Episode Summary

EDIT
James goes to visit his brother but finds the super at the building is a cop who is on the take and slowly forcing tenants out. Det. Stillwell's pranks become a nuisance for everyone. Martinez's brother's building is the scene of an "accidental" death that convinces him the cop is bad. James' father comes down on him for not keeping an eye on his brother. John contacts an old friend who's in IAB about Martinez's theories, but to protect Martinez from IAB, John takes a tape recorder in and gets Hanlon to talk. Laura's new job as an ADA takes a twist as she is assigned a case that involves Giardella.moreless

    I thought this was a very good episode. I always liked NYPD Blue from the beginning. NYPD Blue always brought the stories home and showed you some of the personal life. This episode dealt with Martinez' family and his brother with doing drugs. I like the way Kelly stood up for him so he didn't have to wear a wire against the ex-cop landlord, (it would be nice if David Caruso showed the same character as Kelly I'm not a Caruso fan at all) I liked the talk between Kelly and Martinez and how Martinez got his brother into rehab and made his father see that the brother needed help. The first season is my least favorite mainly because of Caruso, but I still like this show.moreless
