Adam-12: Season One [DVD]


Season one of Adam-12 gets underway with admirable rapidity, with the episode "Log 1: The Impossible Mission," directed by series creator Jack Webb. The opener details the first day on the job for rookie LAPD cop Jim Reed (Kent McCord), who has been teamed with crusty veteran Pete Malloy (Marvin Miller). Although Malloy is still bitter over the fact that his previous partner had been killed a few weeks earlier, he takes Reed under his wing and helps the youngster survive his shakedown cruise with flying colors. Later episodes find Reed and Malloy piloting their squad car to a variety of assignments, coming in close contact with drug pushers, burglars, abusive spouses, and stalkers. Many of the first-season installments deal with Reed's adjustment to his new job. In "Log 91 -- You're Not the First Guy's Had the Problem," Jim learns the hard way how to keep his emotions separate from his work when one of his best friends is seriously wounded. And in "Log 33 -- It All Happened So Fast," Reed is forced to kill a man in the line of duty for the first time. In the interests of fairness, however, Malloy also has his bad days. In "Log 112 -- You Blew It," Pete gives a speeding motorist a break and lets him go without a citation -- only to find out that the man had several warrants for robbery and weapons charges against him.~Hal Erickson
