In this Dutch police detective series, Detective Jurriaan 'Jurre' de Cock is sort of the 'Columbo' of a Dutch police city's police department, as deceptively poor in appearance (cheap raincoat) but always able to outsmart the crooks, usually a murderer per episode. He does however have a competent team, especially his young, promising right-hand Detective Dick Vledder and the more modest, often separately standard-researching Detective Albert 'Appie' Keizer, while Chief Corneel Buitendam is not too helpful; another regular is forensic examiner Dr. Ennaeus den Koninghe.

During filming of season 5 (1999), actor Freek van Muiswinkel (watchman Jochems) had to drop out due to illness (pancreatic cancer, which later led to his death). Panicked, the producers phoned Jeroen van Koningsbrugge, who had guest-starred as Jochems's assistant earlier in the season, asking him to play a replacement watchmen for the remainder of the season. A similar thing happened during filming of the 6th season (2000)- actor Hans Karsenbarg had to be admitted to the hospital. His friend Hans Veerman took over his role for the rest of the season.

Baantjer is a great show! (not crap at all) Every Friday night, here in the Netherlands, I watch it with my family and it's a very exciting show. The person who wrote the other review has probably never seen Baantjer because if he had, he wouldn't have called it crap! Also, it's not true that the only reason for watching Baantjer is because famous stars appear on screen every time because they never have famous people on Baantjer! Baantjer is just a great, funny and exciting Dutch show, that would never make it in the USA because it has too much Dutch culture. But that's not a reason for people to comment negatively on it! And If you ever go to the Netherlands, check it out! (You'll definitely fall in love with it!
