Barney Miller is the kind of cop we'd all like to run into. He is always sensible. He maintains order over a squad room of detectives who gamble for a hobby, get hit on by anything in skirts, go to renaissance philosophy conventions for fun, and would really prefer to be writing. Nearly all of the action takes place in the squad room where the citizens and criminals are brought in to complicate the mix. Written by

Like many other episodic shows of the period the show "recycled" actors in various roles. For example: Florence Halop appeared as Ms. Mable Kleiner, Mrs. Pierce, Evelyn Holly, Karen Golden, Wanda LaMear and Wilma Kestner. Don Calfa appeared as Mr. DiLucca, Angelo Dodi, Leon Bidell, Calvin J. Kendall, Gilbert Lesco, Arthur Thompson and Eddie. See more »

How come there are not more TV shows like Barny Miller? This was one of the best TV shows on TV. The writing and characters were fantastic and even though it has a 1970's feel and look to it, the show still packs a punch.
Barney Miller dealt with important topics as gay police officers and the fact that even though they are gay, they are still valuable members of society.
There are not really and funny shows anymore. What is a TV viewer suppose to watch? Friends?? Paris Hilton washing a cow. Please give me something!!!
