Storyline

This CBS adventure series managed to combine elements of "Adam-12", "Emergency" & "Baywatch" at the same time by chronicling the adventures of the fire, police & ocean rescue services of Channel Island, located just off the coast of Southern California. Baker was the head lifeguard, Robinson the police chief & Wilson the fire chief; all three and their subordinates battled arsonists, muggers, car crashes, bootleggers, danglers, etc. on a weekly basis. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

I loved this tv series!
15 April 2004 | by (LaFollette, TN (USA)) – See all my reviews

Tom Simcox is one of my favorite actors and he was great in the role of Walt Robinson. (This guy has the bluest eyes I have ever seen!) Code R was a great action/adventure series. My brothers and sisters and I all sat glued to the tv when this show was on. I remember some of the story lines (which I won't reveal here). This series may have borrowed parts of its premise from other series which aired prior to "Code R", but the idea of being a self-sustaining community on a small island was something new to a tv action series. I wish I knew whatever happened to Mr. Simcox. He is (was) a very talented actor with many guest starring roles to his credit. If there are any other Tom Simcox fans out there, you should check out his guest starring role in the Hawaii 5-0 episode, "The Sunday Torch". Anna Daugherty
