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.

Code R
9 October 2005 | by (Whitesburg, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

This was a great show. Shouldn't have ever taken it off the air. I hope it comes out on video. A small community surviving and living on its own. Had a good cast, and had good story plots. I liked the the big football player, Ben as a deputy. Yes, many don't remember this show, but I do. I wish there were quality shows like this today, and not like some of the TV we have today. Many of todays shows, I wouldn't let any children watch, too much very hard violence and sex/sexual situations. No fancy crime labs or big courts, just a small community with its emergency services doing their thing. Protecting and serving. Again, I hope it comes to video/DVD.
