Being Frank About Barney

From my continuing series of men I had a crush on when I was a boy, here's Hal Linden, as the unflappable Capt. Barney Miller. Like Jack Nicholson HERE, Linden was the same age I am now when he started the hit show about the comings and goings of the 12th Precinct in Greenwich Village. While Barney didn't fill out a pair of polyester dress slacks the way Wojciehowicz (Max Gail) did, his handsome face and warm eyes were simply irresistible to this 7-year-old Michigan boy.

Love me some WoJo. But even more than that, I remember the episode where Linda Lavin brought in a straight male prostitute (some soap hunk from All My Children). I was riveted.
