I’ll miss Abe Vigoda. Barney Miller was one of my favorite shows when I was a kid, and I remember being excited about the Fish spin-off show too. (And I was bummed that it only lasted one season.) I even remember buying a novel featuring Fish, though I can’t find any trace now that it ever existed, so maybe I’m mis-remembering that.
I also remember, when I was a kid, seeing a doctor about my (mild) kyphosis. He explained the effect of kyphosis to me by telling me that I’d be hunched over “like Abe Vigoda” when I was older. I remember thinking that I really didn’t want to be hunched over like that, but Abe Vigoda seemed like a pretty good guy, so I could probably deal with it.
