Storyline

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 John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

Trivia

When Harris is asked to produce a porn film for an undercover sting, he uses the name "Starry Night Productions" as his cover. Years later, show writer Reinhold Weege uses the name for his own production company, which produced "Night Court." This 'connection' may account for many of the surreal (and humorous) elements found on both shows. See more »

One of the best. MUCH MUCH better then Friends!!



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!!!
