Movie Reviews

Don't Miss the Hash Brownies!
Hong Kong Phooey | North Carolina | 01/04/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"No release date yet on this, the pivotal 3rd season, where Steve Landesburg becomes a regular as Det. Dietrich. He will eventually replace Det Fish (Abe Vigoda),who officially leaves at the beginning of Season 4 to star in his own (short lived) show. There is an overused phrase used when reviewing TV shows: "This is where the show 'hit it's stride'", but if this phrase could ever be used, this is the occasion.

A wonderful show in what may be it's best season, with it's best episode: #11 (Hash). "By the way that I feel"!

They Just Don't Make'um Like This Anymore!
Wally A. Whitehead | Round Mtn., Ca USA | 02/18/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My wife and I have enjoyed Barney Miller since it's inception.
We started recording each ep. when we got our first VHS recorder, and have worn out two complete taped series, then when it again appeared on TV Land,recorded it on SVHS tape again, and after we bought our DVD recorder I began to transfer all our tapes to disc.
During that time we were estatic to see them being relised commercially by Sony, and are currently anxiously awaiting the pre-ordered arrival of the third season.
These are great due to the uncut versions, unlike the syndicated versions which had to be cut to fit the newer time slots.
My only complaint is how long it takes between release between seasons. I can only hope Sony continues to release the entire series.
The writing of this series is supperb, as well as the stars, and guest stars on the show.
The show has substance and continuity, which is severly lacking in todays sitcoms.
I doubt there will ever be another like it in this era.
However having the entire series from Sony would satisfy us for the rest of our lives!

Excellent show POOR package

"One of the finest sitcoms of the 70's & early 80's. The show gets five stars hands down. My copy of season three shipped in the poorest packing job the dvd box set Gods ever thought up. It is a spindle with the discs stacked on top of each other. How cheap can you get. This set is a must for Barney Miller fans, but I have already ordered a new case to put the discs in."
SONY Goes For Cheap on Packaging!
Jackie L. Holstein | MPLS, MN | 03/18/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The Discs are all stacked on a HUB that holds all three discs so they lay on top of each other. Really really cheap packaging from Sony and thise is a mess. I can only guess how many more shows from SONY that will be released this way if they don't get enough complaints. If they were gonna give the consumer less quality they should have lowered the retail price at the same time. Mess of a set release Good Going Sony sounds like someone who came up with this idea needs let go. Qualty products sale and Bad word or mouth on poor packaging etc spreads faster then fire.

Do it Right or forget it!"
