Emergency!

When I was a kid, one of my favorite shows was Emergency! about the lives and careers of two paramedics. Plus cops and doctors. Very cool. It's nice to see Randolph Mantooth and Kevin Tighe still around and kickin'.

holy crap I've seen that Law and Order eppy in Kevin's bio and didn't recognize him at all.

Randolph was my third ever celebrity crush as a child (Spock and Sulu being # 1 &2). I adored Emergency 51

I recognized Kevin in Lost, and thought I could place him as the guy in Emergency! but didn't bother looking him up. Then I saw Randolph in Criminal Minds and found both of them on IMDB.

Bet that old show is on DVD....

My dad used to watch Emergency and Adam-12 so I have a huge amount of affection for both shows. They seem so simple and sweet compared to today's shows.

In the reviews on Netflix, a father relates showing the show to his young son. One of the paramedics gets ready to give a patient a shot. The son winces, but then of course, they don't show it.

I used to love Emergency, but after riding ambulance for 3 years? It makes me really anxious. Probably has more to do with how I feel about all the things we WEREN'T qualified to do (only EMT's), but it gets my pulse racing - and not in a good way!

Sara mentioned Adam 12 - and I loved that then & now. I used to think those officers were SO HANDSOME(?). What was I 9?
