Storyline

Nash is a smart-alecky police inspector (Don Johnson) who's seen fighting crime on the streets of San Francisco, while driving around in his screaming yellow 70ish Plymouth Hemi Barracuda. He's the typical super-cop on the beat, who always wins in the end. Unfortunately, his personal relationships leave much to be desired. He has two ex-wives, a 16-year-old daughter needing a lot of supervision, and a father with Alzheimer's disease who keeps getting kicked out of retirement homes and dropping by to visit.

Did You Know?

Trivia

The script that Hunter S. Thompson and Don Johnson wrote and pitched to NBC was much darker than the series ended up, and wasn't particularly suitable for prime time. In it, Nash was a drug addict who was dating the daughter of a wanted San Francisco mafia figure. See more »

Goofs

Although Nash Bridges' car is referred to as a 1971 Plymouth Barracuda (the grille/headlamp, mirrors, and tail light configuration is that of a 1971 Plymouth Barracuda.) The actual cars used were 5 Total, (4) 1970 Plymouth Barracudas and (1) 1973 Coupe (used as FX Car)converted to look like 1971 Hemi Cuda Convertibles. None actually had a Hemi motor, but rather 318-440 motors. 1 stick and 4 automatics. See more »

Quotes

[Joe notices a girl on a poster advertising sex on the side of a bus]
Joe Dominguez: Hey, the girl on that poster looks like your daughter.

What else can I say, THE BEST SHOW THAT THERE EVER WAS!
14 September 2004 | by (Porterville, CA) – See all my reviews

What else can it be. Don Johnson/Cheech Marin had what is by far the best chemistry on the show that makes it so watchable. One other note that I would like to say is that since I used to live in the Bay area during the duration of the series, I always wanted to be an extra on the series. I tried but never really made it through. The only thing that I would say is that since SF was a great place wher Nash and his Sexy '70-'71 Plymouth Baracuda (my favorite classic car!) made it's way onto TV I would really like to see this show go into DVD one of these days since this is by far one of the best crime dramas in history in simialar to The Price is Right of Cop Shows! The only thing I have to say is that since the show got canned back in May '01 I really wanted to see the ending in it's right of way but since the show was getting too expensive I thought six seasons is one hell of a run to begin with! Also the locations during the shows 6 seasons with the Routunda, (season 1 and some of season 2) the Hyde St. Pier (seasons 2-4) and the Embarcadero shelter (seasons 4-6) I would have to pick the Hyde St. Pier as the favorite SIU offices!

Rating 10/10 One of the best shows on TV next to NYPD Blue which is sadly leaving after this season (2004-05) 12th season ending shows!
