    There's a Barney Miller marathon on WGN America today.Alway's loved that show,and thought Yamanah was one of the best of the cast

    Yamanah after eating some brownies someone put hash in them.
    "Hey Barney,let's go down to the beach and shoot some clams",and then he starts singing.:supergrin:

    Barney Miller, Adam 12 and Dragnet have been showing in the afternoon for some time.

    I like the old shows but it's interesting just how anti-gun those shows were. Every time a citizen tries to protect themselves with a gun or owns a gun they are portrayed as fools who are a danger to themselves and everyone around.
    The theme is, yes you can legally own a gun but you shouldn't have one because you can just call the police instead.:upeyes:

    Watch it every Sunday night on WGN. Really a funny show. The comedy shows today sure don't match up to the old stuff, i.e., Cheers, Mash, Wings, Frasier and a bunch more I can't remember.

    I think they have Night Court on TV Land now and then. Mostly seem to spend my times watching the Cosby Show and Married With Children though. MWC is also on TBS too.


    Get Smart is great too. Wish a station would show some Three Stooges though.

    Watching Barney Miller now. Great writing.

    WGN plays WKRP in Cincinnati, too. Loved that show. Watching Loni Anderson as a teenager made me..uhh...let's say flushed.

    I forgot about a lot of those old shows, like Night Court.
    They are sure better than most of the stuff that's on now days.


    I just checked. Such as WKRP and Night Court are available on Netflix.:)

    Just caught the end of an episode.

    Wojo has to escort a prisoner to Cleveland.

    Barney tells him sympathetically and sarcastically to "have a good time"

    To which Yamana deadpans... "you would be the first"

    Some good stuff there.

    I forgot how much I liked this show. Used to watch reruns in the 80's.


    Polish guy talking to Yamanah: You ever been to Internal Affairs?

    Yamanah: Not since Pearl Harbor.


    And hoping I got the brownie episode in the bunch I'm recording today. I recall that one being hilarious.
