Favorite TV Shows: Riptide (1984-1986)

Calling this one of my favorite tv shows might be stretching it a little, but I do recall enjoying this show. The two good looking guys were pretty cool, and hey, this show was WAY ahead of the curve by celebrating and making fun of the geek in it/geek culture. I really don’t remember too much about it other than it was stylish (but not as much as Miami Vice) and it reminded me of Magnum, P.I., at least in location and a bit in tone (not surprising since some of the same people who worked on Magnum worked on this show).
