Captain Barney Miller (Hal Linden) tries to remain sane while leading the 12th Precinct’s detectives: crochety, nearing-retirement Jewish-American Philip K. Fish (Abe Vigoda); naive but goodhearted Polish-American Det. Stanley “Wojo” Wojciehowicz (Max Gail); ambitious, arrogant African-American Det.
