Himbo private investigators Cody Allen (Perry King) and Nick Ryder (Joe Penny) immediately become smitten with a blonde bombshell (June Chadwick) they meet at the supermarket and each make fools of themselves trying to pick her up before she gives them the brush off. To their surprise they discover she is police Lieutenant Joanna Parisi and they end up working with her on a case.
The case is a grisly spate of gun murders of young women. A distraught shoe salesman (Robin Strand) is convinced his room-mate is the killer. He has hired the Riptide Detective Agency to prove or disprove what he suspects. His attempts at being helpful only result in Cody, Nick and their book-smart but socially inept associate Murray 'Boz' Bozinski (Thom Bray) becoming more bewildered which could be fatally inconvenient for the next victim.
I welcomed the addition of gorgeous June Chadwick (I've had a crush since I was 10) to the cast of this show even though she replaced the scene-stealing Jack Ging who portrayed the hyper-macho, gleefully hostile nemesis Lieutenant Quinlan for 29 episodes. The show needed more of him, not less and certainly was not as good with him gone completely.
I always wondered why they couldn't have kept Quinlan and brought in Parisi as another cop or as trouble-making journalist, crusading public defender or some other role where she could be involved in their cases. Instead the show lost the kind of "angry dad/irresponsible sons" dynamic audiences could project on to Quinlan's relationship with the Riptide boys which was so much fun.
