Storyline

Tony Baretta is a street-smart, maverick undercover cop with the NYPD, who won't hesitate for a second to toss the rule book out the window if it stands between himself and taking some bad guy off the street. His unconventional methods often land him in hot water with his boss (Inspector Schiller, later Lt. Brubaker), but as long as Baretta was getting the job done, there wasn't much they could do. Ex-cop Billy and Huggy Bear-wannabe Rooster were Baretta's main men on the street, and Fred was his pet cockatoo. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

It doesn't get much better.
22 May 2000 | by (St. Louis, Missouri) – See all my reviews

Baretta has always been my favorite TV show. The character, Tony Baretta, created by Stephen J. Cannell and played so perfectly by Robert Blake, is one of the finest characters I've ever seen. The titles of the episodes are creative, the plots are very interesting, and the show provides a good balance of emotion. Baretta had a big influence on my early writing style. I still value the show today. >
