Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Columbo had his cigar and Kojak had his lollipop, but Detective Tony Baretta outranked 'em all with his quirky trademark prop: a pet cockatoo named Fred. Launched in 1975, Baretta was one of the first cop shows to celebrate the streetwise detective as urban folk hero. Erstwhile Little Rascal Robert Blake embraced the title role with gusto, donning wacky undercover disguises and spouting fractured tough-guy truisms "Dead's dead and it don't come back again". Great secondary characters provided much of the show¹s edgy humor, from the flamboyant pimp Rooster Michael D. Roberts to Billy Truman Tom Ewell, the retired NYPD detective who owns the fleabag hotel that Baretta calls home. Although Baretta only lasted three seasons, its groundbreaking scripts garnered an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Drama Series and won Blake a Golden Globe for Best TV Actor. Its popularity endured through syndication well into the '80s, when many actors who got early breaks on Baretta had become household names. Look for Margot Kidder as Terry Lake in "The Secrets of Terry Lake," one of 13 first-season episodes collected in this three-DVD set. Old and new fans of detective shows will want to own this classic series, whose status as a cult favorite will no doubt be enhanced by its availability on DVD.
