NYPD (too) Blue?

Today on the PhilCast one of the stories I'll be covering is about the Supreme Court taking up the case of how the government still regulates 'swear words' and 'naughty stuff' on prime-time, over-the-air TV.

Part of the springboard to all this kicks back to an episode of the old detective show NYPD Blue, one in which a naked butt was full moon on the full screen. Unheard of stuff at the time!

Now I recall that the cutting-edge show once did show the cranky Det. Sipowitz's butt, BUT it was actually a scene with actress Kim Delaney that is at issue here.

Remember she played Det. Diane Russell on that show?

One word: HOT!

That was a great show. I never missed it. And just working on this story for the PhilCast today brought back all kinds of memories from that show.

I'm not sure there is anything like it on TV now, although I admit I don't watch much any longer.

Gist of what the court has to decide here is whether or not the government should continue to have the right to sensor in prime-time when there is already so much 'naughty' stuff on cable and elsewhere in plain view all the time.

My take....coming up on the show today.
