About NYPD Blue

“This police drama contains adult language and scenes with partial nudity. Viewer discretion is advised.”

The potential images those words created alone caused more controversy for this series, before it had even premiered. The “Bible Belt” was up in arms and no-one had even seen an episode. In most of those southern states the local ABC affiliates refused to carry the show, which was a shame because aside from a “little” bare flesh and a couple of harsh words, they missed out on a quality television show. Of course it wasn’t long before they realized it really was no big deal. Late during the first season, Steven Bochco said during an acceptance speech at the 20th Annual People’s Choice Awards:

“In spite of those who seek to legislate what we can and cannot see on our own television sets in the privacy of our own homes. NYPD Blue has succeeded because the American people, properly so, prefer to judge for themselves.”
