Editorial Reviews

When lives are on the line, the Emergency! team is there and ready for action. Reunite with Squad 51 and the heroic staff of Rampart Hospital in all 21 gripping Season 2 episodes of the pioneering series that was the first to show the real-life drama of being an EMT. From mysterious widespread viruses to dangerous overdoses to a treacherous gas explosion, there's no crisis too tough for brave paramedics Roy DeSoto (Kevin Tighe) and John Gage (Randolph Mantooth). With their trademark wit and humor, they're always ready to race to the scene of LA's most dire situations. Along for the ride are some of TV's most popular stars, including Dick Van Patten, John Travolta (Welcome Back Kotter), Deidre Hall and many more. From legendary producer Jack Webb (Dragnet) comes the incredible second season of Emergency! - the TV show that broke new ground for all action series to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rescue 51 - Season Two Looking Loud and Clear! February 8, 2006
Verified Purchase
Well, no playable issues here as was/is with Season One; so far. I'm still disappointed with Universal's choice of double-sided, non-picture discs but a better choice of packaging with the slim-line cases.

Automatic 5 stars for the series, no question there. You never know when a fledgling actor (at the time) may pop up. Anybody spot John Travolta as the injured hiker?

Update: EMERGENCY FIX!
Sadly I've come to my viewing of the last episode of Season 2. Gleefully, it appears Universal has fixed the freeze-ups with nice clean transfers with very little artifactual trash; and only one Universal graphics intro. Good job Universal! Lets hope they keep em coming. We're over due for more WEBB TV, as in Season 2 of ADAM-12 and Dragnet. Sure glad to see that Season 3 of EMERGENCY is on its way!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the 70's best action shows at its peak February 7, 2006
Verified Purchase
Emergency!, the action show about firemen/paramedics which starred Robert Fuller (formerly of Wagon Train), Julie London, Bobby Troup (author of the song ''Route 66''), Kevin Tighe and Randolph Mantooth debuted in January, 1972 and had its share of kinks. The characters were sometimes too stiff and the scripts too one-dimensional. So in Season 1, you get your share of classic episodes like ''Botulism'' (which deals with food poisoning and a race to save the victims) and ''Brushfire'' (which has some of the series' best fire scenes), but also clunkers like ''Nurses Wild'' (which wouldn't air today because of its chauvinism) and ''Weird Wednesday'' (an entertaining piece on strange things happening in one day, but a theme that wears itself out quickly).

Season 2 is much stronger and offers the following episodes:

Problem

Kids

Show Biz

Virus (one of the series' best as a deadly disease threatens the lives of both Brackett and Gage!)

Peace Pipe (one of the silliest episodes and again too politically incorrect to air today)

Saddled

Fuzz Lady

Trainee (maybe the best episode in the series as Gage and DeSoto must work with Ed Marlowe, a former Vietnam medic on an ego trip)

Women

Dinner Date

Musical Mania

Helpful

Drivers

School Days

The Professor

Syndrome

Honest

Seance

Boot

Rip-Off (an excellent piece where Johnny and Roy are accused of stealing)

Audit

As far as storylines are concerned, this is the season that introduces Captain Stanley (Mike Norell), who gradually becomes one of the stronger characters in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Station 51, KMG Three Six Five November 25, 2006
The good TV series are the ones that stand up over time. I think "Emergency" does this pretty well. Like many series, it ran a season or two over its useful life (after a while, they had done every kind of rescue, and the doctors had treated every kind of ailment). But this DVD, Season 2, finds the series hitting its stride. The characters interact very well, the stories are good -- just a solid action-drama, with some humor sprinkled in.

One more thing: The alert tone that preceded the dispatcher's words was the greatest single sound effect in TV history. I use it for my cell phone ring tone.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Blast from the Past March 13, 2006
This is a definite "must have" for any nostalgic TV enthusiast. After watching, I couldn't help but recall fond memories of Saturday nights as a kid, enduring an hour of Lawrence Welk just so I could watch Emergency. I still get goosebumps everytime I hear the theme music and the ever famous " Station 51 10-4 KMG365" The video and audio quality are excellent and I like how there is a synopsis for each episode. The content of each episode is very plausible. It's dramatic, yet realistic. A show way ahead of it's time, I feel it helped set the standard for modern day TV dramas.

A Kid's Review
Emergency is my favorite 1970's era TV show and I'm really happy to see that the second season is coming out on DVD and I hope Universal has improved the quality control on the sets and there won't be defective discs like happened with the DVD set for season 1. I unfortunately got one of the season one DVD sets with a bad disc and I don't want the same thing to happen with my season two set!

5.0 out of 5 stars Emergency Rocks! May 15, 2006
I just love this series. I couldn't believe my eyes when I found Emergency Season 1 and a few months later found Emergency Season 2 were available on DVD. I live in Australia and it isn't available on Region 4. I quickly checked my DVD player and thankfully it is Region 1 compatable. When the discs arrived, I rang work and said I was sick (shhh don't tell anyone.... hahaha) just so I could stay home and watch them straight away.

It is fantastic to be able to watch a televison show that is serious when it has to be and still has light hearted moments that make you laugh. The characters are well developed and the comaradarie between all the characters is so refreshing.

With all the modern TV programs that are on at the moment that mimic reality too much (such as all the Law and Order series, CSI etc) AND with too many reality TV programs (such as Big Brother, Backyard Blitz, etc), it is great to be able to turn on the DVD player and flip in an episode or two of pure nostalgia that doesn't take itself too seriously.

It is because of this show that I used to watch as a kid that I have become an Emergency Nurse. I can't wait for season 3 to add to my collection! Does anyone know when it is going to be released???

Do yourself a favour and buy this DVD. To sum up this show in two words: Emergency Rocks!

Emergency! - Season 3
I'm afraid it might not ever be. Universal has a horrible habit of releasing a season or two and simply dropping DVD releases. We're lucky we got 2 seasons...
