      This episode of Adam-12 is one of the more intense ones. It guest stars Richard Van Vleet, best known for All My Children actually, as a friend of Jim’s (Kent McCord) who also went through the Academy went him. The friend ends up shot and killed in a store robbery. It’s really sad, knowing the difference paramedics could have made (and this, of course, was before paramedics

      existed). Jim is upset by his friend’s mortal wound, and the veteran cop, Pete (Martin Milner) has to keep a close eye on his partner, whose his mind isn’t necessarily on the job.

      Jim does a lot of talking about his friends and their plans for their upcoming downtine, something that bugs Pete a little, but which is probably therapeutic and would be encouraged today.

      There’s a traffic stop segment where ...

      • the boys pull over a drunk driver, played by Ken Swofford. Swofford ended up having a lot of personal problems in later years, and whenever I see him, that’s where my mind goes. His difficulties essentially finished his career. Regardless, it’s a fairly standard scene.

        I’ve never thought of Adam-12 as being a nostalgic type of show, except when the boys do ‘7′ and enjoy a meal, where

        tacos are just 35 cents. Now those were the days!

        All in all, this is an okay show. It’s meant to convey a message and express the loss of a fellow officer, but it’s never been a favorite of mine. There’s nothing that really draws me to it, and it’s one of the episodes I tend to multitask during. Maybe it’s just too downbeat; I’m not really sure.
