Merch: Barney Miller Game

Most sitcom based board games are a really lazily put together selection of graphics combined with a lame game concept from the Parker Brothers vault. I was surprised by reading this description that this game actually sounds like fun:

Object of game: Assume the identity of one of Barney Miller’s detectives-Fish Harris, Wojehowicz, Yermana-and sit facing the detective’s desk blotter on the board. The object is to be the first detective to capture all four suspects appearing on the wanted poster to the left of the desk blotter.

My opinion of this game may be biased for a couple of reasons however, one is I loved Barney Miller very much but also I cannot believe anything with both Abe Vigoda and Jack Soo on the box could ever be a bad thing.....

Wow, that's a find. Is there a point in the game where you eat pot brownies and stagger around the game board?

And where's Linda Lavin? Gregory Sierra? James Gregory?!?
