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.

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

Nash Bridges 1971 Plymouth Barracuda "Hemicuda" was at the time and has been the most expensive production vehicle on the classic muscle car market. The vehicle was worth at least $450-700k in the 1990s and is now $2-3 million USD for the 15 known models.

The San Francisco Police Department (nor any police department) would allow its employees to drive such an expensive vehicle for routine police work. See more »

Wish the reruns were on in the evening
23 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Characters are great and for the most part characters and acting are very believable. It's great the way the side story lines with the various characters thread from show to show. Very creative, and a lot of fun to watch. I often am late to work just so I can watch both morning reruns. I'd love to be able to watch it late at night (like 10 and 11 PM). I'm a fan of Law and Order: CI (the original with Vincent D'Onofrio and Kathryn Erbe), so I wouldn't want that show shoved aside for Nash Bridges.

BTW, I'm also a huge Monk fan -- another San Francisco detective. Funny, huh?
