This was a great cop drama. It was a great show because it didn't just focus on trying to catch bad guys (although is was cool watching the investigative work), but it also really focused on the character's personal lives--their relationships, their struggles, the challenge of trying to balance "the job" with family. And through the years, as new characters were added, those characters were just as engaging as characters in previous seasons who had left. Andy Sipowicz is an especially interesting character--kind of gruff and sometimes offensive, but really a teddy bear on the inside who struggles with insecurities. Brilliant show.
