• Jack Webb TV shows

    From Dumas Walker@VERT/CAPCITY2 to MOONDOG on Mon Oct 3 16:20:00 2022
    It was interesting that the three Jack Webb series were all spinoffs, and took place in the same TV universe. There was an episode of Adam-12 where they had to spend a day or two doing airport security, and that story felt like a possible spinoff. There was also talk of one of the paramedics leaving LA and becoming a park ranger. that would've been the springboard for another series.

    If they were all spinoffs, what series did the first one spinoff from? I
    think I vaguely remember hearing about a possible plan regarding one
    leaving to become a ranger.

    I have one nitpick about Adam 12. Their radio ID was 1 Adam 12. The number 1 designates precinct or patrol area, Adam is the police phonetic for a 2 man patrol car, and 12 tells them apart from the other patrol cars. Precinct 1 was downtown LA, and Precinct 2 was west of downtown, also known as Rampart.

    Adam 12 operated out of the Rampart station on the series (show was filmed in west LA county) so technically their radio callsign should be 2 Adam 12

    Wow, you really know your stuff! :) I didn't know that but now that I do
    it will bother me also! :D

    I worded that wrong. Dragnet was first, an Adam 12 and Emergency were spinoffs.

    Before my work schedule got messed up again (post-COVID), I would usually
    be sitting down to breakfast while Dragnet was on. If it looked like it
    was going to be one about hippies, I knew it was going to be a good one and would hit REC. :)

    Ah, hippies and misunderstood teenage revolution. Occasionally a clip from Dragnet appears on Facebook, when Friday chews out some teen becuase he wants to rebel since society is stacked against him. Funny part is you dind't know it was a clip from a show 55 years ago, you would think he's talking about millenials and their push button, on demand, want it now society.

    I though Emergency was the coolest. The portable EKG machine that could send telemetry back to the hospital was pretty slick. Portable defibulators were cool too.

    LOL, yes a lot of what he says has become relevant again (if it ever
    wasn't).

    When I was young and it was on afternoon TV, I did, too. I even had a
    couple of their "official" plastic toy fireman hats.

    I got a small black Plano fishing tacklebox. My father thought I was weird
    for keping band aids and bactine spray in it instead of fishing lures. My mother was an RN before becoming a full time mom. She knew the Emergency reference.
