Product Description

The men of the 12th Precinct are back for another season of big laughs and bad coffee! Fires, blackouts, smog ? elections. The third season gives a wild look at New York City during one of its most dynamic times, the late '70s, an era before the term "politically correct" existed. Join Hal Linden as wise police Captain Barney Miller along with Officers Fish (Abe Vigoda), Wojo (Max Gail), Harris (Ron Glass), Yemana (Jack Soo) and guest stars Dietrich (Steve Landesberg), Officer Levitt (Ron Carey) and Inspector Luger (James Gregory) in this hilarious Emmy®-winning comedy. With a station of wacky misfits and wild New Yorkers, the third season is full of guest stars including Billy Barty (UHF), James Cromwell (TV's "24"), Doris Roberts (TV's "Everybody Loves Raymond"), Brett Somers (TV's "Match Game"), and Michael Tucci (Grease). So funny it's criminal, BARNEY MILLER: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON is a must-have for any DVD collection!

Amazon.com

The saying "the more things change, the more they stay the same" applies in full to the third season of the Emmy-winning comedy Barney Miller, which underwent considerable shakeups in its cast and creative ranks in its third season while retaining its sharp writing and performances. Gone from the 12th Precinct at the beginning of Season 3 (1976-1977) are Gregory Sierra’s Chano and Linda Lavin’s Wentworth, and in their place Steve Landesburg as the phlegmatic Dietrich and Ron Carey as over-eager Carl Levitt in their first full season as cast members, and briefly, June Gable as Detective Maria Battista (Abe Vigoda’s Fish would join the ranks of the departed in the following season, and his spin-off series, Fish, was introduced here). Producer Chris Hayward had also left the show at the end of the previous season, and co-creator Danny Arnold would take his place for the remainder of Barney’s network run. But in spite of such turnover, the show lost none of its humor and edge during the third season, as witnessed by a pair of exemplary two-part episodes: "Quarantine" forces the detectives to do some soul-searching while under lockdown for a smallpox outbreak, while the season closer, "Strike," tests their loyalties when an unauthorized work shutdown is announced. The blend of laughs and drama present in both episodes are exactly why Barney earned solid ratings and critical respect during its tenure on TV, and while it remains one of the best-loved series to date. Other standout episodes include the memorable "Werewolf" (a prisoner believes himself to be one); "Sex Surrogate" (Doris Roberts guest stars as a woman who shoots her husband for seeking help with dysfunction); the hilarious "Hash" (Wojo’s gift of brownies turn out to contain marijuana) and "Group Home," which revives the show’s running gag of outfitting a precinct member in drag to handle the mugging detail--this season’s candidate is a marvelously mortified Fish. With such a wealth of terrific material, one wishes that some sort of special feature was included to provide some perspective on the season, but that isn’t the case here. --Paul Gaita

The casting, and scripting were superb!

I have other DVDs with the same more than one disc on a spindle, and there is no problem.

This is one of the funniest show that has ever been made.

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"!

Season 3, Episode 1: Evacuation
Original Air Date--23 September 1976
Wojo is alarmed to learn that New York City doesn't have an up-to-date emergency evacuation procedure. Fish meets Jilly Pappalardo, a young thief who eventually will star in the spin-off Fish.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Season 3, Episode 2: Quarantine: Part 1
Original Air Date--30 September 1976
Wojo brings in a sick perpetrator who collapses on the floor. The entire precinct is placed under quarantine, including a prostitute who gets friendly with Fish, Marty, Mr Driscoll, and Inspector Luger.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Season 3, Episode 3: Quarantine: Part 2
Original Air Date--7 October 1976
Being cooped up in the same room together, especially with no air conditioning, starts to effect the men negatively. Especially when they overhear Harris' very vocal dreams where he seems to have a problem with everyone. The rest of the men share personal stories and conversations,while waiting to hear from the medical lab if the the possible "pox" they might be infected with is either Small Pox or Chicken Pox.

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!

The packaging is as someone put it criminal!
They have stacked 3 disks on a single spindle one on top of the other.
This will promote scratching on the disks - for thoes who like to keep their discs in mint cond. or collectable, this is not good.
It also makes it difficult as to get to the third disc you have to remove the first two. Cheap and inconsiderate design.
The show is great - I find the Video quality transfer bettter than the previous 2 seasons. Although the humor I find has changed slightly in the 3rd season, also the Character Chano is no longer on the show which might have changed the balance?
If not for the case I would have given a 5 star.

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.

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!

Great show, very good transfer and I can't wait to get the remaining seasons when (and if) they are released.

Sadly it misses a star for the bad packaging and presentation. Instead of individual mounts or cases for the discs, we get all three in one case and on one mount. So to get to the last disc you have to take the first two out...this is horrible and increases the chances of the discs getting damaged. Also, there is no booklet listing the episodes or their titles. Very poor!

If a job's worth doing...do it right. Next time, I hope the manufacturers will go back to the designs for either the first or second seasons, those were much better.
