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 (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!
