Funny. Adam-12 could be slow-paced sometimes, that's true. It was definately a drama. It influences alot that came after, because it had alot of the staple "police drama" conventions, a veteran cop who just lost his partner takes on an emotional maverick rookie. That's like the staple of all staples.

I watched a lot of The Jeffersons and Sanford And Son (my grandma LOVED Sanford and Son, and she was one of the most racist people I ever knew).  Reruns of I Dream Of Jeannie (the animated opening scared me when I was very little) and The Munsters I also watched frequently; Bewitched and Green Acres I loved too.

Just finished watching UFO on DVD.  The 1969 version of what the far off future of 1980 will look like  BounceGiggle  The stories could have been better, but I really got a kick out of the whole look of the show.  The girls on Moonbase with their purple wigs were my favorite.

Anyone remember Space 1999?. Mid to late 70's sci-fi series with an unusual concept. In the future, an explosion of nuclear waste that has been stored on the moon send the satellite into space on it's own, with the members of a lunar colony still on it. Wow.

Sure we used to watch that; I think it was produced in England, syndicated to independents and local stations (WPIX channel 11 out of New York for my area) starring MARTIN LANDAU and BARBARA BAIN.

Did Adam-12 have theme music? As a child I remember the show would open up with the sound of a radio call to "Adam-12", but I don't remember theme music.

Oh yeah, I've got the first season on DVD.  It was made by the same people who made UFO, Gerry and Sylvia Anderson.  The first season was awesome, if a bit languid in the pacing department.  I remember the second season descended into silliness though.

1 adam 12, 1 adam 12, see the man on the corner,

If I remember right (which is rare), the show used Plymouth Belvedere's in early episodes and AMC Matador's in later ones.

Ooooh . . . good one.  I remember it being advertised on TV a lot when I was a kid.  I probably saw it a few times but I don't remember anything about it.

Whenever Dorothy fought with ex-husband Stanley on The Golden Girls this 70's show came to my mind:

This is what Robbie Rist was doing right after his Cousin Oliver drove a stake in the Brady Bunch's feeble hearts.

Here's a typical episode description:

Peter Panic

First aired: September 18, 1976

John must find out who is stealing cookies from his pantry.



Believe it or not, this series only lasted one short but memorable season.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
