Speaking of David Milch being a heartless bastard...when Andy Jr gets killed on NYPD Blue. The entire cast emotes off the chart (Donna Abandando can barely hold it together).
Nice one. Andy Jr. was one of my favorite subplots of the first few seasons of NYPD Blue, the actor played him as such a sweet kid, it was unreal.
Far superior to Simone's death, which was a bit overdone (though I can remember Dan Dierdorf praising it to high heaves on a MNF broadcast, strange thing to remember)
