Trivia

Even though this was not the season finale, many fans considered this the last of the true CHiPs episodes, as the following episode focused on police dogs and deputy sheriffs. The finale was another back-door pilot, and this is the last time Baker and Poncherello were seen working normal traffic duties together. See more »

Goofs

After the computer error is discovered showing Harlan has 10 moving violations, he says if someone runs a check on it he'll go to jail. The character confused moving violations with a license suspension. So long as his license is valid, he could have a high number of moving violations and not be subject to arrest. See more »

Quotes

Officer Arthur Grossman: [while talking to Deena and trying to impress her] I've been reading an interesting book, maybe you've heard of it: "The Application of COBOL BIOS to Sequential Logic and Symbolic Instruction Codes." It says success with computers depends entirely on syntax.

Hackers
10 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In "Overload", two guys steal a valuable box of computer chips after one hides in the back of a truck overnight. Soon after, they are involved in an accident, and an old lady sees the guy in the back.

Jon and Ponch's as well as the CHP's investigation is made harder because the brother of one of the robbers has hacked the CHP computer that has affected their database.This also resulted into paycheck problems for the employees of CHP.

This is a good episode in the sense that we see how hackers have made an impact to the computers used by the CHP.Despite that the fact the the computers and equipment used are dated compared to present times,the problems created by hackers remain relevant at present times.Also,we see how Jon and Ponch deal with it.
