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.
