It Wasn't "Barney Miller" .... but Not Bad.
23 December 2005 | by (Phx. Arizona ("Arizona Smells Funny"!- Homer Simpson)) – See all my reviews

Park Place was a short lived CBS series in early 1981. Teamed up with Marla Gibbs's,"Checking In" (her "The Jeffersons" spin-off)this show and hers both became infamous TV history by both being canceled in just 4 weeks. On "Park Place" modern day lawyers took on cases by the "take a number" method. The most notable name in the cast was actor Harold Gould,who ran the "legal clinic".

One morning they open for business and they're immediately overrun by people needing legal assistance. In an effort to get to go first folks shouted what they had done or had done to them to need a lawyer fast,in the first show a woman shouts,"I killed my husband",and gets 1st priority,with all eyes staring at her. (Turns out she killed him because he said he didn't want chicken for dinner)

Thus she and others are taken care of "Barney Miller" style and they're case is typed up etc. Of course,it wouldn't be a comedy without bizarre things going on as well and this show,like "Miller" had some loonies but due to it's short run,they're not very memorable. Based on what I remember from watching all 4,I'd rate the show 5 out of ten stars. Like my title indicates,it's not "Barney Miller" but it's not bad. Lastly,with even the shortest lived TV shows coming out on DVD it wouldn't surprise if in the future this one would,most likely for $5.
