    That was one of the first TV shows I saw in color when we finally got rid of our 13" B&W for a 20" Color console.

    Depends...
    My wife wants to go, but she's working, (she's a nurse), so unless she can swap shifts with someone... We did go to the old "museum" in Bellflower, which use to open once a month, a couple of years ago. She had a great time sat in Squad 51 operating the lights and siren...

    Ooh...would be cool to see Reed and Malloy.

    Kind of like that Energency episode where the guys were watching ADAM-12 and kept getting called away so they didn't see how the show ended.

    A couple of years back Netflix had the whole Adam-12 series on. I binge watched the first two seasons :geek:
    I recognized about 90% of the exterior shoot locations since I grew up in the L.A. area where they filmed them. The exterior station shots were the old Rampart Division building on Temple St, which later became infamous for the CRASH anti-gang unit scandal. The close up neighborhood scenes were shot in the Universal Studios backlot.
    We kids in the neighborhood grew up watching both Adam-12 and EMERGENCY. It would be fun to go visit the museum.
    Thanks for posting the info :thumbsup:
