ADAM-12 was created by Robert A. Cinader and Jack Webb (Dragnet). This second series was made in 1969 and broadcast from 1969/70, and again invites the viewer to accompany police officers Pete Malloy (Martin Milner) and Jim Reed (Kent McCord) as they patrol the mean streets of Los Angeles. A myriad of problems, including the likes of gangs, drugs, and snipers confront the officers in the line of duty.

Produced as a spin-off from Jack Webb's classic 1950's crime series DRAGNET, stylistically 'Adam-12' echoes many of it's predecessor's qualities. Based on real-life cases, with careful attention to detail, the show's authenticity is backed up with good performances, with Messrs Milner and McCord sharing a good on-screen rapport. The dialogue is also realistic.

Directed at a good pace, the sometimes gritty action is skilfully condensed to fit into each episode's 25-minute duration, without ever leaving the viewer feeling short-changed. In fact, the episodes occasionally feel like a 50-minute story minus the 'padding'.
To combat the rising levels of violent crime in L.A. at the time, interestingly this second series sees the introduction of L.A.'s elite marksmen of the newly formed S.W.A.T. team.

I was surprised to see there were currently no reviews for this series on this side of the pond, so a big thanks to the reviewers on Amazon.com for clueing me up on this series, which is a straight forward, no-nonsense (and un-cheesy) cop show. They don't make em' like these anymore!
Filmed in colour, the quality of the prints used for this 4-disc set are very good, there are no subtitles.

*Commentaries with Police Officers in Los Angeles.
*Historic Police Photo Gallery.
*Ride Along Fact Track.

I managed to buy the first series of Adam 12 and although the formatting is little unusual I liked the characters and I liked the way it's based on true events. Series two is more of the same. It is very documentary in style but the actors work hard to behave like real policeman. Very well made. Quality location 35mm filming - Excellent stuff!

RIP Martin Milner (1931-2015) . Spent many days as a youngster in the 70s catching Adam 12...an American cultural icon.

HASH(0x8d718c24) out of 5 stars Jack Webb must be smiling! And so are we............ 2 Oct. 2008
By G. M. Schoditsch - Published on Amazon.com

SHOUT Factory has done a superb job with its treatment of Adam-12: Season Two! Neatly packaged with duel slimline cases with picture discs, this release shows Universal CAN do it right, with the right marketer at the helm. SHOUT Factory, a division of Universal Studios has reversed the substandard muck of previous Jack Webb sets; i.e. Dragnet 1967 - Season 1, Adam-12 - Season One and all of the Emergency seasons!

Gone are discs with muddy audio, video with artifactual trash, and discs that froze or simply wouldn't play at all. This second season of Adam-12 is presented exactly the way we remember it! Most episodes are a whopping 25 minutes long, including the Jack Webb trademark MARK VII Limited AND the Universal Studios ending. All 26 episodes are present with some great bonus features.

Ten stars for crisp video & audio, a complete season w/bonus features, a super friendly price and fantastic production and authoring of a classic treasure!

HASH(0x8d81d204) out of 5 stars Great job Shout Factory! Too bad you guys didn't do season one! 5 Oct. 2008
By M. Bowyer - Published on Amazon.com

Very good release of Adam-12's second season. I can't believe that after three years season two has finally been released. Too bad Shout Factory didn't release season one. The release of season one by Universal had cheap double-sided discs that were full of problems. I had to return my season one set three times and I still have problems with the set that I ended up with. The transfers were good, but the discs themselves had many problems. Enough talk of season one. This is about season two, right? This is a handsomely packaged, four disc set. All single-sided discs housed in two thin slipcases. I had no problems with any of the discs. Thanks for the extras, but can't someone get Marty and Kent for any sort of commentary or interview? I'm not complaining, but since both guys are still around one would think they'd be asked to contribute something. The season itself is great and I thoroughly enjoyed every episode. This is the season Reed and his wife have their baby. The boys have lots of adventures and all of the episodes are good. Highly recommended! Hopefully it won't take another three years for season three.

HASH(0x8db3412c) out of 5 stars Fantastic! Season Two is On the Way! 20 Jun. 2008
By THE Discerning Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com

"1 Adam 12, 1 Adam 12" Wow! It has been a long time coming, but it seems that Season Two is on the way. This show stayed consistently strong throughout its entire run. If you enjoyed Season One, you will also enjoy Season Two. I hope they release the entire series of this high quality and highly entertaining police show. The fact that fantastic shows like this are taken for granted today is more of a reflection on the current state of our society (and its mindless shows) rather than the quality of the programming of these older shows. Here's hoping we will see the soon release of the remaining seasons of Dragnet and Emergency! on DVD.

HASH(0x8d684258) out of 5 stars Adam-12 Season Two 8 Oct. 2008
By Nicholas Donvito Sr. - Published on Amazon.com

Great TV show and my absolute favorite. This came us just before I went into the Army and then onto Vietnam, but I never forgot the series. I has always liked Jack Webb in anything and being and adopted member of the LAPD he had all the inside info on how the department ran and what invetigations he had access to. This inspired me to go onto a 28 year police career in upstate NY, retiring in 1999 as a Sergeant. Although I held ranks as an Investigator, SGT. LT and Chief of Police in two local departments. But I liked my supervisors job the best and that's what I went back to the last five years of my career. No regrets, it was my favorite rank just like Sgt. McDonald on the TV Series. Nick Donvito, Camillus, NY.

HASH(0x8d684c24) out of 5 stars Makes me want to SHOUT! 3 Oct. 2008
By William Smith - Published on Amazon.com
I suppose I could start off with the bad news.. Now I know this is 1969 and TV was a bit different in this era but I must say, the casting of many of the people Jim and Pete interact with are simply not credible. Thats a nice way to say; they can't act... however they can OVER act, and do it well. The same went for the first season which seemed a bit worse in this regard and I so hoped season 2 would be different but alas it isn't.

Now since I've got that off my chest let me just say I love these guys! The two leads in character, Jim Reed and Pete Malloy just gel. They just do. I LOVE to hear the banter of married life versus bachelorhood and the various other topics they square off about. I love Malloys no nonsense demeanor and Reeds (seemingly!) cool collected innocence (see; Baby!). I really like how the show has some loose threads going that get picked up and dropped from time to time, shows a real forward thinking in the writing department.

All in all, SHOUT! Factory is to be given major props for just getting this great show out the door, nevermind that transfers are BRILLIANT and while the extras are a bit tepid, they are there for a rainy day when Season Three is still on the drawing board... throw in handsome artwork and a meager price tag and you have a winner. And praise be NO FLIPPER discs! No not the dolphin, the discs that Universal thrust upon so many ruined boxsets (Dragnet, Quincy, A Team..)

I don't know if anyone else noticed this but in the episode A Sound Like Thunder, blondie Pete Malloy is wearing a decidedly GOLD shirt, and black haired Reed is wearing a strikingly Blue shirt. Know of any other 1969 duo who matches those exact colors and descriptions? I'll let the jury decide that:)
