Barnaby Jones was a former private eye who temporarily came out of retirement to track down the killer of his son Hal, who had taken over the family business. After bringing Hal's murderer to justice (with the assistance of fellow CBS gumshoe Frank Cannon), Jones decided retirement just wasn't his bag after all, and rehung his shingle with the assistance of daughter-in-law Betty, who ran the office and Barnaby's personal crime laboratory, and (later) young distant cousin Jedidiah, who did the cases' legwork.Written by

Buddy Ebsen has an exciting new assignment. He's Barnaby Jones, a different kind of private eye. He's a trained criminologist who uses his head and modern science to nail his man. Lee Meriwether co-stars. (season 1)
The show was intended as a spinoff from another Quinn Martin production, Cannon. Ultimately, they produced three crossover episodes (guest-starring Cannon's William Conrad), including the BJ pilot, "Requiem for a Son." See more »
Occasionally a car may run off a cliff or crash and then explode. Gasoline is volatile but not explosive, so there is no reason for the cars to explode. See more »
This is one of my all time favorite private eye shows. Barnaby Jones was probably the last person you would think of as a private investigator, but he mixed good old fashioned detective work with all the then modern techniques (just check out the lab in his office). Lee Meriwether was perfectly cast as his daughter-in-law/secretary Betty and after a few years they brought in the muscle in the form of Barnaby's cousin J.R.(don't call me Jedidiah) Jones. Too bad they don't show reruns of this show anymore. It was an all time classic.
