After a serial killer imitates the plots of his novels, successful mystery novelist Richard "Rick" Castle gets permission from the Mayor of New York City to tag along with an NYPD homicide investigation team for research purposes.
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. Written by

Don Johnson not only starred in the series, but co-created it and owned a percentage of it. When the show went into syndication, he did quite well financially. See more »
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 »

Can't we take a bigger car? Or a bus, perhaps?

The first 5 seasons were great with great cast members.
When Season 6 introduced Inspectors Antwon Babcock(Cress Williams) and Rachel McCabe(Wendy Moniz), the show tanked. There was no chemistry between Antwon & Harvey and Rachel didn't even belong in the series. There was a real friendship between Harvey & Evan; which, when lost caused the show to lose an exceptional link to viewers. Nash & Joe have the same chemistry that Harvey & Evan had. No one would even think of killing off Joe. Cassity becoming a member of the SFPD was the beginning of the end. Rachel's addition sealed it. I loved the show and certainly San Francisco was shown to the be beautiful city that it is. Nash's ability to solve crimes & know everything instantly was a little over the top, but the show could have remained one of the great ones had the supporting cast been allowed to shine. What made it great in the beginning was slowly killed off.
