Counterfeit Scam And Romance
1 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Counterfeit,a bogus clergyman prints counterfeit money that circulates to Ponch.

Ponch finds out about a counterfeiting scam run by a bogus preacher when he gets hold of some fake money. Both Jon and Ponch try to solve the mystery to stop this counterfeiting scam.In addition to that,Ponch's blind date appears to be shallow but she happens to be more than expected.

Andrew Duggan guest stars as the hypocrite pastor who runs the counterfeit money ring.Also,Billy Barty,who plays the midget named James O' Hara that helped Jon and Ponch to stop this counterfeit scam;and Fred Beir make guest appearances on this episode.

Enjoy this combination of both mystery and romance in this episode of CHiPs.
