First Part Is Interesting
1 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Drive Lady Drive Part I,Getraer assigns Ponch, Jon, Baricza, and Powell to assist other officers in Palma Vista Police Department. They arrive in Palma Vista to replace some striking police officers.

Baker heads the "A Watch" from 6:30am to 2pm. When Candi arrives in Paula Vista, she brings the girl to the police station where Ponch and Jon try to help. When Ponch and Jon say they can't watch after the girl and she'd be left in the police station, Candi takes her to the race track.

Later, her parents are in town to watch after the girl. The next day, some guys in a dune buggy speed by the police station. Ponch and Jon chase them but can't find them when they hide under a loading dock.

While in Palma Vista,Jon and Ponch help an orphaned 10 year old girl find a new home, arrest a councilman's two sons and city manager's daughter on some serious traffic charges, and break up a hijacking ring.

The first part of the episode provides a lot of events that involve women that make it interesting as we move on to the second part.
