Overview

The most successful of producer Jack Webb's non-Dragnet TV projects, the weekly, half-hour Adam-12 was a realistic, unardorned look at the "working cop". Each episode dealt with a typical day in the lives of two uniformed policeman, assigned to a patrol car in the teeming streets of Los Angeles. Martin Milner was cast as Officer Pete Malloy, a seasoned veteran who in the first episode was teamed with probationary rookie cop Officer Jim Reed, played by Kent McCord. Rocky moments notwithstanding, the relationship between Malloy and Reed was never "superior/inferior" but always on an equal basis, with young Jim benefiting mightily from Pete's casual expertise, and Pete in turn being "humanized" by the eager-beaver Jim. It was clearly established that the partners were not supermen or paragons: They were both capable of making serious mistakes and errors of judgment, and both could be emotionally affected by their work despite the hard shell they'd had to build around themselves when dealing with a variety of unpleasant "perps". Reversing the usual cop-movie cliché, junior partner Reed was married to wife Jean, played variously by Mikki Jamison and Kristin Harmon, while Malloy was a bachelor. Sent to their various assignments by a never seen police dispatcher voice provided by Shaaron Claridge, whose oft-repeated "One Adam 12 -- One Adam 12" became the series' most familiar catchphrase, Reed and Malloy handled cases ranging from the hilarious to the horrendous. Over the years their cop-shop colleagues included Sgt. MacDonald William Boyett, Officer Ed Wells Gary Crosby, Officer Jerry Walters William Stevens, Sgt. Jerry Miller Jack Hogan, Officer Grant William Elliott, Officer Woods Fred Stromsoe, and Officers Brinkman and Green, both played though not during the same seasons by utility actor Claude Johnson. Lasting seven seasons and 174 episodes, Adam-12 ran on NBC from September 21, 1968 through August 26, 1974.

    Loyal outstaning fan.

    I believe that &quot Adam 12&quot to be one of the most realistic day to day police shows ever produced. It had an excellent cast and most believable stories. Malloy and Reed were excellent, but not perfect officers. They made mistakes which made them human. &quot Adam 12&quot is one of my favorite shows and I look forward to purchasing season 2 through 7. Please continue to release the remaining seasons as soon as possible. &quot Adam 12&quot has my highest rating. Thank you R.B.H. in Maine.

    Great

    This is a great program, and one of my all time favorites. Universal should put the rest of the series on DVD. There are some great eposides in seasons 2-7. Universal listen to the fans!

    Great Series - One of the Best!

    Best TV series featuring the day-to-day work of street cops. While any series needs to be entertaining in order to keep an audience, Adam-12 was the best show to do this and still have credibility. I still enjoy watching the shows. Hopefully, the other seasons will be released on DVD soon.

    Still One of the Best!

    In these days of ridiculous shows like CSI, et al, it's very refreshing to sit down to a show like Adam-12. Not only well-acted and directed, but still one of the most realistic cop shows ever made. Hey, Universal, release Season 2 already!

    Excellent footage

    Would like to see the other seasons and add them to my collection with Season 1. Enjoyed it very much! I saw this show when I was just a kid and loved it even then!
