Did You Know?


Wojo, while looking out the window at the fog says: "looking at the fog dropping down the air shaft". Only the fog he looking at is moving in an upward direction. Probably because the smoke machine creating that "fog" is below the window. And since it's smoke, not fog. It tends to move in an upward direction. See more »


Capt. Barney Miller: After remembering the guys he started out with: My God, I'm starting to sound like Luger!
Det. Ron Harris: Don't worry. We caught it early.

The sixth season concludes with a pity party
5 July 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Fog" closed out the sixth season on a quiet note, as Barney laments not being promoted to deputy inspector, his squad room staff trying to soften the blow by sharing blame- Harris' book made few friends, Wojo's always getting into trouble, and then there was Dietrich's arrest ("I buried him!"). A street musician (William Dillard) is arrested for assaulting a string quartet from Juilliard because they were playing his corner. Sydney Lassick (second of two) plays Victor Carse, who uses a sledgehammer to knock out a satellite dish from the phone company, believing those microwaves can destroy the senses and boil our blood. J. J. Barry plays Fred Bauer, brought in for breaking an alarm at a Christian Science reading room. Turns out, he got lost in the dense fog and entered the wrong building!
