Overview

The weekly TV series Riptide was kicked off on January 3, 1984 with a 2-hour "movie premiere"--which is TV Guide talk for "pilot film." Cody Allen (Perry King) and Nick Ryder (Joe Penny) are hip, handsome Southern California detectives. Teaming up with their service buddy, computer geek Murray Bozinsky (Thom Bray), the boys set up their own agency, using a cabin cruiser as headquarters (shades of Surfside Six). In the pilot, the detectives tackle the mystery of a yacht hijacking, which an eyewitness insists was a case of sabotage and murder. Also appearing in this initial Riptide adventure are regulars-to-be Jack Ging as Lt. Quinlan, Anne Francis as charter-boat skipper Mama Jo, and Gianna Russo as restaurant owner Straightaway. Riptide ran from 1984 through 1986, after which Joe Penny and Perry King continued their Hollywood hunkdom, while Thom Bray became the voice of John Arbuckle on the cartoon series Garfield.

OK, first I gotta say I am biased because I used to go watch the filming of this show in Redondo Beach, CA. Having said that, this is a fun '80s PI show. Good chemistry with all three leading actors. Don't take it too seriously. Typical amusing Stephen J. Cannell stuff (A-Team, Rockford Files, etc.)- - and that's not a bad thing. Takes you back to a simpler time in TV w/out all the graphic violence.
