Ponch And Bobby On Beach
12 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In This Year's Riot,Ponch and Bobby hunt a drug dealer and mediate a dispute over a nude beach while on temporary duty.

Everyone's planning on taking the day off to go to the beach but Getraer makes Ponch and Bobby stay on duty. Luckily, Getraer gave them beach duty. The next day, Ponch and Bobby take Ponch's motor home to Ocean Island. Ponch is enjoying the ferry ride and Bobby wants to arrest everyone. Ponch takes the covers off their motors and it quiets down a bit.

Later,Ponch and Bobby have to cancel a swim to answer a disturbance call. While clearing the disturbance, charcoal spills on a car and it catches fire. The girls in it drive it into the water. Ponch tells Bobby to take his boots off before going in to save them. When a resident complains about nude people on his private beach, Bobby arrests two people from the beach.Then on patrol, Bobby spots the drug dealer. They chase him after he steals an ATC. Soon he abandons the ATC and jumps on a ferry. Ponch jumps his motor onto the ferry to arrest him.

The only thing refreshing about this episode is the fact that both Ponch and Bobby are on duty in the beach.Also,male viewers(like me) get some delight to see sexy ladies on the small screen.
