Storyline

A realistic police drama following the lives of two officers of the LAPD, veteran Pete Malloy and his rookie partner, Jim Reed. Done in a spare, almost "docudrama" style, each episode covered a variety of incidents that the officers encountered during a shift, from the tragic to the trivial. Written by Marg Baskin <marg@asd.raytheon.ca>

Trivia

In the first 5 or 6 seasons, Kent McCord wears a wedding ring, in later seasons he doesn't. See more »

Goofs

Many times when the camera shot is of the radio and siren box (when Reed or Malloy talks on the two-way radio), they are clearly talking into a Motorola microphone that is plugged into the siren box instead of the radio. This microphone is used when the public address (P.A.) function of the siren box is used to hail people in-front of the vehicle. Also you can see that there is nothing plugged into the actual radio microphone socket which is located on the lower left side of the radio. See more »

Jim Reed: You just have to know how to arrest them and still make them like you. We call it technique.

Reed and Malloy to the rescue
28 June 2000 | by (Greenwood,SC) – See all my reviews

Adam-12 is the best cop show before Cagney & Lacey, & NYPD Blue. Martin Millner plays Officer Pete Malloy Badge #744 and his partner Officer Jim Reed Badge #2430 played by Kent McCord was great.

After the first season of the show, there were changes. The 8 point caps that they wear changed to round. Reed's hair grow in every season. and they begain to wear nametags in the second season.

I like it.

I give it *****.
