Soldiers And Rascoe
9 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the episode entitled The Game Of War,Jon and Ponch deal two teams are playing some sort of army game and firing colored water balloons at each other.Both teams are made up of soldiers. It gets out of hand and they leave the field and take it to the streets. They end up causing a major accident and drive off. That night, a former military guy demonstrates his jet pack on the roof of an L.A. building.The next day, Jon and Ponch go to the local military store when they hear about their game. They deny using colored water balloons and tank insignia.

Later, the military rocketeer's van is pulled over by Bonnie for speeding. While he jets out the top, his driver speeds off in the van. When attempting to serve Ron Bates with a summons, Darla is caught listening to plans to free Rascoe. As the prisoner transfer is in progress, the military guys create a smoke screen around Turner's cruiser and take Rascoe.Then,Jon and Ponch notice smoke coming from a van and find the Darla inside. While being chased, Rascoe escapes the van in a jet pack and lands in the head military guy's car. Ponch and Jon show up to arrest them both.

This is one of the better episodes of CHiPs as we deal with abusive military men and an escaped prisoner.
