Emergency Season 1 (1972)
|When the call goes out, they answer it on 11 action-packed episodes of the complete first season of Emergency!, the pioneering TV series that was one of the first to show the real-life drama of those who save lives every day. Race to the scene with the heroic men on paramedic Squad 51 and the emergency staff of Rampart Hospital as they respond round-the-clock to LA's most dire emergencies, from women in labor to an out-of-control epidemic.|
Kevin Tighe and Randolph Mantooth lead an acclaimed cast as two hard-working paramedics trying to deal with the daily crises of their jobs with wit, humor and bravery. Along for the ride in the complete season are such popular guest stars as Tony Dow, Ronne Troup and Jeff Donnell. Including the thrilling TV movie The Wedsworth-Townsend Act and available on DVD for the first time ever, it's the gripping series that blazed the trail for all action series to come!
Editor's NoteThe hit television program EMERGENCY! was a landmark in a number of ways. Created during the early years of paramedics and emergency medical procedures, the program featured the experiences of two likable EMS men, Roy DeSoto and John Cage, as they raced around Los Angeles saving people from a variety of life-threatening situations. Assisting them in their efforts are their allies and friends in the local hospital, police, and fire departments. Created by Jack Webb, the star and producer of DRAGNET, EMERGENCY! emphasized realism and a positive view of emergency institutions, much like Webb's earlier program. In fact, it was even credited with spreading knowledge about EMS throughout the country, just as Webb intended. EMERGENCY! SEASON ONE contains the first 11 episodes of the program.
