A Saturday night staple back in the day, 8 June 2000
Author: raysond from Chapel Hill, North Carolina

"Emergency" was a show that had it all....gripping medical drama combine with high adventure and cliffhanging excitement. As a child growing up,it was a Saturday night staple during its run on NBC from 1972-1977. Basically,it was a show about paramedics but a whole lot more. The show not only follow the lives of two paramedics DeSoto(played by Kevin Tighe),and Gage(played by Randolph Mantooth)at Station 51 of the Los Angeles County Fire Department who risk their lives saving people in daring but sometimes dangerous situations,but it also follows the staff and doctors at Mayfair Rampart General Hospital,particularly the details in the lives of Dr. Brackett(played by Robert Fuller),and Dr. Early(played by Bobby Troup),and the head nurse McCall(played by 50's recording artist Julie London). Its premiere episode from January of 1972,was the most gripping ever,which in turn begins the partnership of Gage and Desoto and the situations they encounter(which in a two parter episode Nurse McCall is injured when she tries to save a woman from a burning car hanging inches over a steep cliff,and Gage and Desoto raced against time to save them both). The producer of this show was Jack Webb(the man who was Joe Friday from Dragnet) who also during this created the best action series ever to come out of the 1970's which during that time he was producing shows like "Adam-12",and "O'Hara-US Treasury")and its rarely seen nowdays(except if you catch some of the episodes on TV Land) and its one of those shows you don't want to miss.
