    I watched maybe 30 seconds of the first episode When it originally came out. Shows like NYPD Blue and LA Law were considered so innovative at the time I think they just thought they could pull it off. I believe it was produced by the same people who did those two shows although I'm too lazy to look it up and verify.

    Yea, it was Steven Bochco. He did Hill Street Blues too. They gave him a development deal for 10 shows after that and LA Law went over well, so he just put anything that popped into his head into production.

    Bochco was an 80s legend and probably enjoyed the pleausures of many young boys

    I felt like I already put on quite the dog and pony show for these old timers.

    They are so miserable, the highlight of their day is moving a thread and rigging polls.
