Lots of action without the Drama!!
Emergency is the type of show which I call reality. It highlights the highs and lows, dangers and frustrations that firefighers/paramedicas have to endure. I love the action, which is 90% of the show and coupled with the mild drama and sometimes hilarious times, makes this show for all ages. The characters are easily taken in and you feel for them and with them, which is what some of these so called reality shows should learn from. I have all the DVD's possible and look forward to watching until I am old and gray, or until the disc fails. At that point I will buy more. Watch and enjoy!!!!Was this review helpful?

Last Full Season!
This is Season 6, the last full season of Emergency. There were several TV-movies done afterward, but those haven't been released to DVD yet. (Hopefully they will be soon.) This year Roy and Johnny get out of L.A. several times (but don't you just HATE it when your vacation becomes work?). I like that the show acknowledges the passage of time--on a number of occasions the paramedics mention they've been at the job for five years. And Station 51's Captain Stanley is considering appling for Chief in one episode; in another, he's afraid he'll have to retire because of arthritis (which he turns out not to have, though it's never said exactly what it is he DOES have). The episodes are very enjoyable and worth watching again and again. The technology, procedures, etc. are of course dated (hey, the show IS 35+ years old!) but the drama and adventure are totally real and wouldn't be much different today. Buy all six seasons and spend a few weeks enjoying the action and adventures of real heroes!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Another great season of Emergency
My husband and I were both born in 1969 and love this show as much as we did when we were young. But the best part is how much our 3 year old likes it. The program isn't over dramatic with their story lines. They do a good job showing the life of the firefighter and paramedic while on duty. And you can't beat the fashions of the 70's.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
