I was watching some of the first episodes of Barney Miller on Hulu, and in the first episode, over the radio, two banks in Manhattan get blown up with bombs, and in the second episode there is a bomb planted in the police station.
WTF? This show aired before 9/11, and in the first episode, Barney acted like bombs going off in Manhattan was business as usual. Aside from the nut that wanted to blow up Edison (years earlier) where the hell did the writers get the idea that bombs were part of daily life in NYC? :rolleyes:
I always thought Barney Miller was a pretty good show, back in the day, but revisiting it, it seems pretty silly.
