** The show's disappearance from American cable and broadcast syndication didn't help matters. Still, David Milch's continued attempts at high concept HBO dramas could help renew interest, especially now that the whole series (including the last 4 seasons in HD) is on Amazon Prime Instant Streaming. It's one of their few notable titles not available on competitor Netflix Watch Instantly.

* TearJerker: Simone's [[ADeathInTheLimelight Death Episode]] (though Andy Jr. and Sylvia's deaths hit hard as well)
* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The fact that cars and fashions in the first six seasons are typical for TheNineties is not unexpected. However, the show also documents [[TechnologyMarchesOn the cellphone revolution]]: In the first seasons, the detectives don't have cellphones but have to look for payphones if they are not carrying a walkie-talkie. The squad later gets ''one'' cellphone that has to be checked out if a detective needs it, and towards the end of the series everybody has their own personal cellphone.

** Regardless of what you think of the quality of the later seasons, the show did lose some very colourful characters (and good actors), and its tone did change a lot, going from edgy and avant-garde to being one CrimeTimeSoap among many.

[[FollowTheLeader How much of this is actually the show's own fault with respect to the latter point is debatable.]]
