Kara and I love Dragnet... particularly the late-60s color version of the show with Jack Webb and Harry Morgan. And one of our favorite anecdotes describes how the LAPD came up with a set story to tell viewers who visited their offices asking for Sergeant Joe Friday, believing that he was a real-life cop. "Sorry," they'd say, "it's Joe's day off."

Today's Brain Game gives everyone an opportunity to answer, so feel free to chime in!
