Manages To Be Good Inspite Of Its Flaws
25 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Highway Robbery,a motorcycle rider steals a watch, wallet, and purse during a traffic jam. Jon and Ponch chase him and manage to corner him so he can be arrested. It turns out that Jon knows the kid from somewhere. While he tries to remember the kid, Ponch is drooling over a suntan lotion model.

Soon, our heroes encounter a traffic jam caused by circus truck. The circus elephant gets loose and the trainer has her perform for exercise. Ponch comes up with an idea to have the elephant tow the truck. After the elephant sits on Baricza's cruiser, Ponch and Jon chase a speeder from Texas with a $500 radar detector and tin foil to fight against radar. Jon gives him a ticket and tells him the CHP doesn't use radar. After Jon talks with his former teammate, Ponch and Jon help an old woman change a tire. As soon as they finish, the spare goes flat.

After visiting Central, they chase a car with a smoke bomb on it. After it crashes, they manage to get the people out of the trunk. Just as help arrives, Jon's biker friend steals a purse and they chase him until he drives onto the beach and gets knocked off his bike by a volleyball net.

A lot of things happen in this episode that one may feel that the script is written all over the place that one may not realize what the show really features about.Nevertheless,it was still manage to provide a good show despite of it.
