Adam-12 Crossover!
17 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The original movie had an Adam-12 Crossover, but Reed and Malloy actually appeared on the show. In this episode, the fire station gang was watching on on Television - sort of a blunder, if you ask me. When they get a call in the middle of the episode, Johnny sets out to figure out how the show ended. He drives everyone crazy with it!

The call they answered was a rather bizarre case involving a robber in the air duct. I'm not sure if it was a blunder or on purpose, but in this scene, Johnny takes off his hat and throws it to the ground, only it lands on Chet. Chet gives Johnny a startled look. The men also have to rescue a man who'd been poisoned by radiation, and in the process, they get hit by radiation themselves.

At the hospital, the doctors treat two men who got in a fight...twice. Dr. Bracket treats a woman with headaches.

All-in-all, this was a good episode.
