Although Adam-12 slipped a bit in the ratings during its sixth season, ranking 23rd as opposed to the previous season's Number 11 slot, the series remained America's most popular half-hour dramatic series. In fact, by 1973 it was America's only half-hour dramatic series. In hopes of enlivening the series' format, the producers took LAPD officers Malloy (Martin Milner) and Reed (Kent McCord) away from their usual beat, and allowed them to tool their familiar squad car to a variety of different districts and divisions. This season, the partners did duty at LAX, the Los Angeles Harbor, the Foothill District, the West Valley area, Venice, Van Nuys, and both Hollywood and North Hollywood. The best of these location jaunts occurred in the two-parter "Skywatch," in which Malloy and Reed worked with the department's helicopter division, an assignment distinguished by some truly breathtaking aerial footage. ~ Hal Erickson
As a former patrol officer, this program brought back many memories of my days on the force. Although it is somewhat outdated, the procedural elements of the show are very accurate. It depicts the highs and lows of law enforcement in an entertaining way!
