One of the funniest episodes from one of the best sitcoms of the 1970's if not American television history.


They just don't make TV like this anymore.

Before I started the video, I thought if it wasn't the brownie episode, then the OP was clueless.

Well done.

Absolute brilliance. I watched a few these on some streaming deal or another a few months ago and still laughed like crazy. What a great cast and show.

And one of the all-time best theme songs too. Not #1. But definitely Top 10.

Of the original cast only Hal Linden and Max Gail are still with us. Abraham Vigoda only left us in 2016 (aged 94) same year as Ron Glass who passed several months later (aged 71), way too young.


As someone who grew up in NYC during 1970's Barney Miller besides the excellent writing and acting, captured well the "grit" and "dirt" of many police precincts of the time.

Working cops enjoyed this show too. It was unique in humerus police situations.
