Old school hottie

We're watching American Idol. Randy Travis is the special guest tonight, and I commented to Marc that he reminds me a little of an older version of Kent McCord. Of course, as compared to the TV star I remember from my childhood, Kent McCord is himself an older version of Kent McCord, so he doesn't need Randy Travis' help! :)

So how many of you remember Adam-12? Are any of you old enough to remember the thrilling police show with Mr. McCord and Martin Milner? Considering the years it was on, I must have been watching it mostly in reruns, but no matter. My young heart would race with excitement when that show came on! 1-Adam-12, 1-Adam-12, a 2-11 in progress. 1-Adam-12, handle code 3. *cue music*

"Code 3" was the best, because it meant they would turn on the lights and siren! Woo hoo!

Okay, so back to the original point of this post (although I must say I enjoyed that little trip down memory lane). There was one other thing that may have attracted the young Jess to the show...

Now, if I could find a shot of him from his guest appearance on World War II show, Baa Baa Black Sheep. Wow, he looked good in that! I mean, not that I would have noticed, since I was only 10 when that came out! ;)

I remember both shows. Although for some reason, I thought Randy Mantooth from Emergency was cute. Dumb, but cute.
