Editorial Reviews

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.

I got hooked on Adam-12 when Tv Land aired it a few years ago. It's one of the best done cop shows that has ever aired on television. It has a serious, straight forward look at life on the streets, but there is plenty of humor to give it a perfect balance. Dranget and Emergency also blended well. Jack Webb was in charge of all of the shows mentioned above. I can only hope that Shout Factory will release the rest of Adam-12 and then release the final three years of Dragnet. I am shocked that Dragnet did not sell well enough to continue releasing it. Anyway, buy the third season of Adam-12, you won't regret it.

Not sure if the director changed? Writers changed? Jack Webb got too involved in this season??? But, the acting by main characters (especially Malloy) and the extras changed a lot and not for the better. The acting is stiff in many episodes - the terminology used is beyond hokey at times - such as Beji yelling out Dadio (episode 3 The Purse snachter) - this is the late 60s Mr. Webb!!! It is obvious that the "bad acting" has to be the writers/directors/Jack Webb as many of the extras have appeared in other episodes, other seasons and were much better!
But there are a few episodes that are really good! My favorite is when Malloy realizes in roll call that his license has expired and Reed finally gets to drive! This is an excellent episode and by itself brings the 3 stars up to a 4. Adam 12 is one of our FAVORITE series! Where is season 6&7??? I've watched them on Netflix, they have to be out there???
Here is a breakdown of episodes available on season 3:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Season 3, Episode 1: Log 174: Loan Sharks
Original Air Date--19 September 1970
Malloy and Reed blaze through a new opening credits sequence. They investigate the beatings of several people in a factory parking lot only to reveal a gambling/loan shark operation with the heavies working over those behind on their loan payments. One lone schoolboy stands up to the organization and commits himself to help the police and testify in court. Along their way they arrest an armed robber of a liquor store who out of guilt could only take $2 from the attendant, and was subsequently robbed himself.

I just spent the last 2 days doing my own version of a mini marathon watching Adam 12 - Season 3. Shout Factory came through with another fine product. There were no difficulties with watching the DVDs. The picture was crisp and clean, colors were not faded and worn out. The audio was also nicely done! Great job! I look forward to buying Season 4 whenever it becomes available.

This is my favorite series (other than Star Trek).

I love this series and wanted it for my own DVD library. Martin Milner and Kent McCord are excellent as Officer Malloy and Officer Reed. I wish, they would produce these quality shows today. I highly recommend the whole series. DVDs are clear, bright, and the sound is excellent.

Los Angeles: the 70s. Los Angeles police Officers Pete Malloy (Martin Milner) and Jim Reed (Kent McCord) are on patrol and the streets are a seemingly never-ending crimewave 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 City of Angels 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, except Officer Pete Malloy and his hotshot rookie partner(Jim Reed) were patrolmen as opposed to Sgt. Joe Friday(Jack Webb)and Det. Bill Gannon(Harry Morgan)being investigators.

The names may have changed, but the cars, badges and drama remained the same. This police drama aired for 7 years on NBC from 1968 to 1975. So strap in tight for a retro ride-along with Officers Malloy and Reed as they burn rubber patrolling the streets of L.A. in this 1970-71 Season of the police drama classic ADAM-12.

You also get to see these episodes complete & uncut & commercial-free without all those added commercials & deleted scenes you'd get when ADAM-12 and DRAGNET were shown in reruns on Cozi-TV, ME-TV, Antenna TV, TV Land, and Nickelodeon too.

BTW, Warner Bros.is releasing CHiPs- Season 3 on DVD March 3, 2015.

I got most of my Adam 12 and Emergency DVDs at the same time. I bought them new through Amazon. I found most of the discs had issues with them and would not play all the way through.

What I did was to wash them under running water and dry them off really good. Solved all the issues.

Product arrived on time & it was everything that I was hoping for as I remember this television show when I was a child & I have even seen it recently as they show many reruns of it on different TV stations from time to time!

I'm guessing the citizens of Los Angeles would like for Malloy and Reid to still be on the job. Cops don't come any more honest and law-abiding than these two. You could probably look at this as a lighter version of Jack Webb's Dragnet, since he also produced this show. Great shots of an earlier LA. Good clean fun from 1970.
