Favorite TV police show
« on: June 24, 2004, 09:06:26 PM »
1984-5-6 right in there somewhere, every week night 11:30 pm had to watch Barney Miller.  Loved that squad room setting, our squad room had characters that would have fit right in.  Hill Street Blues, was great... should have been able to log in-service training points for watching that one. What were (are) your favorites???

Dragnet and Adam 12. After that I watch Law and Order. I love how the ADA's go out and investigate the case. Anyone know of an ADA that would do that???
Around here they just call the detective in and have him do it!!

well I guess if ya get right down to it; "Gunsmoke" would qualify as a TV Police show. ;D

Oh, almost forgot probably THE BEST TV Police show would have to be "Andy Griffith".

Gunsmoke is definitely a classic.   I got to meet Buck Taylor several years ago at the Fat Stock Show in Ft. Worth.  He is a fine artist as well as being a fine actor.    The Andy Griffith show took law enforcement to a "new" level.  Barney gave new meaning to the term "Crime Fighter"! :) ;) :D ;D :o 8) ??? ::) :-\

I do believe my favorite was "Police Story"!  Being a So. Cal. LEO, that show had a lot of the inside humor, methodology, and comraderee we had.  "Barney Miller" was good for a chuckle too!  The Characters were a hoot!

Hill St Blues. I never missed an episode. Mostly to watch Capt Furillos public defender babe. Hubba!

Dragnet and Adam 12 also high on the list.

Lets not forget (all you OLD guys) Highway Patrol with Broderick (10-4) Crawofrd.

Miami Vice was ridiculous but very entertaining. I also made some cash off them working off duty.

Most effective cop ever? Sheriff Andy Taylor?

Funniest cop ever? Fish on Barney Miller.

Now that I've had time to think about it, I sort o' favored McCloud with Dennis Weaver, and I think he also had a show before that one where he was a Sheriff in northen NM for a while. I liked that one too.

Hey Pards, :o

I know I have already contributed, but cleanin' up the ol' RV (the campin kind not the Revolver ;D) and two shows that we all couldn't miss! :P (those with the gray hair)

 THE MOD SQUAD!!!! :o AND OF COURSE HAWAII 5 O

You all remember "Bookum Dano".  Good scenery, great lead in music!  Jack Lord never with a hair out of place! 8) and Dano (James McArthur) always the faithful GOfer.  Just joshin about Mod Squad! ;D

Then there was Efferin Zimbalist Jr. with THE FBI!  Always out there solving local crime for us locals!  When they Filmed a show in the City I was a LEO in, got to meet the man and his co-star Peter Something (having one of those er, ah... moments).  Fun to watch all those take after takes to get the right shot.

Sorry I got so windy there!! ::)
