Question of the Day

Who's your favorite TV cop of all time? Before you immediately dismiss this as the stupid question of limited appeal it might appear to be at first blush, consider how many there actually are from which to choose! From Andy Griffith to Cagney & Lacey to the cops of both Hill and Jump streets and right on to the vast casts of the L&O and CSI franchises, there must be hundreds of TV cops for your consideration.

No question, my hands-down favorite cop of them all, though, is Abe Vigoda's Detective Fish from Barney Miller—the show my granddad, who was NYPD, always said was the most realistic cop show on television.
