Themes Like Old Times

Frankly, I don't remember seeing 'Riptide' at all, but it's from Stephen J. Cannell with a Mike Post theme, so undoubtedly someone remembers it fondly!

  1. I used to watch it... forgot about the robot though.

    1. There's at least one spot in the opening (along with the helicopter and red sports car) that seems almost like an homage to Magnum, P.I., but, for as much TV as I watched, and as many Stephen Cannell shows I enjoyed, this one draws a blank with me.

      The robot and the Rick Moranis type character looked like they were there for comic relief.

    2. Yeah, I'm sure they were. I also remember them driving around in a GMC Jimmy with the top off more that I remember the Vette.

    3. I Googled it. It ran between 1984 and 1986. Magnum ran 1980-88. Can't remember those years all that well, I guess!

  2. I never missed a show. I was thinking it ran under a different name, but I was wrong.

    1. Maybe you were thinking of my stage name, "Ripped Hide"?
