Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles: the 70s. Officers Pete Malloy (Martin Milner) and Jim Reed (Kent McCord) are on patrol and the streets are a seeming never-ending crime wave of arsonists, con artists, nude drunk drivers, loan sharks, drug busts, shootings, gangs, bombings. It is all going down, and so are the crooks, courtesy of the citys finest. Created by Jack Webb, Adam-12 was a spin-off of the popular NBC-TV series Dragnet and similarly portrayed incidents and situations that were based on real LAPD cases. The names may have changed, but the cars, badges and drama remained the same. The show aired for seven seasons on NBC from 1968 1975. So strap in tight for a retro ride-along with Officers Malloy and Reed as they burn rubber through the streets of L.A. in Season 3 of the police drama classic Adam-12.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adam-12 returns to DVD for another great season August 10, 2009
I got hooked on Adam-12 when Tv Land aired it a few years ago. It's one of the best done cop shows that has ever aired on television. It has a serious, straight forward look at life on the streets, but there is plenty of humor to give it a perfect balance. Dranget and Emergency also blended well. Jack Webb was in charge of all of the shows mentioned above. I can only hope that Shout Factory will release the rest of Adam-12 and then release the final three years of Dragnet. I am shocked that Dragnet did not sell well enough to continue releasing it. Anyway, buy the third season of Adam-12, you won't regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not their best - but we still love it! March 13, 2011
Not sure if the director changed? Writers changed? Jack Webb got too involved in this season??? But, the acting by main characters (especially Malloy) and the extras changed a lot and not for the better. The acting is stiff in many episodes - the terminology used is beyond hokey at times - such as Beji yelling out Dadio (episode 3 The Purse snachter) - this is the late 60s Mr. Webb!!! It is obvious that the "bad acting" has to be the writers/directors/Jack Webb as many of the extras have appeared in other episodes, other seasons and were much better!
But there are a few episodes that are really good! My favorite is when Malloy realizes in roll call that his license has expired and Reed finally gets to drive! This is an excellent episode and by itself brings the 3 stars up to a 4. Adam 12 is one of our FAVORITE series! Where is season 6&7??? I've watched them on Netflix, they have to be out there???
Here is a breakdown of episodes available on season 3:

Season 3, Episode 1: Log 174: Loan Sharks
Original Air Date--19 September 1970
Malloy and Reed blaze through a new opening credits sequence. They investigate the beatings of several people in a factory parking lot only to reveal a gambling/loan shark operation with the heavies working over those behind on their loan payments. One lone schoolboy stands up to the organization and commits himself to help the police and testify in court. Along their way they arrest an armed robber of a liquor store who out of guilt could only take $2 from the attendant, and was subsequently robbed himself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Job on Season 3 of Adam 12! August 16, 2009
I just spent the last 2 days doing my own version of a mini marathon watching Adam 12 - Season 3. Shout Factory came through with another fine product. There were no difficulties with watching the DVDs. The picture was crisp and clean, colors were not faded and worn out. The audio was also nicely done! Great job! I look forward to buying Season 4 whenever it becomes available.

This is my favorite series (other than Star Trek).

5.0 out of 5 stars Adam-12 Season Three November 3, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Once again Shout Factory has managed to out do themselves. The DVD's are sharp and very clear. None of that hazy, dull color and muffled sound that has come with other production companies converting your favorites shows to dvd. Shout Factory has made me fall in love with a show that I was too young to watch at the time. Now, I can enjoy it's simpler time when cops were still hailed as heros. But the shows aren't during a "simpler time" as in corny. They're all very realistic and exciting. The guys, Pete Malloy and Jim Reed, are loveable, tough, caring, honest cops. And I just love the way officer Malloy can kick in a door!
Shout Factory, your fans await season four of Adam-12. Thanks for a job well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars A little aged, but still classic... September 30, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I awaited this DVD with some anticipation and wasn't disappointed when I got it. I realize that times change, but this blast from the past was a nice window to when computers didn't play as big a part of our lives than it does now. It is always interesting to see the differences in the way things are done between then and now, and in one or two programs,there is also a commentary to some of the changes that were made. Some of the messages may seem a bit cornier by today's standards, but the action was always there. I look forward to more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Straight arrows September 29, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm guessing the citizens of Los Angeles would like for Malloy and Reid to still be on the job. Cops don't come any more honest and law-abiding than these two. You could probably look at this as a lighter version of Jack Webb's Dragnet, since he also produced this show. Great shots of an earlier LA. Good clean fun from 1970.

Shoutfactory has done it again with its production of this classic television series. Picture quality is superb! Audio is digitally remastered mono, very well done for a 40 year old series. Written in the Jack Webb, " Tell it like it is/was", style, the shows still are relevant today.

Yeah, it's a little corny and not too gritty, but it's a good reminder of how TV used to be.

I was disappointed that the full season of episodes was not included. Should there be an offering of a full third season of episodes, I would be interested in purchasing it.
