As Adam-12 begins its third season, former rookie cop Jim Reed (Kent McCord) is promoted to full officer. No one is happier about this promotion than Jim's crusty veteran partner Pete Malloy (Martin Milner), who has regarded Reed as an equal all along. The supporting cast this season includes such series stalwarts as William Boyett as Sgt. McDonald and Gary Crosby as Officer Ed Wells. The one "new" cast member, Claude Johnson as Officer Norm Green, isn't new at all: during the past season, actor Johnson was seen from time to time in a similar role, as Officer Brinkman. Also, there are a number of noteworthy guest stars, including film noir regular Marie Windsor, legendary comedian Morey Amsterdam, and former singing star Dorothy Shay (aka "The Park Avenue Hillbilly"). The season's best episode is "Log 105 - Elegy for a Pig." Narrated by Pete Malloy, the episode recounts the last hours in the life of Pete's former partner, who had been killed in the line of duty. In other episodes, the partners must deal with street gangs, arsonists, a car-theft ring using beautiful girls as come-ons, game poachers, a misguided band of militants, and at least one naked motorist! Although it was fashionable amongst certain "hip" circles to deride Adam-12 as corny and reactionary, the public at large certainly didn't feel that way: the series ended its third season as America's 12th highest-rated program. ~ Hal Erickson
