The website tvshowsondvd.com announced a few days ago that Emergency! season 6 will be released on April 13, 2010.
Here's a few episodes of memory:
1. The guy who was launched into a tree when his son tied off his line to the bumper of his wife's van.
2. Gage and Desoto rescuing a guy off the observation tower at Ocean Lab Park (i.e. Marineland.
3. A few episodes featuring Craig Brice. One I recall is where Robert's Rules of Order and parliamentary procedures are used on a paramedic committee - Bob Belleveau, a real Los Angeles County paramedic, acts in this episode.
4. An episode where Johnny and Roy are on a fishing/camping trip and help out a sheriff in a rural community. This was a good depiction of bringing EMT's and paramedics out to rural areas, and the sheriff is motivated by Johnny and Roy to begin training a batch of EMT's. (Remember -this was 1976).
5. Another episode worth recalling is when heavy rains washed out the roads in one of the canyon areas of Los Angeles County. Johnny and Roy end up at Fire Station 86 for a few days, and Station 86 becomes the family clinic. They get standing orders via the biocom from Rampart.
Look forward to seeing this. The tvshowsondvd.com article says that Universal Studios is being persuaded to release the six movies sometime in 2011, with a tentative title called, Emergency! - Movie Collection.
However, how can you neglect to mention the episode in Season 6 where Dr. Kelly Bracket is involved in a car crash that kills the drive of the other vehicle and leaves the child riding in that vehicle unwilling/unable to speak!? Classic episode.
Now if only they will pickup on the release of CHiPs seasons. It stands at two seasons released. Not even halfway through!
Love Emergency! however. FF/PM Roy DeSoto and FF/PM Johnny Gage were two characters that always gave their all to save the victim. We could do with more shows like this on today's airwaves and a lot less of the "reality shows" that have consumed the TV lineups in past years....
If you grew up watching Emergency!, you know that it is much more than a television show. Johnny and Roy become a part of your life and you find yourself thinking about being a Paramedic. You probably did it as a kid, and will do it again as an adult.
Let me put it this way...I am 44 years old and recently sold my small business. I have an appointment at a local college in a few weeks to check out their Paramedic program.
Norell had quite a flair for slapstick comedy which resulted in three very funny episodes: Insanity Epidemic, Hypochondri Cap, and Upward and Onward. Welcome to Santa Rosa County also was well-written and stressed the need for good medical care in a remote area. Humor seemed to be prevalent in several other episodes....this season
showed stories on the lighter side of life, and showed more interaction between the staff of Station 51! If I had any reservations, it would be that the season ended without any closure......and suddenly there was the movie, The Final Rescues, and Gage and DeSoto were promoted to Captains. How did the transition happen....we never found out! They were Paramedics and then they were Captains! The crew at 51 vanished...only to be seen in flashbacks. What an opportunity was missed when a whole possible storyline was never produced. Very sad! The same thing happened with the Pilot film....except Station 51 was introduced....but hurriedly with very little tranistion as well!
This is common.....events happen and one never sees how it all started and never saw the develpment of the story. I liked the crew at 51 and thought they worked well suppementing the major stars....especially Mike Stoker who gained more ease with his lines and performance as the series progressed. He had less performance time because he, being an actual firefighter, was often on duty during filming. I was happy to see his presence increased with time and he was given more spoken lines.
That I liked the series is evident.....not every episode though!Read more ›
