Det. Leonard Briscoe Seasons: 3-present What to watch for: Sarcastic comments References to Gloria References to being a recovering alcoholic References to ex-wives/marraige/divorce Police pin on lapel What I think: Lennie is cool. He's a seasoned cop with a sense of humor. There's always room for another wise crack. Det. Phillip Ceretta Seasons: 2-3 What to watch for: Big furry hat Cheerful disposition Politeness Overall pleasant personality What I think: Phil almost always has a smile on his face. He's simply a nice guy, and it shows. Capt. Donald Cragen Seasons: 1-4 What to watch for: Use of the word "freaking" Use of the word "bupkes" His ever-present suspenders References to his superiors giving him grief over open cases What I think: Don is a piece of work. His sarcasm has a lighter quality than Lennie's, but it's still very amusing. He has a way of being both a friend, and still remain a superior, to the officers under him. Det. Reyaldo Curtis Seasons: 6-present What to watch for: Using his cell phone/laptop Appearances of his wife/children Emotion? (I haven't seen any yet.) What I think: He's a weak character. I don't believe he's NYPD because he's too.. relaxed. Even Lennie, who's usually pretty laid back, has a certain amount of his guard up at all times. Either Rey is niave or he is stupid. Det. Maxwell Greevey Season: 1 What to watch for: Smoking a cigar Wearing his fedora Treating Mike like a kid (ie inexperienced) Arguing with Mike What I think: I like Max too. To me, he seems like a father figure for Mike. Someone to show him the ropes. He's a nice guy who's passionate about his work. Det. Michael Logan Seasons: 1-5 What to watch for: His trusty brown leather jacket Plaid ties American flag pin on his lapel Playing with the ring on his finger That "head shake" thing he does The famous "Logan's Thumb" Wiping his mouth this his hand Roughing up perps (includes *any* physical contact with suspect) References to girlfriends References to his mother or father. Tousled hair What I think: Ok, you got me. He's my favorite. I adore Mike Logan. He has my temper, though I don't get quite as violent. Mikey likes his job and he's good at it. He's also pretty damn good-looking with that dark hair, those hazel eyes...I'm getting a little carried away. Looking past his appearance, Mike is a dedicated cop who's determined to catch the bad guys. Lt. Anita VanBuren Seasons: 4-present What to watch for: References to her kids Tension between her and Mike Sticking up for those under her command What I think: Anita is ok. I like Don better, but she's a good replacement. She is an intelligent woman who has overcome great hardships to reach her present position.
Det Anthony Profaci Seasons: 1-present What to watch for: Delivering crucial evidence Being in the presence of food (eating, buying, delivering, whatever) Wearing sweater vests Tailing suspects His shoulder holster References to Shirley What I think: Profaci is Da Man. I absolutely love this guy! He's cute in that teddy bear-ish way. I just want to bring him home and cuddle him! ME Rogers Seasons: 1-present (I think) What to watch for: Matching bullets to guns Use of cliches Flirting with Mike What I think. Rogers is a definite plus. She's smart 'n sassy. She knows what she's doing, she's efficient, and she still has time to hit on Logan...what a woman!
