Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The 1995-96 season sees big changes, especially in the life of Detective Andy Sipowicz Dennis Franz. His second wife, Assistant District Attorney Sylvia Costas Sharon Lawrence, gives birth to a son, Theo, and Andy is ecstatic. But that all changes in a powerful, season-ending trio of episodes. "A Death in the Family" finds Sipowicz and partner Bobby Simone Jimmy Smits investigating the killing of an off-duty police trainee -- Andy's son from his first marriage. The resulting grief sends the recovering alcoholic back to the bottle, and in "Closing Time" he nearly gets thrown off the force when he loses his gun to thugs after sustaining a beating while drunk. The heart-wrenching last installment of the year, "He's Not Guilty, He's My Brother," finds Andy swearing off booze again and returning to his wife and newborn son, determined to cope with his loss and move on with his life. This helped Franz earn the second of his four Outstanding Lead Actor Emmys for his portrayal of the flawed detective. Season 3 also sees the introduction of Administrative Assistant John Irvin Bill Brochtrup, who departs at year's end but returns later in the series. Also saying goodbye is Irvin's predecessor, Donna Abandando Gail O'Grady, who leaves the 15th Precinct after her romance with detective Greg Medavoy Gordon Clapp goes south. On the brighter side, the romance between Bobby and Detective Diane Russell Kim Delaney heats up as the season progresses and she, too, deals with alcohol-abuse issues. The 22 hour-long shows collected in this set are among the very best this outstanding series had to offer; there isn't a weak one in the bunch.

    FINALLY...Blue Season 3

    It's hard to believe that it's been 2.5 years since season 2 came out. I honestly didn't think any additional seasons would come out. I've written FOX home video at least 3 times (once since the show went off the air) asking about additional seasons. I was always told "no plans as of now." Now, with the series gone, the show can be enjoyed, uncut, on DVD. It's been so long since I've seen these episodes, I forgot which ones were in season 3. I know Andy Jr. dies and Theo is born in season 3. The Dennis Franz/Jimmy Smits era was NYPD Blue in it's prime. 2/21 can't get here soon enough. Hopefully season 4 is on the near horizon.
