Code Red '80s Show with Adam Rich

ABC show, Code Red in 1981
As a little girl, I was a big fan of shows about cops and doctors. I'd often tune in to adult-focused shows like Quincy, CHiPs and Code Red, a show about a family of LA  firefighters staring Lorne Greene and foxy Andrew Stevens. I was only about 9 at the time, so my personal crush was on early '80s child actor Adam Rich (of Eight is Enough fame) who had a small role on the show. According to Wikipedia, only 19 original episodes aired on ABC between 1981-1982, however for whatever reason I still remember watching this show. Because of its short run, I doubt we'll ever see it in reruns.

Anyone remember this show, Code Red?

I have no memory of Code Red. I remember Adam Rich on Eight Is Enough, which I didn't watch regularly, but I think it was on for several years.

It's funny you mentioned 8 is Enough since I had this weird memory of it the other day... and was trying to name all 8 kids:
Mary, David, Joannie, Nancy, Tommy, Elizabeth, Nicholas. Who the hell is missing? (better Wikipedia it) Man, makes me wonder what useful brain knowledge is being pushed aside for this trivia!?

Janie, Eight is Enough was on for several season. It was much more successful than Code Red. LOL. Janki, was it Susan or Sue Ellen or something? I have to check?

I did not remember Code Red either. I do remember Adam Rich. He was such a cute long haired kid. LOL

Sam Jones!! Flash AHHH He'll save everyone of us.

I think Eight Is Enough had a Susan. Please get rid of word verification. It's so difficult for old people (like me).


Ally said...

I can't eliminate the word verification - last time I did that I was hit super hard by spammers.

8 is enough only had that many episodes. I remember that show very well. Could have swore I watched it tons of episodes.

Noooo Code Red didn't have as many episodes as Eight is Enough, which is why you never see Code Red in reruns!

I do remember it and I'm not surprised that it didn't last. I remember Eight is Enough also, but didn't watch it very much.
