4.0 out of 5 stars Riptide -- Season Two Oct. 30 2007
Ah, yeah -- the Boys of Riptide, back on dvd for Season Two. Anyone remotely familiar with this show knows it's full of great actors, babes in bikinis, fast cars, fast boats and one pink helicopter with a humongous gaping mouth.

Diehard fans, like me, remember it as one of THE best 'buddy' shows. EVER. So when I found out season two was available to pre-order, you bet I pre-ordered it. Even splurged for priority shipping. Amazon.ca? You guys ROCK! Released today, received it today.

Many fans of the show will probably be very disappointed because the music isn't what we remember. It's changed. No "Be True to Your School" on 'Be True to Your School'. No "Do wah diddy, diddy dum diddy do" on 'Catch of the Day'. No "Hey, Jude" on 'Prisoner of War'. Bummer? Absolutely. Some songs were strategically placed in the episodes and they're very, very missed. That's why I didn't give it 5 stars.

This diehard fan is disappointed, but having season two on dvd in crystal clarity and crisp sound more than make up for it. This fan is thrilled Season Two is out. This fan hopes like heck the third and final season will follow shortly from VEI.

Thank you, VEI and Amazon.ca for 'Riptide' on dvd!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Riptide Season 2 Nov. 7 2007
Riptide was and will always be my favorite all time TV series. I am also a diehard fan here. I already have season one. I feel like a teenager again. As mentioned in other reviews no original music. One of my favorite episodes is "Be True To Your School", without the original music "Be True To Your School" I found myself rather disappointed, that is why I can only give it 4 out of 5. On a brighter note though, picture and sound is fantastic. Just to have this series on DVD is a treat. Well done once again VEI and thank you for bringing this brilliant series on DVD. Two down and One to go, BRING ON SEASON 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd season show hit their stride... June 10 2008
By Kathryn Schirm - Published on Amazon.com
...and was so much fun to watch these guys whom I had the pleasure of glimpsing in a NYC Thanksgiving Day Parade in the '80s. Also, gotta love the always brilliant Stephen J. Cannell. Thanks for supplying this series!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Who didn't want to live on a boat, drive a '50's vette & fly a helicopter in the '80's??? Feb. 24 2008
By Mike W - Published on Amazon.com

I watched this show loyally when I was a toddler. Ok, I was roughly 13 years old. But given the fact that the radio was playing Flock Of Seagulls, Culture Club & The Human League non-stop...this show gave me hope that I could seclude myself on a boat someday with no radio. Of course, the yacht filled with a dozen lovely ladies next door certainly didn't hurt my adolescent dream.

Anyway, this show & this season 2 collection is still just simple, enjoyable fun. It's great. The basis of the show is 3 guys who can't afford groceries but somehow manage to maintain a HELICOPTER, A Classic 1958[?] Corvette, a top-notch Speedboat (ooo-The Ebbtide!) & an actual YACHT that they live on! And each case only generates a couple hundred bucks if they don't decide to do it pro-bono as a favor to a friend. That's the 80's and that explains a lot about all of us from the 80's. Not to mention the fact that 3 guys living on a yacht could explain years of damage to my Psyche.

In Season 2 though especially were some EXCELLENT episodes that you can watch over n over! "Beat The Box" is great...Murray the computer NERD invents a box that tells on you when you lie. What better basis for a show of three guy detectives. After all, guys never lie. I've seen some reviews here mention the change and/or loss of music in the episode "Be true to your school" but that's because these are CANADIAN released DVD sets. Canada has never heard the Beach Boys or the Beatles so that's why the music is different! Just kidding Canada, I really like you guys. Canada more than likely had a different audience than the U.S. for this show in the 80's.

All in all & kidding aside, every episode from this season is actually fantastic but several stand out above the rest by far such as: "Arrivederci, Baby" featuring Cesar Romero. AWESOME! "Prisoner Of War" shows that Nick actually does date and it's a woman and she goes mental & turns to prostitution but Nick is still nice enough to go find her & save her...and then stick her in a mental hospital. Nice guy. I knew I wanted to be just like him. Then there's "Baxter And Boz" which features the guy who used to play The dad on the ADDAMS FAMILY!!! Can it get any better than this?? And in this episode Mr. Addams (Bax) is this ginormous quazillionnaire who gives away state-of-the-art helicopters and who gets one? You guessed it---our boys. I won't mention that they crash it in 18 seconds. It's OK though...they get another one. It's a cool episode with cheesy cars from the 80's. Finally, there is quite possibly the BEST EPISODE EVER...[drum roll]......"CURSE OF THE MARY ABERDEEN"!!!!!!! Totally awesome, Rad, [insert other 80's catch phrase here] episode! This episode kicks! Scary...eerily strange episode that leads to the guys finding out their yacht is a haunted boat...that holds the secret to a hidden treasure! Of course they are assisted by their client...the mysterious magician &...DOOLY!!! Yup, Season 2 shows the appearance of the local hip-kid named "Ken Dooly" played by Ken Olandt. Don't ask me why I remember his name. It's just strange. And a bit frightening. In the end the treasure is Harry Houdini's secret diaries (also pretty cool). This set is worth it for this episode alone.

Definately one of the better 80's TV shows. Al 3 seasons are excellent & the quality of the DVD's are very good. Enjoy Riptide Season 2!

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost, but not quite the original Jan. 6 2008
By T. Luedeke - Published on Amazon.com

Is anyone else a little disappointed in some of the episodes? My main complaint is about "BE TRUE TO YOUR SCHOOL". In the original TV episode there were some great songs used at the high school reunion (Wild Thing, Day Tripper). This recording has some lame ballad playing.
When Cody is consoling Nick about his buddies being drug dealers the original had Yesterday playing in the background. It was so corny you had to love it. In this factory release there is total silence. What a let-down.
But the most shocking was that nowhere in the episode did they use the title song "Be True to Your School", whereas in the original it was used twice.....just before the drug runner's boat blew up on the water, and most importantly at the end where Nick re-visits the football stadium.
I for one am keeping my old recording handy just so I never forget how it is really supposed to be.

I like the first season, but the second was better because the characters became more real. The two jocks weren't so shallow and their character started to have feelings. Just more likable and real.
4.0 out of 5 stars The "backstory" season March 25 2014
By Chrijeff - Published on Amazon.com

The sophomore outing of the three partners in the Riptide Detective Agency—handsome seafarer Cody Allen (Perry King), streetwise chopper pilot Nick Ryder (Joe Penny), and computer expert Murray Bozinsky (Thom Bray)—is notable not only for plenty of action and pretty girls, but for several segments in which light is cast on the trio's backgrounds. We discover that Cody is quite at his ease in a preppy environment, and meet his former roommate from before the agency's founding; encounter the high-school football team—inexplicably successful in its adulthood—on which Nick played; and find out how Nick and Cody first met Murray. Cesar Romero appears as the patriarch of a family of Italian oceanographers, and Ken Olandt joins the cast in a semi-regular role as dockboy and wannabe detective Kirk Dooley. Cases are often quirky, action high-octane, and the three leads sympathetic. Although a relatively minor example of '80's TV detective shows, this one is still worth your time.
