[Ponch, Jon, Bear, and Bonnie are having lunch at Toni & Sharon's place]
Sharon: [explains about Kelp] Actually, all kelp or seaweed is one of seven forms of algae. Right now, I'm working with the Fale Fita and the giant Macrocystis. I'm trying to breed in some of the better qualities of Irish Red. It's a lot richer.
Officer Bonnie Clark: Didn't they used to use kelp to for making soap?
Sharon: Right, for the alkali. But now there are cheaper sources.

Susanne Severeid
25 April 2016 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

Now here's a mystery. Perhaps you might help me solve it. Let's wade through the evidence. (1) I'm into pretty models (2) remembered Susanne Severeid (hell, we are talking donkey years ago) (3) and she was in a CH-Ps episode, I happened to see it by chance and was electrified to see her name in the credits, but I wasn't VHS-recording it so missed out AND WOW DID ONE OF MY FAVORITE PRINT MODELS LOOK CUTE RIDING THAT BIG MOTORCYCLE* and I spent the next day posting up notices at a primary school that I am looking for somebody who might have recorded it SO PLEASE DON'T ERASE IT, I'LL REWARD YOU! Ended up actually finding a kid who had it, but his Dad's golden memory rugby match was on the tape as well, so I couldn't buy the tape, had to have it re-recorded, with dismal results.

But okay, to get back on track with Tonight's Mystery. (4) I research this episode tonight, I do not remember the title of the episode, but I of course simply make a dash for Susanne Severeid, Googling her, and she is listed on IMDb, but (5) when scrolling down her credits, and seeing CH-Ps "Sharks" this sounds wrong. Hell, I only looked at the girl on the motorcycle, I suppose, but scuba-diving I remember naught-all about, so I WONDER... Is this it? There is only one episode of CHiPs featuring Susanne Severeid, so this has got to be it. But the storyline given is way off the subject I'm thinking about.

Could somebody please enlighten me? (I cannot currently place this as a Board Post, my phone gave trouble, and this spare isn't JavaScript enabled. I can be e-mailed at RavenGlamDVDCollector@gmail.com and I welcome any comments.

*Susanne appeared in seaside glamor shots showing off her glorious curves. Here in this episode, if this is the correct one, she wears a smart CHP uniform, riding that big bike round and round. The time it appeared on South African screens were in the late Eighties, so I remember very little. Just a flash of Susanne, that Ponch guy much taken with her.
