TV Shows - CHiPs

A light-weight action crime drama (that played as more of a comedy in some episodes, particularly in the first season) created by Rick Rosner, it starred Erik Estrada as macho, rambunctious Officer Francis ("Frank") "Ponch" Poncherello and Larry Wilcox as his straight-laced partner, Officer Jonathan "Jon" Baker. With Ponch the more trouble-prone of the pair, and Jon generally the more level-headed one trying to keep him out of trouble with the duo's gruff yet fatherly commanding officer Sergeant Joseph Getraer (Robert Pine), the two were Highway Patrolmen of the Central Los Angeles office of the California Highway Patrol (CHP, hence the name "CHiPs"). As real-life CHP motor officers rarely ride in pairs, in early episodes this was explained away by placing the trouble-prone Ponch on probationary status, with Jon assigned as his field training officer. Eventually, by the end of the first season, this subplot faded away (Ponch completed his probation) as audiences were used to seeing the two working as a team.

1 MeTV has been cycling through CHiPs for the last few months, and we've noticed that the early seasons were better than the later ones. The show was at its best when the guys were focusing on cop stuff and lagged when they got sidetracked by all the "extracurricular" activities. In other words, the "Disco Dancing" reason. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on March 29, 2015, 12:32 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Never actually saw an episode of this show, but I'd like to see an explanation for the promo where they arrest HR Pufnstuf. The snarky jokes do kinda write themselves. -- Submitted By: (Hateaol) on January 2, 2014, 7:51 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

10 Let's be honest, the only reason why people watched this show is because cable wasn't available to 95% of American homes in the late 70s. Enough cheese to make a group of mice sick. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on July 10, 2009, 5:57 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
