I loved Barney Miller as a kid, and am surprised he was only 65, because he looked worn out on the show all the time. Promote this thread!

After Yemana, Dietrich was my favorite character. Here's Dietrich's first episode http://www.hulu.com/watch/47959/barney-miller-fish#x-0,vepisode,1,0 but here's Steve Landesberg's first appearance http://www.hulu.com/watch/9757/barney-miller-doomsday#x-0,vepisode,1,0

I nearly posted this before their correction... Barney Miller was one of those shows that I watched when I was way too young to be watching what I was watching.

I didn't realize who this was. What a great show that was. I catch it on TV Land from time to time and realize now how great it was. RIP
I heard the other day that they dropped out after the network couldn't get clearance for their cover song. Seems this show got more popular than expected that they're actually scrambling to find more performers.
