TV Shows - Adam-12

Adam-12 is a television police drama, which followed two uniformed officers - Reed and Malloy - as they patrolled the streets of Los Angeles in their patrol unit, 1-Adam-12. Created by Jack Webb of Dragnet fame, the series tried to capture a day in the life of a typical patrol officer as realistically as possible. The show ran for 7 seasons on NBC, from 1968 through 1975, and helped introduce police procedures and police jargon to the general public. In 1990, the series was remade as The New Adam-12.

Adam-12 Comments (You must Login to Comment)

1 The only "211 in progress" when I watched this show was the robbery of a precious hour of my life. It was terribly dull, but I think Jack Webb was always more focused on introducing us to the nuts and bolts of police work (and, with Emergency, of fire-fighting and ER work) than in giving us shootouts and car chases and explosions. For that, he has my respect. (Though Malloy and Reed could have used a charisma transfusion from Randolph Mantooth.) -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 23, 2011, 1:25 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Yo Mythigator- no problem, the site has been upgraded to prevent vote stacking and agenda pushing that way. Welcome back honest discussion/ feedback! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on March 6, 2010, 5:43 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
3 With the Lyn-bashing reason (and associated votes) 86ed from the count, it's nice to see a new chance for honest discussion and opinion. I will submit "Day 1" and "Too boring" as reasons (right after submitting this comment), but to square up the votes I'll put in one for my opinion, "Never Boned." -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on March 5, 2010, 11:01 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 As with my comment on Emergency!, Adam-12 is too good a show for Dawn Lyn to be single-handedly responsible for making it bone, no matter HOW sucky a child actress she was. Not having information to the contrary, I'll accept the majority (or at least most-frequently-voted) opinion that she did indeed suck. However, saying she's solely responsible for killing so many shows is giving her too much credit. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 5, 2009, 7:38 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Wow, JoeBagODonuts must be Dawn Lyn's husband. How can you keep defending her when you have never seen the episodes everyone is talking about? She sucked dude. Try to find an episode that she was in and watch it. Or you can post another fifty comments on shows starting with "I've never seen this show" like you've already done 20 times. -- Submitted By: (JohnnyRocket42) on August 4, 2009, 9:25 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I loved this show and I don't remember Dawn Lyn. They had to have guest stars as part of the stories and I'm sure Dawn Lyn did a fine job for a child actress. Stop your hatin' -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on August 3, 2009, 5:03 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
7 "One Adam-12, one Adam-12, see the man." Dawn Lyn or not, what little I remember about this show was how dull it was. Since they followed the same two cops around (Martin Milner and Kent McCord), very little typical police TV series action (i.e shootouts, car chases, explosions) took place. Oh sure, an occasional arrest would occur, but most of the time these officers would be called upon to rescue a cat, help a lady cross the street or stop some kind of argument. Part of the reason maybe was that it was produced by Jack Webb, whose own show, "Dragnet," was not high on the excitement factor, either. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 16, 2009, 7:30 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
