Mod Squad

By ModBot

One Black, One White, One Blonde...
They were three hipper-than-hip undercover cops with a touch of menace and plenty of attitude. They walked the walk and talked the talk--and an entire generation stepped into line. Julie, Linc and Pete--Peggy Lipton, Clarence Williams III and Michael Cole, respectively--changed the television landscape. Now, take a journey back to the turbulent '60s and relive the phenomenon known as The Mod Squad, a bold TV series that redefined fashion, from hairstyles to language. "Solid."

The "Mod Squad" of the title was a trio of fashion-forward juvenile delinquents: Pete had stolen a car, Linc had been arrested during a riot, and Julie was a runaway from San Francisco. All three were on probation when they met Captain Adam Greer, a tough but sympathetic cop. Greer proposed that they join forces to form a special "youth squad"óthey would go undercover in the thriving Southern Californian youth subculture and ensnare adult criminals who preyed on the kids. The three hipsters agreed, and The Mod Squad was born.

Although they did the work of police detectives, the Modders didn't do things in conventional police officer style: they didn't carry badges or carry guns, and they didn't "fink" on kids their own age. They also got to carry out their police work against colorful and exciting backdrops like go-go clubs, motorcycle rallies, and (of course) the beach. They spoke in the cool slang of the day, the most notable example being Linc's habit of saying "Solid" to show his approval of something cool.

The Mod Squad continues to make its influence felt today in many ways. It remains a favorite of syndication, is frequently mentioned in surveys of influential television shows, and has even inspired 1999 big-screen remake. The trio wasn't kidding when they called themselves The Mod Squad. They never went out of style, never became un-mod.

Too bad this show has never made it into syndication, I remember Linc, Susan I donít recall the white guys name but this show had me glued to the screen. Oh, if i could see just one episode of this show again, great street stories, kewl cars, and a lot of action. Great intro music. The latest movies donít even get close to the writers who wrote this show.
