33rd Precinct - The police drama JOE
BASH/ABC/1986 starred Peter Boyle as cynical, old NYPD police officer at the
33rd Precinct whose
days of walking the beat are soon to end when his nearing retirement kicks-in.
NYPD Officer Joe Bash
Unfortunately, just when Joe thinks his last days on the force will be easy,
he is teamed with a new partner named Officer Willie Smith (Andrew Rubin), who
is young, eager and full of energy, all qualities Joe no longer possess.
While Joe thinks it is OK to take local gratuities like candy and food from
local ghetto merchants or help himself to money discovered in the apartment of a
dead person, rookie Smith - who is supposed to learn from his older
partner - has reservations to such activities. With Smith around Joe's values are being challenged and
maybe that's a good thing.
For romance, the divorced and lonely Joe finds what love he can with
Lorna (DeLane Matthews), a local hooker.
Other officers on duty at the 33rd precinct included:
- Val Bisoglio as Sgt. Carmine DiSalvo
- Michael Cavanaugh as Lt. Pendleton
