    NYPD Blue reboot gets pilot

    https://variety.com/2018/tv/news/nyp...mpression=true

    First thing I wondered was if Theo was the lead and he is! His backstory now is that after his older brother and mother were killed he now has to solve his fathers murder.

    The original was so bold and ahead of its time. Now what made it so unique has been done so much and gone so extreme. Hope it can be a solid detective show and try to be as barrier breaking as the original.

    See, that's the thing that happens when I try to watch NYPD Blue. There have been so many imitators over the years that none of it really wows me. I'm sure some of the more TV-MA elements shocked audiences but we get that so much nowadays on cable and streaming. Yet there are episodes of Homicide that feel like they haven't aged a day. I don't get that with Blue but maybe I need to watch the right episodes.

    Also, wasn't one of the complaints about the original that they piled on tragedy after tragedy on Sipowicz? How sad that the curse has been transferred from father to son.

    I just recently rewatched seasons 3-7 in their entirety and it was still very compelling to me! The harshness of the relationships was still surprising. The hatred Sipowicz has for so many is still rarely seen. The bitterness and self destructive tendencies.

    Season 6 has the most tragedy but the way all the stories tie into each other made the whole issue of Multiple deaths less of an issue seeing how it all unfolded. But yes after it was over it was like “that was a lot!”

    ‘NYPD Blue’: Alona Tal To Star In ABC Reboot Pilot

    Alona Tal (SEAL Team, Hand of God) is the first actor cast in ABC’s pilot NYPD Blue, a new iteration of the iconic cop drama.

    Tal will play one of the four main roles and the female lead in the sequel, which revolves around Theo, the son of Dennis Franz’s Detective Andy Sipowicz character from the original series, who tries to earn his detective shield and work in the 15th squad while investigating his father’s murder.

    Tal will play Detective Nicole Lazarus, one of the detectives working out of the 15th Precinct. Nicole has a tangled personal life; her soon-to-be-ex-husband is divorcing her, and he’s trying to get his mitts on a slice of her pension. She’s trying to ease the pain by having a no-strings affair.
