I am like the Jehovah's Witness of Adam-12.I am constantly spreading the word about Adam-12, telling everyone I know what a great show it is, how much I love it, and trying to convince everyone that they should watch it. Sometimes it works and I can persuade someone to watch at least a few episodes.
I recently convinced one of my friends to give the show a try. After watching the first 2 episodes my newest convert asked me if the creator of the show hated children. I can understand why she would think that since Baby Gladys almost dies in episode 1 and those two boys in episode 2 get very sick after getting into their mother's stash of narcotics. I responded to her question by telling her that I thought Jack Webb was just trying to show the viewers that police officers not only arrested people but also helped people. But now, after watching the first seven episodes in more detail I am beginning to wonder if maybe she was on to something. Almost every episode features at least one child in some sort of life-threatening danger.
In case you don't remember:
|Baby Gladys almost died in episode 1. Malloy saved her.|
|In episode 2, this boy...|
|and his brother got sick after getting into their mother's stash.|
|This baby was held hostage by a madman with a gun in episode 3. Malloy saved this baby, too.|
|In episode 4 Malloy found the missing Mark Bussey in the basement watching his pet cat give birth. Mark was fine, but his mother did say she was going to kill him.|
|Malloy is happy because no children were in danger during episode 5.|
|In episode 6 baby Hannah was thrown from her mother's car when it crashed.|
|In episode 7 Reed had to perform CPR on Cissy after she fell in the pool|
