Shout Factory has done another great job with the release of Adam-12 season 3. Sound and picture quality are excellent. All 26 episodes on 4 single sided discs with the same menu style as season 2, only disappointment is the lack of special features with this set. Perhaps one day Shout Factory may be able to add interviews with some cast members? Hope the remaining seasons are released in a timely fashion.

Adam-12 returns to DVD for another great season Aug. 10 2009
By T.J. Hooker - Published on
I got hooked on Adam-12 when Tv Land aired it a few years ago. It's one of the best done cop shows that has ever aired on television. It has a serious, straight forward look at life on the streets, but there is plenty of humor to give it a perfect balance. Dranget and Emergency also blended well. Jack Webb was in charge of all of the shows mentioned above. I can only hope that Shout Factory will release the rest of Adam-12 and then release the final three years of Dragnet. I am shocked that Dragnet did not sell well enough to continue releasing it. Anyway, buy the third season of Adam-12, you won't regret it.

Not their best - but we still love it! March 13 2011
By AshleyM - Published on
Not sure if the director changed? Writers changed? Jack Webb got too involved in this season??? But, the acting by main characters (especially Malloy) and the extras changed a lot and not for the better. The acting is stiff in many episodes - the terminology used is beyond hokey at times - such as Beji yelling out Dadio (episode 3 The Purse snachter) - this is the late 60s Mr. Webb!!! It is obvious that the "bad acting" has to be the writers/directors/Jack Webb as many of the extras have appeared in other episodes, other seasons and were much better!
But there are a few episodes that are really good! My favorite is when Malloy realizes in roll call that his license has expired and Reed finally gets to drive! This is an excellent episode and by itself brings the 3 stars up to a 4. Adam 12 is one of our FAVORITE series! Where is season 6&7??? I've watched them on Netflix, they have to be out there???
Here is a breakdown of episodes available on season 3:

Season 3, Episode 1: Log 174: Loan Sharks
Original Air Date--19 September 1970

They investigate the beatings of several people in a factory parking lot only to reveal a gambling/loan shark operation with the heavies working over those behind on their loan payments. One lone schoolboy stands up to the organization and commits himself to help the police and testify in court. Along their way they arrest an armed robber of a liquor store who out of guilt could only take $2 from the attendant, and was subsequently robbed himself.

MacDonald monitor from unmarked cars. Once the gang is apprehended, Malloy takes on Benji's inattentive father who can't seem to get it through his thick skull that purse snatching is a serious crime. Returning from their two days off, they respond to a 2-11 in progress where they find the store owner hit by a bullet and Benji, who was released after only one day, wielding a gun. Armed and desperate, Benji holes up in an alley where Malloy, Reed and Benji's father try to talk him out. An emotional discussion between Benji and Dad reveal the heart of the troubled youth. Dad tries to disarm Benji, with shattering results.

While at the station, Malloy and Reed decide to check in on Harold to discover he doesn't see the burglar's mugshot in the books. When they give Harold a ride home, Harold spots the burglar. Malloy and Reed make a successful, albeit bullet riddled, arrest and solve the crime while proving Harold's brilliance to the police department's doubting detectives.

Great Job on Season 3 of Adam 12! Aug. 16 2009

I just spent the last 2 days doing my own version of a mini marathon watching Adam 12 - Season 3. Shout Factory came through with another fine product. There were no difficulties with watching the DVDs. The picture was crisp and clean, colors were not faded and worn out. The audio was also nicely done! Great job! I look forward to buying Season 4 whenever it becomes available.

This is my favorite series (other than Star Trek).

I'm guessing the citizens of Los Angeles would like for Malloy and Reid to still be on the job. Cops don't come any more honest and law-abiding than these two. You could probably look at this as a lighter version of Jack Webb's Dragnet, since he also produced this show. Great shots of an earlier LA. Good clean fun from 1970.

Good Cop TV Series Never Get Old, They're Classics! June 4 2010
By dmak - Published on

Shoutfactory has done it again with its production of this classic television series. Picture quality is superb! Audio is digitally remastered mono, very well done for a 40 year old series. Written in the Jack Webb, " Tell it like it is/was", style, the shows still are relevant today.
