Barney Miller (1974)

Ramon - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: A criminal steals Fish's gun and holds the squad hostage. He has a handcuff on one wrist with the other one hanging. The hanging cuff goes back and forth between being open and being closed throughout the scene.

Barney Miller (1974)

Uniform Day - S6-E17

Factual error: It is uniform day where they all have to wear their uniforms. The badges they all wear are those of patrolmen. The problem is that they are detectives and the NYPD has detective badges, which are distinctly different looking.

Barney Miller (1974)

Show generally

Revealing mistake: The actor that played Barney Miller, Hal Linden, was left handed and did everything left handed. However, they always put his gun on his right hip with the handle facing the right. A lefty cannot conveniently pull the gun this way.
