Today's audiences may find Adam 12 tame after programs like "Cops" and "America's Most Wanted"... but this series reflects police work as it was in the 1960s, and it relies heavily on morality and negotiation to solve problems, not brute force. That's one reason I love this show. The other is that this program was actually filmed on the streets of Los Angeles and uses many actual locations at a time when L.A. was still largely suburban and growing. To see the old shopping centers, coffee shops and old green RTD busses going by is a trip to the past. I am looking forward to buying all of these DVD sets, as well as "Emergency". My only concern is that they are being released by Universal Home Video, which has a poor reputation for quality. I bought the boxed sets of Abbott and Costello's movies, and 2 of the 3 boxed sets have contain flaws with freezing, skipping and other problems. I own over 400 DVDs and these are some of the few I own with any consistant playing defects.... so I remain cautious on play quality, but I will give the content a five, just the same.

I'm deployed in Iraq and this is the BEST "care package" yet. My eyes lit up! ALthough I'm not old enough to have seen Adam-12 when it first came out, I can't forget the reruns played on TV. I was disappointed when TVLand took it off the are several years ago. I heard a rumor it was on again but I kinda don't have access to a TV right now.

Adam-12 is without a doubt the best cop series ever made. I haven't experienced any problems with my DVD except for minor errors which can be overlooked since this is the best TV series ever made. I just wish they had all episodes on DVD.

The complete first season of Adam-12 will contain 26 action packed episodes of Pete Malloy (Martin Milner) and Jim Reed (Kent McCord) responding "code three" in their black and white patrol car. Very early in the series, Pete teaches Jim some respect of this four wheeled modern marvel:

"Attached to the middle of the dash, illuminated by a single bulb is a hot sheet desk. Fastened to which you will always make sure is the latest one off the teletype before you ever roll."

Who needs a computer when you have a hot sheet desk illuminated by a single bulb containing all the latest 411 on the crimes to hit the Los Angeles area? Not these outstanding police officers!

This will be the first season of seven (a total of 174 episodes) of this realistic "docudrama" about two everyday police officers patrolling the streets of L.A. and I can't wait to own the entire collection as it is released.

First of all, I haven't had any problems with my discs. They play well on my DVD play with no glitches like i've been reading about.

The show is as good today as it was 38 years ago. Watch a show, any show, that is currently on and you will see this is really better than anything on TV. No filth, just great entertainment about 1968 Los Angeles Police. Shows like "Friends" come off as stupid and trashy and not funny. Its no wonder that its rare that a show lasts these days

I had hoped that by waiting, the playability problems reported by other purchasers would have been fixed. Sadly the set I bought on the 26 May 2006 is suffering freezes and in some case whole episodes not playing.

The strange thing is, that if I repeatedly clean the disk with a cleaning cloth I CAN get the episode to play. For example the first episode I had problems with (5th episode, disk one, side A) originally froze at 13 minutes, but by repeatedly cleaning it I was able to get it to play OK until 15 minutes, then 17 minutes, 21 minutes, then all the way to the ending credits.

It has me totally baffled. Why would repeated cleaning of an apparently undamaged disk enable it to play through ? AND, why are SOME episodes on the same side playing OK ?

It's a great pity that Universal have not fixed the problems. Because of this, I'll think twice before buying another universal release no matter how much I want to see it rather than suffer the frustration's of not being able to get the disk(s) to play.

My ratings ? -10 (at least) for the disk quality and 5 stars for the show itself.

I well remember Adam-12 when it was first on the air. It was part of the reason I went to Los Angeles and applied to LAPD and LASO. I loved that show. It's great to see it again on DVD. The program itself deserves FIVE STARS without question! (You might be aware that although cutting edge at the time, and supposedly following LAPD regs to the letter, things would be handled far differently in the last 25 years than what is shown from 1968-1969.) The only reason I gave it 1 star is because the quality of the discs is BAD. I have now given up trying to get a set that will play without freezing or stopping altogether. I see that other people have had a similar problem. I've watched the 2nd season produced by Shout. These functioned perfectly. These discs from Universal have a nice transfer, but you will have trouble finding a set that plays without problems. Still, I love this old show so much that I will just mix and match various season 1 discs in order to be able to play each episode. It's not Amazon's fault. Don't you wish there was some way to complain to the Studio and tell them how they have screwed up? I sure hear about it in my job if I screw up. Oh well. I still recommend you get Season 1 in one form or another, if you love the show.
