Storyline

Barney Miller is the kind of cop we'd all like to run into. He is always sensible. He maintains order over a squad room of detectives who gamble for a hobby, get hit on by anything in skirts, go to renaissance philosophy conventions for fun, and would really prefer to be writing. Nearly all of the action takes place in the squad room where the citizens and criminals are brought in to complicate the mix. Written by John Vogel <jlvogel@comcast.net>

Trivia

Two of the props used on the police station set, were the chalkboard, used to show whether the policemen were on-duty or off-duty, and the scarred cell door. When the show ended, the chalkboard and cell door were donated to the Smithsonian Television Museum. In addition to the names of the characters on the show, the board listed other names which were those of technicians who worked on the show's crew. The Smithsonian also has the police badges used by the actors (signed by Producer Danny Arnold) and Jack Soo's coffee mug. See more »

Quotes

Wojo: Oh yeah, that's always a good game.
Rhonda Haleck: He got me a little pennant, a hot dog and a beer. We had really great seats.
Wojo: Sounds like your dad was a nice guy.
Rhonda Haleck: He was a mugger. Some guy he rolled had season tickets. Halfway through the game, a cop showed up. Dragged us both out of there.
Wojo: Oh.
Rhonda Haleck: Wanna hear about the puppy I got for Christmas?

One of the all-time greats
4 September 1999 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the absolute greatest shows on television - never fails to entertain. Too bad the "suits" didn't catch on and try to copy what so obviously worked. It ranks right there with M*A*S*H, Frasier, Cheers, and Married...With Children as examples of how good comedy can be...
