From 1983 syndication, I think WDIV had the rights for this show. Its an earlier one, Season two, I think 1976 is the year, I dont know much about his show, great theme though.
Video Rating: 4 / 5
I LOVE this show when this came on TVLand, I always thought this was New York’s version of the Andy Griffith Show, because the criminals of NY were just as colorful and memorable as the ones in Mayberry.
My dad watched this, so I did too. I was like five at the time and the only thing I understood was the intro.
My parents watched Barney Miller when I was a kid and the only thing that kept me in the room was that opening bass line.
As of 11/7/11, seven people were not giving it up for Hal Linden.

Gives me the creeps seeing the WTC in the background.
Man, my dad watched every episode of this 10 times.
@janemacdonnell1 Man, what an interesting childhood you had! You must cherish those days so much. That’s why I love shows that depict the 60′s and 70′s when people were real, and causes were real, and you had to earn it if you wanted it.
@azbatz1 Weren’t they beautiful! Heartbreaking to see them standing there.
Love this! Made me want to play bass at the age of 6!
@leftcoast67 For real! These guys really looked like detectives unlike these pretty plastic people these days. Seriously how many cops look like super models?
the funkiest theme of ALL TIME
@leftcoast67 A truer word has never been said, sir! I agree with you 100%.
Epic drum breaks
Yo, uh – uh – yo – yo, check it – I gotta… Wait, waitaminute engineer, play it back again. [achrem] Start from the top, I forgot my lines.
