TV Shows - Riptide

The series featured Cody Allen (Perry King) and Nick Ryder (Joe Penny), two former Army buddies who decided to open the Pier 56 Detective Agency (later known as the Riptide Detective Agency) in Los Angeles. However, realizing that computers and technology play a major role in many investigations, the guys recruited the help of Murray "Boz" Bozinsky (Thom Bray), a brilliant but socially inept scientist and computer hacker whom the guys had met while serving in the military. Riptide was created by Frank Lupo and Stephen J. Cannell, and produced by Stephen J. Cannell Productions. The main theme was composed by Mike Post and Pete Carpenter. The team operated out of Cody's boat, the Riptide, moored at Pier 56 at King Harbor Marina.The guys had several other tools in their fight against crime and injustice. These included Murray's robot, The Roboz, which, unlike most television robots, did not talk; Nick's aging Sikorsky S58T helicopter, The Screaming Mimi, which Nick occasionally used for his sideline business, aerial harbor tours; and Cody's speedboat, the Ebb Tide. Nick also had a classic red Chevrolet Corvette and in early episodes; Cody had a "Woody" station wagon.

2 Good stuff! Was always aggravated because the opening credits of this show resembled Magnum, P.I., but watched it once, someone had kidnapped the hacker guy and some chick and he did all kinds of cool stuff like trace the imprint of a key with his computer,,,,then I was aggravated when it went off the air! -- Submitted By: (Arkady) on September 2, 2012, 4:15 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
