Remember Fish??

I watched Fish. I admit it. I liked it too. I have an uncle who looks more and more like him as my uncle gets older. Of course, I wouldn't have mentioned it if he reads my blog, mind you..

I vaguely remember this Barney Miller spinoff, but I will say that the theme song rocked; killer sax.

joe said...

That was the name of the theme song??? haha

This show was fantastic! Patiently waiting for it to reappear either on DVD or on-line somwhere.

I saw a recent pic of Abe Vigoda. He doesn't look much different. He looks almost the same now as he did 30 years ago.

joe said...

One other thing, looking at their picture now they all look very Jewish, except for the black kid. I'm not sure if they were supposed to be Jewish or Italian, but they look Jewish, esp. the kid with the glasses.

I don't remember fish.

Scott said...

I loved it. At the time I thought it was hilarious.

Max Reddick said...

Yeah, I remember Barney Miller and Fish. Both were excellent shows. They ran in syndication for a while, but I haven't seen them lately. Would like to see them again though.

joe said...

Ann: Well you can't remember everything..

Scott: I remember Fish's wife, Bernice. I liked her voice.

Max: I liked both shows. Although with Barney Miller what made it good were the different walk-in characters that were either being arrested or filing complaints. Fish didn't have that going for it, I'm afraid.

Max Reddick said...

Yeah, Berneice sounded like she smoked several packs of cigarettes a day. What a turn on!

Scandalous Housewife said...

Wasn't this a spinoff of Barney Miller? I didn't like it that much because there weren't any hot cops involved.

joe said...

Max: Haha. Well, i never said she was a babe....

Scandy: Not even Fish? I don't know, I thought the chicks were crazy about the guy..

is that willis next to fish?

Marissa said...

I didn't watch Fish, but I've rented the 1st season of Barney Miller. It's still really funny, especially Fish's character.

joe said...

Goggles: I think it is.

Marissa: I always liked the dry humor they had on those shows.

Yes Goggles Piasano Ritardo that is
Todd Bridges (Willis). He was quite the actor back then appearing on many television shows.

I was a big fan of Fish as a kid.

joe said...

I had no idea how many people liked this show. It's strange that if this show was so popular why it didn't last longer.

Is that Todd Bridges?
