Anybody Know Who These Guys Are?

Roy DeSoto and Johnny Gage
These guys were the main characters from my favorite show of all time, Emergency!. I watched the show with great devotion and even have pictures that I drew from no later than second grade based on the show. I watched it every Friday night and woe be unto any stupid basketball game that interrupted its normal scheduled broadcast. Me and my best friend Johnny Ward played this at recess every day.

When it went into syndication I watched it every afternoon - religiously. I lost track of it I think the year that we moved from Greensboro to Salisbury. Yet one more reason to mourn that year.

However, I just recently discovered that the whole series is available on DVD! SCORE! It would be a major score if I had actually acquired them! One day I shall... one day....

Jonathan,

I used to watch that all the time. It was my sister's favorite show and a major reason why she became a nurse :) It is on the retro cable chanel here at 4pm every day.

I have the Emergency board game at the house! Haven't played it in a few years. Dad bought it for the family in the 80s. Maybe we can play with Christopher next time you visit.
