. 2005
Compelling, Superb, Gritty. Denis Franz simply shines as the morose sipowicz, but this was surely David Caruso's finest hour, of any film or tv performance as the heroic john kelly.
Is this is a realistic portrait of the midtown precinct pre-911? I dont know, much was made of the phrase 'reach out' being false. I dont care, its superb prime-time us tv at its best. Its kicks Law and Order into touch, no question.
On the other hand, my girlfriend calls this NYPD Boring, and cant stand it. You decide...
