12 out of 12! I broke my ankle in 2013 and watched every single episode of Adam-12 repeatedly while I was recovering. I watched them UNCUT on Antenna TV. Shame on MeTV for hacking these great shows to pieces. SHAME!!!!!

Now that is what I'm talking about - 12/12! Kent McCord's age was the one I had to think about for a moment. But got it.

12/12. I’ve got experience. I’m no fresh-faced recruit. You can say that again. I was already married when “Adam-12” debuted. (Sigh)

They also did rear projection for some shots. Also, Malloy had several girlfriends over the run of the show, not just Judy at the end of the show.

Debatable- Malloy has a few dates but not really considered girlfriends.

I wonder if he would have actually gotten engaged to her if the show ran for one more season.
