Ponch Gets A New Partner

7/10
Author: Desertman84 from United States
15 August 2013

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

In Fast Company, Ponch gets newly qualified partner in Officer Bruce Nelson.They both head south looking for a guy involved in auto theft. They spot a couple of murder witnesses, but the local sheriff wants them too. He impounds Ponch and Bruce's bikes and attacks them all with tear gas.The next day, Ponch and Bruce find out their suspect died a few days ago. While getting ready to leave, they notice the "Zodiac Twins", witnesses to a drug-related murder. While in the diner/general store, the local sheriff claims he has a warrant for the twins. When he doesn't get them, he impounds Ponch and Bruce's motors.

When Bobby and Kathy find nothing in Juniper, they head for Lone Canyon. Meanwhile, Sheriff Bolt shoots tear gas into the general store. Ponch and Bruce escape in an old truck. They free the CHP motors while Ponch leads the sheriff away. Ponch gets on Bruce's motor while a Jeep rams the truck and then it explodes.

Bruce and Ponch head back to pick up the twins and leave Lone Canyon. Then a plane starts buzzing them. When Ponch and Bruce drive under some telephone wires, the plane's engine stops and crash lands. Ponch arrests Sheriff Bolt, who was piloting the plane.In the end,The Zodiac Twins - Jeannie and Jan - agree to testify.

With Bruce now the new partner of Ponch,we now know that CHiPs is in its final run.Considering that Tom Reilly wasn't able to provide new excitement to the TV show as it is unable to generate new interest among the viewers,now a new actor Bruce Penhall has to fill in the big shoes that Larry Wilcox left on the show.Too bad that both Reilly and Penhall aren't able to do so.This only proved the producers wrong that Estrada is the main reason for the show's popularity and it once again proves that Wilcox AND Estrada is the primary reason of CHiPs' success.
