Emergency--now this was "Must See TV"
22 June 2005 | by (San Diego, California, United States) – See all my reviews

I remember that a few years ago, NBC used "Must see TV" as their network slogan. They should have used it back in 1972. I was about 14 when the show hit the air and I don't think I missed more than a couple of episodes during its network run. Much like Adam 12, the show concentrated on the day to day activities of its main characters, in this case 2 LA county Paramedics, and the hospital staff that helped them save the lives of people in trouble. Just like Adam 12, there was humorous interplay between the younger team member, Johnny Gage (Randolph Mantooth) and the older, senior member Roy DeSoto (Kevin Tighe).

It was particularly funny to see the ever on the make Gage trying his moves on nurses. In a way, he was the forerunner of Frank "Ponch" Poncherello in his constant attempts on charming single females.
