NOTE: This is a double-sided disc.
Though no extras are included in the season 1 double-disc set, the 1972 two-part pilot, "The Wedsworth-Townsend Affair," is included; directed by Jack Webb, the pilot also features guest appearances by Martin Milner and Kent McCord in their roles from another of his then-current series, Adam-12. --Paul Gaita

The danger of firefighters' work was really shown for the first time in Emergency, and while the show did tend to glamorize firefighters to a small degree it also showed the dedication that they have to their jobs. Decades before the movie Backdraft you saw firefighters risking their lives on nearly a daily basis. Realism was goal one for the producers, and they achieved that goal.
Season 1 has some great episodes, but it also lacks the cast chemistry that came a year or two later with the addition of Michael Norell as Captain Stanley. The cast - filled with great personalities like Randolph Mantooth, Kevin Tighe, Robert Fuller, Bobby Troup, Ron Pinkard, and Julie London - spent the first season finding their footing with their characters. By season 2 most of them had their characters pegged and developed great interplay with each other.
The other firefighters on the show, played by Tim Donnelly, Marco Lopez, and Mike Stoker also deserve mention because although some of them were given very little to stretch them as actors they did have the perfect personalities to play those characters.
Jack Webb co-created Emergency, and it was his desire to make the show in as close to a "documentary" style as possible.Read more ›
In 1998, I was a gift basket presenter at the "Emergency!" convention. At least 500 people showed up. Randy Mantooth, Kevin Tighe, Bobby Troup, Robert Fuller, Marco Lopez, Mike Stoker, and Tim Donnelly were there. ALL of them were enthusiastic and friendly. NONE were treating anyone like "here's your autograph, bye." I would say at least 300 of the 500 convention attendees were either doctors, nurses, paramedics, EMT's, firefighters, police officers, medical professionals, etc. who came to say "thank you." What other TV show has had that? Jim Page would say, "that simply would not have happened, without the impact of Emergency!"
The Journal of Emergency Medical Services speaks favorably of Emergency!. Gary Ludwig of the Memphis FD said that Emergency! was one of the most positive images of the fire service on Television (I concur), and Randolph Mantooth paid tribute to Jim Page at the last EMS convention I attended. The next time you get on your truck, thank Jack Webb, R.A. Cinader, and Jim Page. Also thank those from the first paramedic classes whose perseverance was a big help in those early days. Where would you be today without the trailblazers? Would ambulances still be the "you crash we dash method?" Think about it.

|Video quality, emergency series 1||
The disc has been out for 5 years, and the show is 30 years older. If you want high quality dvds of tv shows, buy a series of recent vintage. Cleaning up shows from the 50s to 70s, to 2000s and later standards is not always easy.

|didn't this show run for 7 seasons?||
Yeah I would love to see a complete set for a nice price. Right now it's hard to pick a season so maybe the first 3 pack might do.
