Great Reunion for Milner & McCord...plus Garth Brooks!
8 June 2001 | by (midwest) – See all my reviews

Nashville Beat, made 14 years after Adam-12 went off the air, is a great reunion movie for its two stars, Martin Milner and Kent McCord. In fact, their characters even resemble Reed and Malloy. They started in the LAPD, O'Neal (Milner) training Delany (McCord) in a patrol car and they later became good friends. They could have easily been Reed and Malloy. Except that now Milner is the happily married guy who'll eat anything and McCord is the single picky eater. Role switch.

This movie has your typical southern stereotypes (the Sergeant's a beer drinking egotist named Stick and another guy on the force is named Bubba!), there's plenty of country music (an early appearance by Garth Brooks is a treat!) and the gang members look like they came out of a rap video, but it all works here. And the police action is great just like it was in Adam-12, only this time they're a captain and a lieutenant and in plainclothes.

Anyone who's a fan of Milner, McCord, Adam-12, or police movies will like this (if you can get ahold of it). Plus, you get to see Marty and Kent sing!
