Last week Dean Jones a great Disney actor who drove the Love Bug died today I am sad to say Martin Milner who drove Adam-12 has died. He was also in Route 66 which I never watched. I loved Adam-12 in syndication as a child in the 70s. I doubt if show would work today since it focused a lot on mundane cases plus Cops which used exact same premise but followed real cops.
Milner’s character which was a spinoff to Dragnet focused on cops on patrol. His character personified Jack Webb’s portrayal of cops as decent hardworking folk who took literally the idea of protect and serve. No actor personfied this better then Milner.
