Oh my goodness!! I didn't even realize just how corny this show was back in the day. To think this lasted three seasons! I could barely sit through the first episode. The only good thing about this show, was that we got to see the gorgeous Perry King. Back from that.... This show can be just stored away for historical purposes.

NO ONE REMEMBERS THIS!!!!! When I was little, I liked this more than the A-Team, and that is high raise because the A-Team had Mr. T and I was living in the 80s at the right age to think Mr. T was the greatest thing since sliced bread.

But I liked Riptide more, and Dad agreed with me....which was More
