    Chicago TV has now once again been given the chance to show 1 of history's most popular TV classics, Highway Patrol. I'm just wondering if anyone has either seen this show when it first ran on TV or you just recently discovered it. Thoughts?

    I remember watching it when I was a kid, and have recently seen some episode on the "this" cable network. It's amazing how much the world has changed since this show was first filmed. No cell phones, computers, or advanced forensics. If a policeman is away from his car, he's out of touch (no portable radios). It's also a hoot to see the prices on signs. An episode I saw recently showed a dry cleaner or laundry willing to clean shirts for $0.19.
