Barney Miller- Werewolf

1976

An elderly couple visiting New York gets robbed and Barney tries to get their stuff back. A nurse is there to give shots for the swine flu and the detectives have to wait a while after that before relieved. The biggest event is when Wojo and Harris bring in a howling dude who says he’s a werewolf. They had to subdue him in Central Park. He goes to tell that his granddaddy wad a werewolf, would that then make him his granddoggy? He asks them to lock him up because the moon will be full and well they were going to lock him up anyways. Harris hits on the nurse, but she tells him while she finds him attractive she is waiting for a doctor to marry one day. The “werewolf” begins to howl and proclaim the transformation is coming while he is caged, but it never comes. However some folks from a mental hospital to come to take him for evaluations. Everything then comes down a little and roll the credits.

The negatives-If you are looking for a horror show then this one isn’t for you.

The positives-It’s kind of what would happen if someone in the real world claimed to be a werewolf they’d write you off as a nut bar. This is early third season so the show was really coming into it’s own with it’s dry yet brilliant humor. A good episode of a classic show.

I have watched far too many horror and sc-fi shows in my life. Now I feel the need to share this wealth of knowledge and make others suffer.
