Emergency!

Anyone remember this show from the 70's? I got the complete series box sets for Christmas.

Somehow, and maybe it was because I was so young, it was my favorite show. Besides the bad acting and the fact that every actor seemed to have a voice that sounded like they smoked 3 packs of cigarettes a day, it still is worth a watch, if only to remind the viewer that no matter how bad the acting in an old tv show, it is still better than the SW prequel acting.

LOL.....last week during some down time my Sgt and I were talking about this. He's 8yrs older than I am so I pretty much remember a lot of the same stuff (for the most part). Remember watching this as a kid with my older brother. I actually watched the intros with my Sgt, he googled some quip they were always saying, something like "give me a 101 drip STAT" or something like that, lol.....

However I can say with complete accuracy that the series does NOT hold up to the test of time, lol...

We still watch this show in the fire service. We make rookies watch, laugh at the super old school stuff, and point out the things we still do to this day. It's the most realistic show about this job ever, and every Firefighter and/or Medic should know who Johnny and Roy are.

Holy crap, Lucas had to be a fan of this show while writing the OT. There is this episode with Roy talking a kid through landing a plane cuz his dad had a heart attack while flying a plane. The only thing I think the kid said was "I'll try!" I had to pull the Yoda voice and yelled "DO OR DO NOT, THERE IS NO TRY!"
