It Did Alright..., 30 May 1999
Author: Chin Thammasaengsri (starbase29@juno.com) from Los Angeles, Ca

Rescue 77 was far from having the moxy that made Jack Webb's "Emergency!" and "Adam-12" television classics. However, I have to give credit where it was due, this show came close to taking us back to the days of when Johnny and Roy rolled the streets of Los Angeles in Squad 51.

Rescue 77 did attempt to follow in the spirit of "Emergency," and did it well at times. One episode I remember in particular focuses on a young man and his bride who are trapped under a concrete divider that has fallen from a truck. That was an intense hour of humanizing the job of Firefighter/Paramedic and showing all of its human frailties. By the end of that hour, I was surely moved. In retrospect, in this shows short run, it did a good job of showing stories with substance and grit.

I was one of the first to watch when it premiered on the WB Network in March. I was very suspicious of such a "good looking" cast. But they surprised me for the good.

Again, I am sad this show had such a short run. I was told it did actually very well in the Neilsen Ratings, but I guess it wasn't good enough to win a permanent berth on the schedule. Hmmmm...doesn't that usually happen to TV shows that show promise?
