    I have watched quite a few episodes of Emergency on Hulu. Right now I am watching Dragnet episodes. Just started season 4 of Dragnet.
    Speaking of Jack Webb and Dragnet, his Mark VII Limited production company also produced Emergency! and Adam-12. The first 5 (of 7) seasons of Adam-12 are on Netflix. Season six is due out on DVD Jan 17, so it should hit Netflix in the not too distant future. One of his last few shows was Project U.F.O., which I'd like to get hold of, but I've only found it in torrents and I want to stay away from that.

    I forgot if it has been mentioned, but John Gage and Roy Desoto had their first tv appearance on an episode of Adam-12. I wouldn't call Emergency! a spinoff, though. The characters were only on camera for a quick couple of lines of dialogue. Webb just used Adam-12 to introduce his new show's main characters.

      Dang, and here I thought I was one of the few youngsters that watched the show. Believe me, I took over the TV on Saturday night when Emergency came on. Some day I hope to go out to California to see the station that was Station 51.

        Here's a great "reunion" of the cast on GMA in 1986:

            The Emergency! episode is from season one and is called "Hang-up". The Adam-12 episode they were watching is from season 4 and is called "Ambush".

            Reed, Malloy, Gage and DeSoto are portrayed as real guys in Adam-12, but Reed and Malloy are shown as make-believe tv characters on Emergency!

            Now it gets good. Marco Lopez was a sheriff's deputy in the Adam-12 episode, so he was watching himself on the "Hang-up" episode.

              I watched "Camera Bug" from season 4 tonight and noticed that a victim on the show was, Angelo De Meo, the same guy as we most most often saw as an ambulance attendant. I knew he had been used as an orderly in the first season or two, but didn't remember him being anything else other than the attendant. I looked him up and found that he was an attendant, an orderly, a firefighter, a victim, SWAT leader, and other misc. roles on nearly 50 episodes. On top of that, he was Randolf Mantooth's (Johnny's) stunt double in several shows. That explains the hairy arms Johnny had on some of his tougher rescues.

              Looking through the rest of the cast, it seems that most of the ambulance attendants had other roles as policemen, victims, etc. Harold Frizzell was an ambulance attendant in more shows than De Meo, but had fewer appearances as other characters. I guess actors were still contracted by studios in the 70's. In earlier decades, actors on contract with a studio would appear in pretty much every show or movie that studio put out.
