"Riptide" is my all-time favorite detective show. So glad it's finally been released on DVD. This show (from the creators of such gems as "The Greatest American Hero", "The A-Team" & "The Rockford Files"), has the perfect blend of comedy & action. Thom Bray makes the show as the like-able Murray Bozinski. The show really hit it's stride in season two. June Chadwick as Lt. Parisi was a nice addition to season three. This show was highly under-rated, and should have lasted much longer. The only thing missing is extra features. It would have been nice to see interviews with the cast & creators of the show...and maybe some behind the scenes features, gags & bloopers. Still...I highly recomend this series to anyone who likes great classic TV shows. For the most part, it's fun for the whole family. They don't make shows like this anymore!

This show was beaten by Moonlighting(Bruce Willis,Cybill Shephard) in the ratings ,But there are great episodes in this 3 year show. One of the 3 investigators was the brain of the operation and had a robot computer,the other 2 were leading the charge to solve crimes by using a Hot corvette,a helicopter ,and a fast boat. set on the California coast in pier 56,you get a new crime to solve each week. See a trio of California crime fighters in a series backed up by great background music and a producer. This show was cancelled before its time. If it had to compete against the last year of Moonlighting,It would have won and stayed on TV.

It's a trip back in time to an era when a show about 3 detectives was simultaneously humorous and suspenseful, when an on-screen murder left you thinking "who done it" without the language and violence prevalent in today's TV shows. The chase scenes are as fun to watch now as they were nearly 30 years ago. And Riptide aired back in the day when you could actually read the credits (the list of guest stars is impressive) and enjoy the outtakes at the end, just as it was shown on TV, minus the commercials.

The 3 main characters, Cody Allen (actor, Perry King), Nick Ryder (actor, Joe Penny), and Murray Bozinsky (actor, Thom Bray) were with the show through its full 3-year run. It's easy to forget that's Perry, Joe and Tom as you are drawn into the world of P.I.'s Cody, Nick and Murray and the camaraderie the 3 shared. And for those who remember the troublesome Detective Quinlan (actor, Jack Ging)...watching the full 3-years of the series in a matter of a few months makes it obvious how much the Detective grew to respect and trust the 3 private eyes that always seemed to land in the middle of his cases. And it wouldn't be Riptide without the coughing, smoke-spewing pink Screaming Mimi carrying the gang into or out of trouble while the pilot, Nick, crossed himself in hopes she'd get airborne one more time.

This collection has top notch quality of picture, audio and even in the presentation of the package. It is easy to house, taking up little space at 1 3/4" thickness, 5 1/2" wide and 7 1/2" tall for the box containing 3 DVD holders - 1 for each season - with the multiple DVD's per season.

Buying "Riptide: The Complete Series" is money well spent, bringing many relaxing evenings. A quality show like this is timeless, with the only obvious dating being some of the clothing styles of the 1980's.

Great Quality for an old series but I noticed The original songs are missing once again Be True to Your School,Merry Christmas the wars over and Boz Busters. What was really stupid in the season 2 case they talk about the song Boz Busters and It's not on the DVD The song that replaced Boz Busters sounds way to modern for an 80s show. Why didn't they loop the riptide intro theme over instead putting a dumb song in.

I thought this was a decent collection of episodes for the entire series for what amazon was selling this item for and I felt it was fair price for this collection of the TV series on Standard DVD..
However I miss having the Closed Captioned English subtitles option which should be
Included with All Movie and TV Show released on standard DVD or Blu-Ray. If term Closed Captioned is a copy righted name , them just refer to them as English Subtitles and add this feature regardless.
To bad digital remastering can't be a standard feature for all Movies and TV shows
Released on Standard DVD format as well.
I have not had a chance to watch all the episodes yet, however I liked the episodes I have seen so far.
I would recommend this Entire series DVD
Box set to any Diehard Ripe Tide fan, you won't be disappointed.
It's nice to be able to revisit classic 1980's TV on DVD, these shows. Are much more fun to watch and do not include negative storylines in all their eposodes unlike
Today's cop shows do.
They just don't make them like they used to, the writing was clever and the dialog believable and sometime fun to listen to.

The Screaming Mimi rides again. Just like 21 Jumpstreet, they have removed the original music from the episodes. That sucks!!!! Thom Bray, Joe Penny, and Perry King were great together and this show was highly underrated. The late Stephen Cannell owned television in the 70's(Rockford) throughout the 80s and into the 90s w/Renegade. Riptide brings back so many memories. Tuesday nights on NBC used to rock w/this and the A-Team. Murray used to tickle me how he would throw a punch w/his thumb inside the fist instead of being out. I saw a pic of the three stars from '10 and Penny who was the youngest looked older than Perry and Thom.
