Editor's NoteThis groundbreaking and critically adored crime drama from super-producer Stephen Bochco (NYPD BLUE) aired from 1981 to 1986, and boasted one of the first ensemble casts on TV. Set in a fictional town based on Chicago, the action centered on a chaotic police precinct torn by crime and racial tension, and provided a very realistic view of the private and work lives of everyone from the beat cops to the police captain. HILL STREET BLUES established the fast-paced, gritty, verité style that would spawn countless imitators. In the second season, the relentless barrage of crime continues, beginning when an ex-gang leader returns and reclaims his place at the top of the Black Arrow gang.
