02/28/2005: Thought for the Day:
As NYPD Blue leaves the air next Tuesday, the 12-year-old cop show will be laureled with words like "gritty" and "uncompromising." That feels half-right. NYPD Blue was uncompromising, all right, but only when it came to love scenes. The brainchild of David Milch and Steven Bochco, Blue was one of network television's great erotic experiments. Its nudity will linger long after its gumshoeing fades. Such brazen sexuality takes a certain degree of skill when one of your romantic leads (Dennis Franz) looks like a lightly medicated version of Captain Kangaroo.
