As the viewer quickly finds out about Adam-12's two clean-cut, no-nonsense, police officers, Pete Malloy and Jim Reed - These were, definitely, a couple of very civic-minded, law-enforcing dudes who were rarely, if ever, gonna fire their guns at any suspect (unless, of course, it was absolutely necessary).

And so, with that in mind, you can be sure to find that TV's Adam-12 was, by far, a lot less gun-crazy and violent as were most other cop shows on the boob-tube at the time.

With its stories ranging from the tragic to the trivial - Adam-12 conscientiously strove to portray a sense of authentic realism when it involved the day-to-day routines of police officers Malloy and Reed.

Filmed in and around L.A. - This 2-disc set contains all twenty-six, half-hour episodes from Adam-12's first season (1968-1969).

Produced by Jack Webb (of Dragnet fame) - Adam-12 proudly boasted that its cases were all actually taken directly from real police files (only the names were changed to protect the innocent - natch).
