Great TV
1 April 2005 | by (NYC, NY) – See all my reviews

'Barney Miller' was one of the great "60's" generation shows (I call it a "60's" generation show since it was all "touchy-feelie" with emotional and social issues and stuff like that) that disappeared all too soon. It had more heart than actual fall down laugh out loud comedy, but the laughs were still present.

But the greatness of "Barney Miller" was not in it's comedy - it was in its characters. I remember them like they were my friends. Who can forget "Woj" (short for "Wojciehowicz") or "Fish"?? These are the kind of characters that stay with you because they are cut from fine cloth or chiseled stone.

My favorite was Steve Landsberg's "Arthur Dietrich" who I personally feel wasn't given enough lines or attention. He was definitely the funniest of the whole gang. (I miss seeing him around. I guess he's retired from show business... may God richly bless him, in Jesus' name, amen.)

But as for the rest of the cast it was a hit with all of them. From Barney (Hal Linden) to "Nick" (NICK! oh yeah Nick! he was great with his one liners...) wow - what a show! They should bring it back, or at least have a re-union! :)


HOLY MACERAL!!! I just realized this - they did the ENTIRE show on ONE SET!!! ONE SET?!? that's insane! wow... what a show ...what a show.
