    Does anyone remember Rip tide?

    This show started in either 83 or 84. While it probably wouldn't be considered a classic by today's standards, I remember it and liked it. No what I'm talking about?

    Joe Penny and Perry King starred on Riptide. Even though it only ran for 2 and a half seasons, I sure hope it will get a DVD release someday. I used to really like that show

    I remember Riptide. Fairly standard action show for the day, with a nerdy character bringing the comic relief (I can't remember the nerd's name! ) I believe Joe Penny was in this before he did Jake & the Fat Man.

    Yes I remember Riptide! Perry King and Joe Penny were on it! Perry was later on Melrose Place. I think he played Brooke's dad.

    I remember the show well. Joe Penny went on to do Jake and the Fatman, another great show. I thought Riptide was pretty cool

    Yes I remember it. It was pretty standard and nothing special, but it did have some great characters. Didn't one of them live on a boat like Sonny Crockett in Miami Vice?

    I remember it...I remember loving the theme music, though I can't think of it right now.

    The music was awesome. I don't remember how it goes now though. It's been too long. The nerd's name was Murry. I kinda wish they'd bring it back, but it probably didn't have enough of a following.

    Re: Does anyone remember Rip tide?

    Sure this is an old topic,
    but picked up the season 1 DVD the other day.
    Been showing it to my wife and kids (who are too young to remember or have never watched it) and they really like it.
    It's much better than I remember at the time, but that robot is still annoying.

    I can't believe I missed this thread the first time through. I did watch the show back in the day, but I'd forgotten about it until I saw this thread and then found the intro on youtube:



    I remember thinking the bit where the nerd tries to back up the car but drives forward was hilarious. I was/am easily amused.

    I remember this show. They got around in the Screamin' Mimi. The nerdy guy always said, "This is really boss!" when he got excited about something. Ahh yeah. fun times!
