Reviews - What do customers think about What Would Sipowicz Do?: Race, Rights and Redemption in NYPD Blue (Smart Pop series)?
Not Enough Sipowicz Dec 14, 2005
I was disappointed by this book. It was not what I thought it was going to be. I love NYPD Blue and I love Sipowicz. I think Sipowicz is the most interesting, complex, and real character on television. I found that many of the essays (the book is comprised of 16 essays on different themes in NYPD Blue) use Sipowicz and NYPD Blue merely as a launching pad to discuss more general topics. For example one chapter starts off discussing Sipowicz's interaction with AA, but then turns into an essay on AA, not on Sipowicz or NYPD Blue. There's not enough Sipowicz in this book for me.
