NYPD Blue

This was one of my favorite shows. I was sad to see it's final episode this evening. It began, I think, as a cautionary tale: don't turn into Sipowitz. But it ended as a different kind of story: anyone can make good on a second (or third or fourth) chance. It was about a guy who wanted to do good, but almost let the demons get the better of him. The show taught, I think, that you have to give in to your weaknesses one way or another. You can "give it up" that you're a drunk and can never take a drink again, or you can give it up by letting your fear control you and boozing it up. Or whatever the problem. Plaid, for example.
