No doubt Webb’s police drama dominated the airwaves in the earlier decade. The initial version of the show was designed for radio, first airing in 1949 and continuing for 318 weekly episodes until 1955. Not only did the two series run concurrently for three years; they were intimately connected, with the radio scripts providing most, if not all, of the material for subsequent televisual production and broadcast. Once Webb made the move to television, his decision to film episodes rather than broadcast them live ensured that Dragnet would, because of syndication, be a continuing presence for years afterward on the small screen.
In the first episode, “The Human Bomb” (aired December 16, 1951), Friday and his partner prove able, in the nick of time, to prevent a bomber from destroying City Hall, but this episode was a teaser whose adrenalinepumping plot was seldom to be repeated. Subsequent episodes, though they were all titled “The Big ——” (thus recalling notable films noirs such as The Big Clock [John Farrow, 1948]), seldom depended on either fast-paced action or a deadly threat of some kind to provide audience interest even when violent criminals were being sought.
