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

Whenever there is an insert of either the radio, the "hot sheet" (list of stolen cars), or when Reed is jotting down information on the pad, the visuals almost never match the continuity of the scene. Example: It can be daytime in the scene, but when the insert of the radio or the hot sheet is shown, they appear, due to the lighting, that the inserts are from nighttime. Also, the same insert of Reed writing on the pad is used whenever he writes info down. As with the errors with the radio not matching the scene, there are times when Reed is wearing the short-sleeve uniform, yet when he's writing info down, we see the cuff of a long-sleeve shirt.

The Forefront of other cop shows that were to follow
Even though it was one of the best shows ever in depicting the activities of everyday policeman on the beat in the streets of America, "Adam-12" was the forefront of future cop shows that were to follow it. This show was sort of like the "Cops" of its day as police officers Reed and Malloy go after the bad guys who brake the law and protect its citizens in the gritty streets of Los Angeles. Even though it only ran from 1968-1975 on NBC,this show was a fine police procedural that went straight by the book on how police procedures were done and how the officers handled difficult but strange situations in the line of duty(courtesy of its executive producer and creator Jack Webb). Catch the repeats on TV Land!!!!
