Sorry, and fire away..........
    No problem. When I am wrong, I am wrong. I will always admit it.

    When I was thinking about this, I thought that the HO thing was too long ago to be Eddie Murphy. You see, I am old enough to remember the first season of SNL.

    The cast of the first few seasons of SNL were, without a doubt, the best.

    The show did go downhill after Belushi died.Remember the old man on the train(Belushi)remembering his days on the show and his friends before they passed on?How ironic,huh?
    Maybe it's just me but I didn't recall the show being as politically motivated in what they call"humor".They used to poke fun at everything,now it all seems to be based on liberal views of what's right and wrong with the country.

    I don't want to see a movie, lets bring it back as a series! You know the "real" squad 51 works in Universal City, I've seen it. Still a pickup with a utility body. E-51 was out doing inspections.


    Dispatch Squad 51

    There are several fan sites, this one's pretty good...
    http://www.emergencyfans.com/index.html

    Hmmm, 1st season on DVD... The 1st season had the best theme song too.
    I see on one of the fan sites the season 2 will be out in Feb!!!!

    That series did more to inspire me to be a firefighter than any other single thing, and I know a lot of my brothers are in the same category.

    My county's 5 volunteer departments are numbered going clockwise from the SW corner, 1 through 5. Yes,West McCracken Fire and Rescue DOES have a rescue unit numbered 51.It is unknown to me if they have gotten tired of the"Where's Johnny and Roy?"questions.

    It would be nice to see a modern version of LA County fire doing their thing. The fire TV shows just dont cut it.

    There is some SUPER embarrassing show done a few years back showing LA CITY type drinking and smoozing in the station. Total sad case.

    I think the fire service tv show and mainstream primetime are just like oil and water. They dont mix.

    Thought all you "Emergency" junkies might enjoy a look at Engine 7 at Yosemite National Park.....

My dream — and I hope you don't find this too crazy — is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."

    Like someone said about shows like"Rescue Me" and "Third Watch",the shows about various public servants are basically soap operas due to all the happenings that occur in the season on a near daily basis that would rarely happen in the real world.

    That was my favorite show when I was a wee tot. I wanted to be like Roy and Johnny. I can't help but giggle when I see it now, but I still love it. My big question is this:

    If there were to be a question sheet assigned to each episode, with questions appropriate to today's treatment modalities, could we count it as CE for the National Registry?

    For example: "In episode 21 the construction foreman experienced chest pain and then collapsed, what was the rythm on the monitor and what would be the proper ACLS treatment?" (No, it's not bi-carb.)

    Season 2 is coming? OHBOYOHBOYOHBOYOHBOYOHBOY

    I just figured out how to rip my DVDs into MPEG4 files, so I am making each episode about 177MB so I can put them on CompactFlash cards and watch them on my PDA on the plane while traveling the next two months. Ah, the benefits of being a nerd.

    And jeez, I forgot about that flop that Fox put out about LA Fire. Was it City? I know it turned out to be something that rhymed with "ity", hence the short lived airing.

    Now if they break out Code Red with Lorne Greene, that would be another set I'd pick up.

    my favorite one was when they had to rescue the person stuck to the bottom of the pool by the drain suction.....remember that one???

    Actually I don't care for most of the twits out there in Hollyweird. Blows me away that guys drool over them and when you take away the makeup they are butt ugly. Ever seen Britney without makeup?

    Then there's the plastic surgery. I guess some people want to be recycled into a Corvette when they die.

    Just don't like women to look like a common street walker.

    I do remember that one, they used a K-Saw to cut the vic out. Wicked Cool Man!


    I can also remember them using a Porta-Power for rescue work in some episodes.

    NBC-online - Emergency: Season 1

    Amazon.com - Emergency: Season 1

    And this site advertises the entire series package, but I suspect it must be a pirate version.

    Crazy Sandman - Emergency: Entire Series DVD
    Judging from the number of episodes for all of the seasons I think it is a pirated version. Santa brought me season one, and there are two double sided disks, with three episodes per side. Total Emergency viewing time 10hrs 55 minutes. Already watched it once and loved it. Cant wait for season 2!
