    I thought this show didn’t need saving.
    Still, even Barney Miller can’t rescue this show from its stupidity.

    Looks like they wasted no time replacing Max’s love interest. :P

    Who wants to bet he’s Max’s father?

    I’ve been catching episodes of Barney Miller on Antenna TV from time to time. It’s a shame Jack Soo is gone…he could make a great quirky uncle for Han!

      “Barney Miller” effectively used minority actors without making their characters exclusively ethnic stereotypes. There was ethnic humor, but the characters were more than just that. 2BG should take note.

      • Daya says:

        I sometimes wonder if 2BG would be half as funny without the genital jokes.

        Speaking of ethnic stereotypes, Sophie is obnoxious. More than that, I’m not sure there’s a person in Poland who thinks at ALL like her! UGH!

    How this show has lasted 3 seasons is beyond me, I tried to watch a show, couldn’t do it, my IQ must be too high to think it’s entertaining
