Producer Arthur Annechirico thought he'd struck gold when he rebooted The Munsters as The Munsters Today. and got three seasons out of that series. However, when he tried to revive two of Jack Webb's crime dramas, something got lost in the translation.
We've previously covered The New Dragnet. That means it's time to check in on The New Adam-12, which also had two seasons encompassed over 1 calendar year. That's because, for reasons known only to the producers, season 2 began in the spring. Little did Annechirico realize that he had actually started a trend that was later picked up by cable networks.
Peter Parros (ex-Knight Rider) and Ethan Wayne co-star in this update of the original series. It's an update because the original cops, Pete Malloy (Martin Milner) & Jim Reed (Kent McCord) are still with the LAPD, long since promoted to Captain and Lieutenant, respectively. Unfortunately, the chemistry they demonstrated was not revived, as Milner & McCord appeared separately, on back-to-back weeks.
NBC-Universal has no plans to issue this series on DVD, though supposedly it's available on Hulu. The intro was posted to YouTube.
No rating, as I never saw the show.
