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....
Although all set at one station Cinader told his writers the stories they wrote had to come from real emergency log books. The principals who play paramedics Gage and DeSoto really did ride around with paramedics on runs and sat in on training classes to get the feel of how this was to work.
Beyond the rescues each episode has some metaplot that ties them all together. some new hobby, or trying to decide where to go on vacation.
Season 5 really had some problems with writing and continuity that made it kind of lame. I had feared that would carry on to season 6 but Luckily they caught that and tightened it up here resulting in a great season.
There is just one thing I wonder about. A metaplot running the whole season is "Henry" the laziest dog in the world. A basset hound who makes the station his home and won't budge from the couch. OK great, stations have pets. But for several seasons the had a dog. A scruffy mutt named "Boot." Boot's absence if never explained or ever commented on. Not so much as a 'well he doesn't jump up on you like Boot use to.' come on guys, no love for the ol' dog?
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.
