25/25! havent missed more than two or three episodes since i started watching in january. adam-12 is my all time favorite show, which is sort of strange since i'm 15, haha! usually kids my age are into much newer media, but i prefer the old stuff.
In addition to his usual asides, Kent McCord also made the best joke with Jack Webb in Dragnet.

You got 21 out of 25. I rarely pay attention to the guest star's names.
I am old enough to recognize many of the voices, especially Barbara Nichols. One of them was even the father of a very good friend of Kent McCord, Rick Nelson.

You got 21 out of 25. I love the show but never paid attention to the guest stars' names. For example, Darren from Bewitched was in today's 1st episode, but I don't know his name.
That was the second Darren and second Richard too, Sargent.

Didn't get them all right, but the last question has a special place in my heart. That day I became a U.S. Marine. It's the day I graduated U.S. Marine Corps Boot camp at Parris Island South Carolina. Semper Fi Adam-12!
The best friend in my life, our class counselor, was one of the first women Marines of World War Two.
"The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!" —Eleanor Roosevelt, 1945

Didn't miss one. Adam-12 is my favorite show. When I was growing up my favorite t.v. shows were Adam-12, Emergency, Police Story and Dragnet. Which is what put me on the path to public service. I later became a Firefighter/Paramedic and went through the Police academy to become a Sheriffs deputy and later a SWAT Medic. Never get rid of these shows METV.
Coming from an up/down marriage, I was fortunate to have support from the longest serving civil deputy, and acting sheriff, in Oklahoma history, my mom!

22/25. One of my favorites and missed 3? Missed 3, 11, 15. This could have been a hour show. Just a really great show back then. Great cast. Like Malloy more than Reed. Nothing compares to this show today. Actually loved Dragnet, Adam 12 and Emergency. They were really great and relevant even today.
Jack Webb's loyalty to his friends is unmatched in Hollywood. Especially Art Ballinger and William Boyett. (Do you know Art's first, off screen, role on Dragnet?

Actually, these question are more suitable for "Cash Cab". They are more general, genre, information than trivia.

Unlike DRAGNET on Adam 12 we never got a final epilogue telling us what became of the criminals they arrested. The show just went abruptly to closing credits. ♣
I do not recall any of the several Dragnets doing that. Emergency did have a reflective montage though.
Actually ALL the Dragnets had a "final epilogue" telling the sentences the bad guys
got after being convicted. The stations you grew up watching Dragnet on must have lopped
off the ending for more commercial room. The JLTV network runs the original Dragnet from
the 1950's on Fridays at 5 PM.
They just ran the one with a very young Lee Marvin as a serial killer, it was riveting and better written than any of the color episodes from the late 1960's run.
If it's on You Tube, that episode is well worth checking out, Marvin was brilliant.
...and, true to Jack Webb's amazing loyalty to his friends, Art Ballinger also appeared in every Mark 7 series.

Good choice of words. Quiz is more appropriate than trivia.
