The community landscape is littered daily by juvenile delinquency, drug abuse, student dissidence, and con-artistry but, just like that, it can all be brought to a screeching halt when Friday and Gannon appear on the scene. Ladies and gentlemen, the stories you are about to see are true. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent. These are the best episodes of Dragnet 1968.

What a flashback...
This is fantastic! TV legends Jack Webb and Harry Morgan are superb in this series. Takes me back to my childhood. I love it!
The whole series Dragnet
I watched every episode so that I could say the lines before Friday and Gannon had them out. I wanted to be a police officer so bad I thought I was using them as a training base. I became a police officer, in spite of my immature attempts at training. (My current badge number is 714, only two notches away from Friday's 716, retired by LAPD.) Anyway, loved the shows, great to have them back. Part of our youth. It won't make us young again, but we'll enjoy them nonetheless.
Like the series but do not bother with season 2 as it will not download correctly
