This was a good episode. There was sharp humor, and a real heart around addressing the exotic dancers that got picked up. Captain Barney Miller is starting to really get some depth as a character, as we get to see him balance between empathy and kindness and decision maker depending on the immediate need.
The show tried something different here by bringing his wife into the squad room. This was the first time in the show where her and Barney were together outside of the apartment, so it added a nice touch to be able to see them in different scenarios.
This was also the biggest role his daughter has played up to this point, as she is trying to convince her parents that she's ready to live alone.
I get the feeling the writers have been trying hard to work within the framework of a sitcom while bringing up real-life issues for members of a police precinct. So far so good, and I'm enjoying the show a little more after each episode.
