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>

One of the all-time greats
4 September 1999 | by jacksoncSee 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...
