Friendship And A Look-Alike Crook
26 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At Central, Ponch is excited about delivering the baby but Getraer got a complaint against Jon.

Then the next day's briefing, Ponch and Jon tell everyone about the other's problems. When they "hit the bricks", Getraer pulls someone over who drives off as he gets to the door. Ponch and Jon chase the car until it jumps into a pond. Ponch and Jon jump in and arrest the guy as Getraer arrives.

Later, Ponch goes to pick up his motor home...but they need another day to work on the generator. That night, while Ponch and Jon watch a movie, the Jon look alike pulls over a woman and hits on her. When Ponch and Jon see her struggling, the fake officer tells them she was resisting arrest. A Santa Monica police officer comes along and everything gets sorted out. That night, Jon sleeps at a neighbor's house to avoid Ponch's noise.

The next day, Ponch and Jon find a car that was hit (lightly) by a train. The fake CHP is on the other side of the tracks and Ponch spots him from the train. They chase him until he flips off his motor and falls off.

In this episode,we get to examine how Ponch and Jon's friendship as they get at odd with each other.I think this sort of made up for the unrealistic Jon-look alike crook.
