The sophomore outing of the three partners in the Riptide Detective Agency—handsome seafarer Cody Allen (Perry King), streetwise chopper pilot Nick Ryder (Joe Penny), and computer expert Murray Bozinsky (Thom Bray)—is notable not only for plenty of action and pretty girls, but for several segments in which light is cast on the trio's backgrounds. We discover that Cody is quite at his ease in a preppy environment, and meet his former roommate from before the agency's founding; encounter the high-school football team—inexplicably successful in its adulthood—on which Nick played; and find out how Nick and Cody first met Murray. Cesar Romero appears as the patriarch of a family of Italian oceanographers, and Ken Olandt joins the cast in a semi-regular role as dockboy and wannabe detective Kirk Dooley. Cases are often quirky, action high-octane, and the three leads sympathetic. Although a relatively minor example of '80's TV detective shows, this one is still worth your time.

I watched this show loyally when I was a toddler. Ok, I was roughly 13 years old. But given the fact that the radio was playing Flock Of Seagulls, Culture Club & The Human League non-stop...this show gave me hope that I could seclude myself on a boat someday with no radio. Of course, the yacht filled with a dozen lovely ladies next door certainly didn't hurt my adolescent dream.

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.

I like the first season, but the second was better because the characters became more real. The two jocks weren't so shallow and their character started to have feelings. Just more likable and real.

Is anyone else a little disappointed in some of the episodes? My main complaint is about "BE TRUE TO YOUR SCHOOL". In the original TV episode there were some great songs used at the high school reunion (Wild Thing, Day Tripper). This recording has some lame ballad playing.
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.

RIPTIDE's 1984-85 Season, as originally broadcast on NBC. Operating out of Pier 56, former army MPs Cody Allen (Perry King) and Nick Ryder (Joe Penny) are joined by computer genius Murry "Boz" Bozinsky (Thom Bray) for 22 more episodes of crime fighting on land, sea and in the air in sunny Southern California.

RIPTIDE's sophomore season sees Kirk "The Dool" Dooley (Ken Olandt) join the cast as the variety of cases involving beauty contestants, eccentric billionaires, famous oceanograhers, game shows, a famous silver screen star and much, much more.

Features guest appearances by George Clooney, Dennis Haysbert (The Unit, 24), Kurtwood Smith (That '70s Show), Dana Elcar (MacGyver), Cesar Romero, William Russ (Boy Meets World, Wiseguy), Paul Gleason, James Cromwell (Six Feet Under, 24), Ray Wise (Twin Peaks), NFL star Lyle Alzado, and game show hosts Gene Rayburn and Bob Eubanks. 2007.

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"!

...and was so much fun to watch these guys whom I had the pleasure of glimpsing in a NYC Thanksgiving Day Parade in the '80s. Also, gotta love the always brilliant Stephen J. Cannell. Thanks for supplying this series!!!
