One of the funniest police shows ever|One of the Funniest Police Comedies Ever!
Book 'em for hilarity in the first degree, as Barney Miller: The First Season returns to protect and serve up laughs. Digitally remastered on DVD for the first time, this collector's two-disc set compiles all thirteen hysterical episodes from the first season of the long-running hit series (1975-1982), so you can revisit those laugh-out-loud moments down at the station all over again!

Beloved by fans and critics, Emmy-winning Barney Miller rose above the prime-time pack as one of the funniest yet most realistic police series ever. Set in New York City's 12th Precinct, this sly show featured a revolving door of wacky eccentrics and an unlikely band of detectives headed by Captain Barney Miller (Hal Linden). Everyone's favorite motley crew included grumpy old man Det. Phil Fish (Abe Vigoda, star of his own spin-off, TV's Fish), Puerto Rican stand-up comedian Det. Sgt. Chano Amenguale (Gregory Sierra), gullible Det. Stanley "Wojo" Wojciehowicz (Max Gail), Zen-like Asian Det. Nick Yemana (Jack Soo), outspoken African American Det. Ron Harris (Ron Glass) and lone female Det. Janice Wentworth (Linda Lavin, TV's Alice). Fueled by sharp dialogue and a refreshingly diverse cast, Barney Miller: The First Season proves crime doesn't pay - but it sure can be funny!

"...a couple of hit sitcoms...were successfully able to mine the world of law enforcement for laughs. Surely at the top of that list would be Barney Miller.  Jonathan Boudreaux, TVDVDReviews.com
"...rare among workplace comedies in that a steady stream of character actors drop in to spice up each episode.  Robert David Sullivan, Boston Phoenix

Editor's Note
This classic television comedy, which ran on ABC-TV from 1975-1982, details the exploits of Greenwich Village police captain Barney Miller (Hal Linden) and his diverse group of coworkers as they deal with an endless stream of strange characters--criminal and otherwise--on the job. Notable for a multi-ethnic cast (rare for television in the mid-1970's) and smart, character-driven story lines, BARNEY MILLER was a success with critics and audiences alike. The strong cast includes Abe Vigoda (whose character, Detective Fish, got his own spinoff series in 1978), Max Gail, Ron Glass, Jack Soo, Barbara Barrie, and Gregory Sierra. This 2-DVD set includes the entire first season.

Professional Reviews

TVDVDReviews.com 9 of 10
Police dramas have been a staple of network television practically since crime was invented. It is easy to name dozens of crimebuster shows that have been hits throughout the years, from classic series like Dragnet, Charlie's Angels, Hill Street Blues, and Baretta to the current batch of cultural phenomenons like C.S.I., N.Y.P.D. Blue, and the Law & Order franchise. It is harder, however, to name more than a couple of hit sitcoms that were successfully able to mine the world of law enforcement for laughs. Surely at the top of that list would be Barney Miller...One reason why police shows are so popular with viewers and television creatives alike is that the profession provides a seemingly endless source of storyline possibilities, with each episode bringing a new batch of criminals. Barney Miller exploits this to great comedic effect...In a way, Barney Miller does for city life what The Andy Griffith Show did for life in the country. Both shows feature a centered, grounded law enforcement official with whom audiences can easily relate. Through them, we meet the various oddballs that make up both the law abiding majority (Fish, Floyd the Barber) and the not-too-dangerous criminal element... - Jonathan Boudreaux
