A zany comedy about the love of life
6 January 2007 | by fmills-2See all my reviews

I saw this show when it first aired. I was so taken by Alan Arkin's élan and spontaneity. It's an ode to the piecemeal life, which I somehow ended up living myself. Barney's ability to be himself in any situation is an inspiration. I'll never forget the bit about the Hindu fakir who refuses to give Barney a tip. No joke has ever stuck in my mind like that. The show was on TV at a time when I was suffering from depression. It was pure medicine.

It's also about those who love people like Barney--his fiancé, who defends his way of life to her parents. As it turns out, this also has a wonderful counterpart in my life--my wife.

Thank you, Murray Shisgal. Thank you, Alan Arkin.
