Question of the Day

[We've done this one before, but it was really fun…]

Who's your favorite TV cop of all time?

Before immediately dismissing this as the stupid question of limited appeal it might appear to be at first blush, consider how many TV cops 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 a detective with the NYPD, always said was the most realistic cop show on television.
