Storyline

Officer Pete Malloy, a seven year veteran of the LAPD and the senior man in his division's patrol, is getting a new partner: twenty-three year old Officer Jim Reed, who has just graduated from the academy in the top-10 in his class. Regardless of Reed's on-paper credentials, Malloy is not happy, not only about having to break-in a neophyte officer, but also about something that happened in his professional life three weeks earlier, which is making him contemplate his future, that incident which he refuses to disclose to or discuss with Reed. This evening, their unit, called Adam-12, deals with what looks to be an altercation between two men and a woman on the street, two suspicious men who looked to be casing a liquor store, and a baby who may have died from suffocation in a dry cleaning bag.

A classic TV series

Adam 12: Season 1 Episode 1 Below maybe a spoiler of the outcome of this episode.

But I do not really think it is a surprise to anyone.

Martin Milner, I remember him from Sands of Iwo Jima and of course Route 66.

Kent McCord was new to me until Adam 12.

Art Gilmore, was the recognized voice of many TV characters in the 1950s as I remember but again to me this was his first real presence.

Spoiler alert

As the summary says: Malloy plans to resign at the end of shift due to the death of his previous partner but is assigned a rookie partner Reed.

Malloy decides the green Reed is worthy of Malloy's effort to train him leading Malloy to stay on the job.

R.A. Cinader was not know to me until Adam 12.

Of course Jack Webb was a legend of the TV in 1950s.

Jack Webb appeared in movies but never to me, did he make a real impact just a face and voice in the background.

First with Dragnet and later other TV programs such as O'Hara, U.S. Treasury, and movies he directed and appeared in such as Pete Kelly's Blues.
