Nash (Don Johnson) is a smart-alecky police inspector, who's seen fighting crime on the streets of San Francisco, California, while driving around in his screaming yellow 1970ish Plymouth Hemi Barracuda. He's the typical super-cop on the beat, who always wins in the end. Unfortunately, his personal relationships leave much to be desired. He has two ex-wives, a sixteen-year-old daughter needing a lot of supervision, and a father with Alzheimer's disease who keeps getting kicked out of retirement homes and dropping by to visit.

Did You Know?


The script that Hunter S. Thompson and Don Johnson wrote and pitched to NBC was much darker than the series ended up, and wasn't particularly suitable for prime time. In it, Nash was a drug addict who was dating the daughter of a wanted San Francisco, California mafia figure. See more »


Nash Bridges 1971 Plymouth Barracuda "Hemicuda" was at the time and has been the most expensive production vehicle on the classic muscle car market. The vehicle was worth at least $450-700k in the 1990s and is now $2-3 million USD for the 15 known models.

Neither the San Francisco Police Department (nor any police department) would allow its employees to drive such an expensive vehicle for routine police work. See more »

Meet Nash
4 November 2017 | by videorama-759-859391See all my reviews

Whoever did the casting, pairing of these two leads, is a f..kin' genius. Happening to catch this show, one arvo at my Dad's, this is one cop show, which grew on me. Though it really isn't anything earth shattering, lacking in a kind of slight blandness, you like the show for the characters, mostly Cheech Marin, who's quit his comic days for seriously good acting. It's surprising how good he is he in this, as he will surprise you a bit. Don Johnson, plays a more reckless cop than his Miami Vice days, which he played a much more controlled character. Johnson, an underrated actor (Django Unchained, Machete are any indication) is very good here, and steers the show well, where you some other likable supports. In one episode, he actually had his MV co star in it. Nash is a SF cop (although you don't fee like your in Francisco most of the time) who does his things his way (sound familiar) to get better and more quicker results, and he likes it too. Cheech does still provide some comic relief, and a couple of his own devised lines. He's an asset to the show, it'd only be, half a show without him. Although the show, does have stereotypical traits and some ordinaryness (my word) to it, what you get is quite a good sufficient hour of cop drama, with some action, although it's a long way from the loud, cool glitzy style of Miami, but this one kind of retains a style of it of it's own.
