It began in January of 1967, and ran to September of 1970. The lead character, Sgt. Joe Friday, was played by Jack Webb, who also directed and produced the series. The show's focus is on two detectives, Sgt. Joe Friday, and Officer Bill Gannon, played by Harry Morgan. The two track down criminals all throughout the city of Los Angeles, California.
    The original "Dragnet" was the grandfather of ALL of today's police drama shows. This was the first time a cancelled network TV series was successfully revived.

    In late 1965, Universal and NBC hired Webb to revive "Dragnet" as a made-for-TV movie. This was filmed in early 1966, but didn't air until January 1969. Titled "World Premiere: Dragnet," the well-made film has Friday and Gannon linking the slayings of photographer's models to the disappearance of a war widow, while Gannon prepares to retire.

    The reboot of the LAPD procedural took itself so seriously it's now campy comedy. So dated because Jack Webb as the basset hound Sargent JoeThe reboot of the LAPD procedural took itself so seriously it's now campy comedy. So dated because Jack Webb as the basset hound Sargent Joe Friday tried oh so hard to be with it. Thirty minutes of a laugh your ass of journey to the late 60's. Certain Joe Friday tenets:
    A. Marajuana (reefer) leads to LSD, which makes you paint half your face blue, eat dirt, then do Heroin and then you're pushing up daisies.
    B. Hippies are evil police hating long hair buffoons who don't bathe.
    C. There's always room for a Sargent Joe Friday Just the Facts Come To Jesus lecture.
    D. Crazy eccentric loony tunes partner Joe Gannon played by Harry Morgan comes up with crazy schticks such as quail eggs in a fishing tackle lunch box.
    E. A dozen or so B thespians reprising different roles each episode. Bad teeth Virginia Greg as a loud mouth bunco pyramid scheme diva with a Southern accent.
    And the music was session musicians no one ever heard of.
    Camp at it's best that's oh so dated.
