Mrs Downey
27 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Vintage '54,Mrs. Downey appears for the first time.She goes to the store to get more booze and her car is stolen. The next day, Ponch and Jon stop "Martians" driving an unusual car without plates. After the briefing, Mrs. Downey is looking for her '56 Caddy at Central. In her typical fashion, she gives Getraer orders. On patrol, Mary 3 and 4 find a dumpster that gets loose and rolls downhill. It refuses to pull over for them and eventually hits a station wagon.

At Central, she gets a ride home from Baricza. But Mrs. Downey has Baricza going in circles. When the call comes in for her car, Baricza drops her off and responds with Ponch and Jon in the lead. she arrives back at Central and takes her car. On her way out, she backs over Sarge's motorcycle.

This episode is the first appearance of Mrs Downey - another comedic character that CHiPs fans would surely enjoy when it used to be more of a comedy TV show in its first season.
