PostSubject: Most Phony Episode   Sun Dec 18, 2011 1:25 am

While we're all fans of the show, we all have an episode we hate.....you know, the one that's so phony it can't possibly be true by any means like they claim....

I think mine is in season 4, episode 12 entitled "the Dinosaur". This is where a veteran officer is fully retired due to being injured in the line of duty, and recovers enough to return to the job 8 years later. With no recurrent training, they just give him a badge and a gun and put him back to work (of course with Reed and Malloy). He keeps screwing up because he is 'out of step' with the current times and laws. We all know they would never do something like that...and everytime that episode comes up, I have to skip over it.

Ok, so lets hear about your least favorite episode and why.

I always hated "The Search."
I watched it as a kid when it originally aired in October - Nov 1971. It was not the last episode in Season 4. This is the episode when Malloy flips the 1971 Plymouth Satellite during a 211 pursuit and destroys it. Although, in the crash sequence they changed the car to a 69 Plymouth Satellite, he was driving the 71 when the chase started. They had just gotten the car back from the garage.

The next week, the 71 Plymouth is back in service with the "83012" garage number on it. Factually, the garage number would not have been replaced because it dealt with the mantainance records for a particular car. They should have reversed the story line and given him a 70 Montego to destroy.

I agree that "The Dinosaur" was pretty weak. However, even the worst Adam 12 episodes are better than most of the new cop shows that are out on network TV!

Also if you noticed the Federal Intercepter siren box still had power why didn't he just turn it on wail or yelp?Or maybe when he flipped the car he tore the siren speaker off the roof???

PostSubject: The Dinosaur episode   Tue Dec 31, 2013 4:34 am

I also thought "The Dinosaur" was a little strange as well. A former police officer decides to come back to work as a street cop after an eight-year hiatus and they put him back on the road without any re-training? Eight years is a long time to be out of the game to not be re-certified in one's job, especially when dealing with law enforcement issues. Although it is feasible he could have come back to work after eight years, it's totally unreasonable they would ever put any man back on the road without making him play catch-up on current laws, technologies, etc. Maybe we were supposed to assume this had been done prior to him saddling up again - Who knows . . .

I take it this site has been all but abandoned because after a full week there's been ZERO activity here, not to mention there don't seem to be any activity on the site in general which is a real shame  Neutral

good call on the Dinosaur, mine is the one where the hispanic or possibly Indian family of three are living on the street and early in the show see them in the city. Later on Pete and Jim are called to the hills of LA and see them sleeping but their baby has wandered off, of course it is found, but tough to believe.

I just watched that episode. Really makes me wonder just how today's police would treat people who have to sleep out under the stars. Something tells me they wouldn't be as cordial as Malloy & Reed were but sadly times have changed.

Although I watched all these episodes when the show was in production, I recently watched all seven seasons on Netflix. I'm retired and home all day so I can knock out five or six episodes a day. I finished up the last episode and decided to start over because I realized last year while watching Star Trek: Voyager that Netflix didn't always advance to the next episode the way it should and would sometimes skip an episode every fourth or fifth show, so I started over watching Adam-12 again and sure enough I've seen a few eps I missed the first time around. If you're watching this series on Netflix be careful of the episode it advances you to because it just might be skipping some...

I've been a police officer for fifteen years and we often deal with homeless people in the summertime. I'm polite, but also cautious. Many a homeless person is mentally ill, often have some type of disease such as AIDS or hep C,addicted to drugs and very possibly has an arrest warrant out of another state. They also frequently carry weapons since the nature of their lifestyle is a dangerous one. It makes sense to treat them politely since being a jerk cop might provoke them into something that you don't want to happen.
