Sam McCloud is a Marshal from a Taos, New Mexico, who takes a temporary assignment in the New York City Police. His keen sense of detail and detecting subtle clues, learned from his experience, enable him to nab unsuspecting criminals despite his unbelieving boss.
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

During the period that "Adam-12" was filmed, the state of California-issued six--digit vehicle license plates in the letter/number format (i.e., ABC123). The final letter was never I, O, or Q, so that they would not be confused as a number. The civilian vehicles on the show usually have the letter "I" as the final letter, indicating that this is a movie/TV prop plate. See more »
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 »
You know what this is?

This is a wonderful show that I really enjoyed as a child! The very first episode, originally airing on 9/21/68, was a classic. Pete Malloy is disgruntled and about to quit the force after his patrol partner's death in a warehouse shooting, and is assigned rookie cop Jim Reed, age 23 and fresh out of the LA police academy. That first day, the officers break up a fight between two men over a lady on the street, then they chase two robbers in a big 1959 Buick four-door that crashes and burns in a canal confluence - this is a breathtaking sequence - that Buick is HUGE with the big canted fins! Malloy finishes his day by giving mouth to mouth to an infant who had stopped breathing. All in a day's work! A portent of good things to come over the next seven years. Watch it, get videos - you won't regret it!
