Officers Pete Malloy (Martin Milner) and Jim Reed (Kent McCord) return for another beat-blazing season of Jack Webb's police drama classic Adam-12. Based on real police cases in and around the city of Los Angeles, Season Six lands the officers in helicopters, on horseback and on airport patrol in locations ranging from the foothills to Venice Beach. The boys in blue have their work cut out for them when they face teenage robbers, angry dogs, a drunken boat cook, bomb threats, armed carjackers and more.
Created by Jack Webb as a spin-off of NBC's hit series Dragnet, Adam-12 Season Six delivers more gritty tales from the case vaults of 1970s Los Angeles.
List Price: $ 34.93

Fellow Adam-12 fans:
The Shout Factory has a tentative release date listed in their catalog as December 13, 2011, which is close to Christmas. The Shout factory website shows a late December 2011, or an early release date sometime in 2012. This is promising news.
Like Emergency, Adam-12 was a quality show, and I know some real life police officers. I like to see police officers on TV who don’t run around firing guns on a daily basis, and I never remember Reed and Malloy riding on car hoods, and I never remember Malloy pulling over an attractive young lady just to get a date. In seven years on TV, Reed and Malloy only had four police cruisers (counting the beast). If a real police officer went through four cars in four weeks, at the very least he would probably be assigned to foot patrol or desk detail.
Another police show I would like to see come out on DVD is Night Heat, which was a Canadian production.
