Singing the Blues in Red
Couldn't quite place the name until I scrolled down and of course...Brilliant '80s telly and despite being in our 20s, and young, free and single, Hill Street Blues was worth staying in for.
Although I loved Hill Street, for me his masterpiece was NYPD Blue. Denis Franz was my hero, and the redemptive arc of his character, Andy Sipowicz, over the show's run - from a degenerate, sexist, racist, alcoholic to a respectable role model who ends up running the department was like nothing else I've seen on TV. Still possibly my favourite TV show ever.
