"Let's be careful out there."
So ends each roll call session at the Hill Street station house. As the cops and detectives head out into the streets, Captain Frank Furillo begins the delicate balancing act of providing enough protection for the law-abiding citizens without inciting the neighborhood gangs and local criminal elements who are openly hostile towards any police presence. Yet as dangerous as his inner-city precinct can be, Furillo's biggest battles often involve protecting his own cops from the Public Defender's office, self-serving bureaucrats, and even each other.

Still the best
Nothing about Hill Street Blues was ordinary when it came out, yet today its methods are commonplace. This is a truly original program from the ground up. The plot lines are in serial form; the character development is extrodinary; the camera work created a new standard for cinematography. This program din't simply raise the bar - it threw out the bar and created a brand new one. Like the Beatles, it stands the test of time; like Hendrix, its revolutionary technique has been mimiced throught the years. A true classic!
A True Classic
I was in Junior High when this show was on the air, and remember it as one of the best shows of its day. It really broke new ground and went where cop shows had never gone before. Before "Hill Street" the average cop show was "Adam 12" or "Chips". Because of "Hill Street" the definition of a cop drama was born.
This show is worth the time and money. What I do not understand was in it's original run it was on N.B.C. not FOX??
