Click here for our farewell salute to the
show, including the summary/review of the series finale.
Howdy. My name's Alan Sepinwall and I'll be your cruise director on
this voyage through the seas of NYPD
Blue. There are two very important things you need to know
about (so important, in fact, that I'm going to put them in bigger
typeface so people don't miss them):
IMPORTANT FACT #1: I have NO involvement with the show
whatsoever, so sending me
story ideas, complaints, or fan mail won't do anyone any good. (For the
proper address to send mail to Bochco Productions, check the FAQ.)
IMPORTANT FACT #2: I can NOT lend people episodes on tape, so
please don't ask me. I will not respond to any requests. (Again, check the
FAQ for the best method of getting tapes.)
Now that that's out of the way, if you have any other questions about me,
try my homepage. And if you're
you're interested in what I do for a living, you can go to the website
Star-Ledger, which finally has my column on-line.
Here's the list of goodies...
- The NYPD Blue
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) list is your one-stop shopping
place for both the latest news and all those nagging questions you have
about the show. Wondering why James McDaniel left? Want to know what
"skell" means? Do you think
Delaney and Dana Delany are related? The FAQ explains all -- and probably
answers some questions you didn't even have. It also has links to every
show-related resource on the Internet, biographies of all the characters,
and other goodies. If you're in a hurry, go to
the mini-FAQ, which contains answers
the handful of most-asked questions. PLEASE DO NOT E-MAIL ME QUESTIONS
ABOUT THE SHOW BEFORE YOU'VE READ THE FAQ.
- The episode
which is located at another site, but has detailed cast and plot listings
for every episode. It's the best place to find the name of that guest star
you liked, the titles of episodes, who wrote and directed, and a lot more.
- alt.tv.nypd-blue is the
newsgroup that inspired this webpage, and still the best place to talk
about the show on-line. If you can't access it directly, go to
to read the most recent messages.
- Biographies of all the characters and
the actors who play them.
- Links to other related NYPD Blue
pages, including ABC's official site, a page for pictures and fanpages
devoted to specific actors.
- The show's theme song, in both .au and .wav format.
- Essays I and other people have written
about the show over the years.
- The NYPD Blue
Drinking Game, for hours and hours of fun and intoxication.
- Reviews are this
site's reason for being. I summarized and/or
reviewed virtually every
episode of the show from seasons one through six, and Amanda Wilson has
been doing it ever since. The current season's reviews are on this page;
click on the above link for all the old ones.
