Adam-12 - Malloy and Reed Roll in TMG's Tin-Plated 'Classic Collection'
2-DVD set with 13 episodes is coming this April from the Shout! Factory subsidiary
Posted by David Lambert
Los Angeles...the '70s. Officers Pete Malloy and Jim Reed are on patrol - and the streets are a never-ending crime wave of arsonists, con artists, nude drunk drivers, loan sharks, drug busts, shootings, gangs and bombings. It's all going down, and so are the crooks, courtesy of the city's finest.
Created by Jack Webb, Adam-12 was a spin-off of the popular NBC-TV series Dragnet and similarly portrayed incidents and situations that were based on real LAPD cases. The names may have been changed, but the cars, badges and drama remained the same. The show aired for seven seasons on NBC from 1968-1975.
So strap in tight for a retro ride-along with Officers Malloy (Martin Milner) and Reed (Kent McCord) as they burn rubber through the streets of L.A. in the Classic Collection of the police drama classic Adam-12.
With all 7 seasons of the classic cop show Adam-12 already available on DVD, Shout! Factory has decided to go back and provide a new low-cost option for casual fans of the show to enjoy. So they've engaged their subsidiary company, Timeless Media Group, to schedule an April 9th release of Adam-12 - Classic Collection: Embossed Tin Edition. This 2-DVD set comes in - you guessed it! - an embossed tin package with 13 of the original show's episodes, and the price is just $11.49 SRP. Here's a button link to pre-order it from Amazon at an even lower price, followed by a look at the tin box it comes in:
