WE'RE BACK!!!!

It would probably be over-the-top to proclaim "BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND," but it is most certainly true that it was touching to see how many of you contacted us, both on this website and even more on the Cagney & Lacey Facebook page, regarding my decision to let this website simply vanish into the black hole that is rumored to be out there.... somewhere.
More than the numbers (which were impressive, by the way) was the reasoning that, for the very little money it takes to keep the website up and running, there is something to be said to having it there for whomever might want to check out this repository of stuff on our iconic television series in the future.
I am convinced. We will stay up on the web... even for our limited readership. Since one of my reasons for this turnabout is posterity, I will endeavor to make this site even more of a repository of Cagney & Lacey material than it was before. In that regard, installments of my book, Cagney & Lacey...and Me will begin on this site in the very near future. I know all of you have read it, but in the spirit of that aforementioned repository, I think the book should be part of the gestalt of this definitive Cagney & Lacey website.
Not that you still can't get your very own autographed copy of the book (am I shameless, or what?). We still have plenty of copies and are only too happy to supply you with more... and now discounted down to $20 all in, including shipping. Be sure to let us know to whom you want the book autographed. They do make for a thoughtful... but easy... gift for almost any occasion.
Thank you all, again, for your interest, and for the caring way in which you addressed my upset at what I characterized as this failure of mine. They say that a parent is only as happy as his least happy child.... Unhappy or not, this website is still one of my offspring... and so we will keep it going.

I am so pleased that the blog is back! Good for you, Barney :) I have been a Cagney and Lacey fan from the beginning, especially of Sharon.

Ah, brilliant! This feels like the successful letter-writing campaigns from the '80s that brought back C&L! It will always be important and relevant, and it's good to maintain this site as a testament to that.

So so hapoy to read this Barney! Feels like a throw back to the good old times when that letter writing campaign brought C&L back! I remember TV Guide...."you want em...you got em." Thank you for preserving a significant piece of TV history. Just saw Tyne this oast Saturday perform up in Dorset VT. The 3 1/2 hr drive up was well worth it. Now to have a play written for both Sharon and Tyne! Karen V. - Massachusetts

Screw those upstart new millennium dramas--I've been binge-watching C & L lately (alternating with PERRY MASON). I own the whole C & L series. I'm almost done with the superb seven episodes from the spring of 1984. It's been fun watching the episodes again. I loved this show in the 1980s and I appreciate it all the more today. Those ladies are still magnificent. My regards to them and to you also, Mr. R. I bought your delightful book in 2008 on my (alas, only one to date) visit to Hollywood.

All the best,
