Nypd Blue (Season 2) DVD Review
Recipient of 13 Golden Globe and 84 Emmy nominations, including five for Best TV Series (Drama), NYPD Blue is widely regarded as one of the best prime time dramatic series in TV history. The show is also one of the most controversial as well. Before its initial release in Fall 1993, NYPD Blue became the subject of a nationwide controversy stemming from its use of foul language and improper visual scenes. The series prompted a national debate on what constitutes proper TV programming and whether or not government censorship should be involved. All this happened before the first episode ever aired! "Family values" interest groups attacked ABC for releasing the show, but when NYPD Blue proved itself to be mild by today's standards, the publicity only helped to propel the police drama series to the apex of the Nielsen ratings, where it remained for twelve seasons… The NYPD Blue (Season 2) DVD features a number of dramatic episodes including the season premiere "Trials & Tribulations" in which Kelley's testimony on Licalsi's behalf triggers an Internal Affairs investigation and Sipowicz tries to enlist the help of an abused woman (fearful of her husband) whose testimony is badly needed. Meanwhile, Sipowicz's AA sponsor wants him to agree to the boilerplate recovery contract before reconstituting his relationship with Sylvia… Other notable episodes from Season 2 include "The Final Adjustment" in which Simone and Sipowicz investigate a successful chiropractor suspected of murdering his wife, and "Bombs Away" in which the two detectives apprehend a Rumanian immigrant with a woman locked in his trunk and the man turns out to be a fugitive terrorist… Below is a list of episodes included on the NYPD Blue (Season 2) DVD: Episode 23 (Trials & Tribulations) Air Date: 10-11-1994 Episode 24 (From Whom the Skell Rolls) Air Date: 10-18-1994 Episode 25 (Cop Suey) Air Date: 10-25-1994 Episode 26 (Dead and Gone) Air Date: 11-01-1994 Episode 27 (Simone Says) Air Date: 11-15-1994 Episode 28 (The Final Adjustment) Air Date: 11-22-1994 Episode 29 (Double Abandando) Air Date: 11-29-1994 Episode 30 (You Bet Your Life) Air Date: 12-06-1994 Episode 31 (Don We Now Our Gay Apparel) Air Date: 01-03-1995 Episode 32 (In the Butt, Bob) Air Date: 01-10-1995 Episode 33 (Vishy-Vashy-Vinny) Air Date: 01-17-1995 Episode 34 (Large Mouth Bass) Air Date: 02-07-1995 Episode 35 (Travels with Andy) Air Date: 02-14-1995 Episode 36 (A Murder with Teeth in It) Air Date: 02-21-1995 Episode 37 (Bombs Away) Air Date: 02-28-1995 Episode 38 (UnAmerican Graffiti) Air Date: 03-14-1995 Episode 39 (Dirty Socks) Air Date: 03-21-1995 Episode 40 (Innuendo) Air Date: 04-04-1995 Episode 41 (Boxer Rebellion) Air Date: 05-02-1995 Episode 42 (The Bookie and Kooky Cookie) Air Date: 05-09-1995 Episode 43 (The Bank Dick) Air Date: 05-16-1995 Episode 44 (A.
