The Mod Squad: Season One, Vol. One

You know the infamous Dragnet episode entitled “The LSD Story”? There are episodes of The Mod Squad that are alarmingly similar to it, only instead of two stodgy cops, there are three hip young kids on the case. The Mod Squad first hit TV screens in 1968, and it was an attempt to grab the youth audience while addressing issues that the youth culture was being exposed to, like recreational drug use, the peace and love hippie movement, and racial unrest. Indeed, as it appeared a year after “The LSD Story,” one wonders if it was something of an answer to Jack Webb’s square brand of policing.
