    For those who have yet to purchase the dvds, the best prices I could find (for both seasons) were at Target. Just FYI.

    Lots of shows changed intros. In syndication with Emergency, even the Season 1 episodes were shown with the later Intro, not the theme music one.

    CHiPs, TJ Hooker, Knight Rider, and even Airwolf had different themes in Season 1 than the rest.

    One of these days I'll go on Jeopardy with all of this useless information and make some dough.

    Speaking of that, anyone else notice in many episodes in S1 when they were supposed to be driving to the scene that it was the old big Dodge, not the new one? Like the Rescue that Johnny was in for the pilot? Riddle me this Batman...

    I'll take a stab.....

    The "smoke" from the ER appears to be steam which can be common place for a hospital especially in the cooler months.

    Research found that EMERGENCY was filmed during the early spring and fall to eliminate the hot southern california weather. Ever wonder why alot of the episodes they had the navy jackets on ?

    But the steam could be anything from incinerators to the heating systems used during the time....."Rampart Hospital" was and I believe a real hospital fictiously named for the show.....I think it was Los Angles County University Medical Center or something of that nature.

    Anyone notice that Johnny rarely ever drives the squad. This is because they filmed the trucks leaving the station (in different directions and such) before they filmed the actual episodes. Only Roy drove during that day of filming, so it stuck. I noticed only one call in one episode of season 1 where Johnny drove. For that call, they cut out the clear shot of who is driving when the squad is shown turning out of the station.

    It was actually UCLA Harbor General, Most of the station's used were actual station's in the pilot Station 10 in real life is Station 8 and acourse Station 127 is used as Station 51

    It was nice to read this thread. I grew up with Johnny and Roy as well... and like most "old fart paramedics"..the show influenced me alot on my decision to become a paramedic (even though "girls" couldn't be paramedics back then)... Believe it or not my dad still didn't want me to go to paramedic school in the early 80's because its not for "girls"... He changed his mind and is very supportive of my career now. Boy have things changed in the last 23 years since I first took my Paramedic. Also the show was still fairly realistic to the way we functioned in 1982 when I started paramedic school.

    Talking

    p.s someone asked about what happened to several of the cast members. I went to Washington D.C. a few years back when they were putting items from Emergency in the Smithsonian and got to meet some of the cast. The guy who played Chet Kelley was there... he was an actor and not actually a firefighter... The guy who drove the truck, Mike Stoker, retired from the LA County Fire Department... he had the job because the E-51 actually belonged to fire department and thereby an employee had to drive the truck... Capt Stanley is an actor (by the way he was not the original Capt. (The original captain-- who had blondish hair was a firefighter).. Also got to meet the actor who played the young black doctor as well... had a great time at the get meet and greet with the crew.

    same here. Season 1 and 2 are on my Amazon wish list.

    From Wikipedia: Universal Studios (the series' original distributor) has so far issued domestic DVD editions of the series' first two seasons. The North American DVD release date for season 1 was August 23, 2005. The North American DVD release date for season 2 was February 7, 2006. Season 3 (North America) is scheduled for release on February 13, 2007.

    Question to the good times!

    I LOVED Emergency! when I was a kid along with all the other Jack Webb series (Dragnet, Adam 12, Sierra etc.) my kids are 18 & 16 and they love em too.
    anybody remember one called "Firehouse"? they had a pumper with the open roof & it took place in a NY-ish type city. Always remembered every time they left on a call there was a guy who ran into the street flagging traffic.

    i bought both seaon 1 and 2 at best buy. the only problem is that on some of the episodes on the season 1 set, the shows will freeze up. however, my favorite scene in the whole show is from season 1, episode 1 when jonny is just a resuce guy and is stationed at his origional station, i believe station 10. the whole station he is at respondes to a warehouse fire. this is before he even becomes a paramedic. i also think its funny how it only took 12 weeks back then to become a paramedic. here in mississippi its 12 monthes.

    You mean Lingers Ractate? As I called it once in 1980 and have NOT been allowed to forget!
