I am really disappointed with "Hill Street Blues." When "Hill Street" was on NBC, I was not old enough to understand what it was all about. After hearing all those rave reviews, I was sure Channel 13 had a show worth seeing. But as I watch it, I can't seem to stay awake. My brother thinks it deals with some controversial topics. However, I think differently. During the roll call, I would be lucky to catch one or two words that the sergeant is saying. Halfway through the thing, I don't even know what the plot is about. Moreover, there are 13 people in the credits. That place is too crowded. "Hill Street Blues" is a flop, second only to "Star Trek: The Next Generation," which is so bad the bridge should be renamed the "lounge." It has none of the class of the original series with William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy.
