• Highway Patrol TV show title shot

    21-50 to Headquarters: The classic cop show is back on the air. Here's how to watch it.

    Mention "Highway Patrol" to anyone who grew up watching TV in the 1950s or 1960s, and chances are the immediate response is "10-4". Starring academy award winner Broderick Crawford as Dan Mathews, the gruff, intense chief of a state police force, Highway Patrol was produced from 1955 to 1959, rerun endlessly in the 1960s and 1970s, and popular in 71 countries.

    The classic Highway Patrol image is fedora-topped Dan Mathews leaning against a black and white patrol car, holding a radio mic, barking "21-50 to headquarters!". The invariable response is "Headquarters by" (standing by). Radio code "10-4", sirens, and guns are sure to follow. Highway Patrol is fondly remembered because it is, well, unforgettable -- different, compelling, fascinating, and a TV pioneer.

    Highway Patrol is no longer just memories -- it is back on the air across the U.S.A. See the end of this article for details.

    A motor home or travel trailer can be outfitted to watch TV on the road.

    The primary RV activity is seeing the world. But every adventure needs some downtime. Sometimes, it's nice to kick back and see what's on television. Virtually every modern RV has one or more TVs. But the best way to receive live TV programming can be puzzling, because there are several options, and quite a bit of money can be spent only to be disappointed at the outcome.

    There are several factors to consider. Your best choice is where the factors intersect -- FOR YOU.

    Hollywood locations of NCIS, CSI, 24, The Mentalist, Star Trek, The Unit, and more... 

    Hollywood movies and TV shows are almost never filmed in the real Hollywood, a neighborhood of the City of Los Angeles. Some studios used to be there, but many years ago most production companies moved to other parts of the greater "LA" area. This is why tourists who go to the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Vine St. rarely see anything interesting. But I do, because I know where to look.
