Anyway, this show & this season 2 collection is still just simple, enjoyable fun. It's great. The basis of the show is 3 guys who can't afford groceries but somehow manage to maintain a HELICOPTER, A Classic 1958[?] Corvette, a top-notch Speedboat (ooo-The Ebbtide!) & an actual YACHT that they live on! And each case only generates a couple hundred bucks if they don't decide to do it pro-bono as a favor to a friend. That's the 80's and that explains a lot about all of us from the 80's. Not to mention the fact that 3 guys living on a yacht could explain years of damage to my Psyche.
In Season 2 though especially were some EXCELLENT episodes that you can watch over n over! "Beat The Box" is great...Murray the computer NERD invents a box that tells on you when you lie. What better basis for a show of three guy detectives. After all, guys never lie. I've seen some reviews here mention the change and/or loss of music in the episode "Be true to your school" but that's because these are CANADIAN released DVD sets. Canada has never heard the Beach Boys or the Beatles so that's why the music is different! Just kidding Canada, I really like you guys. Canada more than likely had a different audience than the U.S. for this show in the 80's.Read more ›
When Cody is consoling Nick about his buddies being drug dealers the original had Yesterday playing in the background. It was so corny you had to love it. In this factory release there is total silence. What a let-down.
But the most shocking was that nowhere in the episode did they use the title song "Be True to Your School", whereas in the original it was used twice.....just before the drug runner's boat blew up on the water, and most importantly at the end where Nick re-visits the football stadium.
I for one am keeping my old recording handy just so I never forget how it is really supposed to be.

This 1984-1985 Season of RIPTIDE takes me back to memory lane to when I was 12 years old in the 6th grade when NBC showed it every Tuesday night at 9PM after THE A-TEAM at 8PM and before REMINGTON STEELE at 10PM when NBC's motto was "Let's All Be There"!
