User Reviews

 
One of the best of a great series.
4 January 2021 | by russellalancampbellSee all my reviews

This episode has all the elements that made Barney Miller great. Beyond its sophisticated, adult comedy, it has unsentimental heart. And, as usual, it gives the opportunity to some brilliant actors to display their talents. The final scene in which an institutionalised woman is revealed as being quite sane is a gem.
