Yeah, it's on DVD. I bought the first season at a local flea market a few years ago. The first season is available cheap. The other two are more expensive, as is the complete series box set.

Perry King, Joe Penny and Thom Bray are private detectives. The show's unique points were that it often took place on the water or the air, as the lead characters owned boats and a junky old helicopter. Bray's character was also a mechanical genius, and he had his own robot, as seen in the intro.

I don't think it was three full seasons. More like two and a half seasons. If you like action shows from the 80s, you'll enjoy Riptide. It was pretty "light" in tone. Not as violent or gritty as HunterMiami Vice or WiseGuy, crime dramas that came along later in the decade.

OK. Thanks. I'll check out the first season, at the very least a lot of eye candy. I'm not expecting Emmy material....

Love the 80s. Some of these guys had better hair than the women did.

"After Dark" had a glorious first run - and then ceased publication.

It was primarily targeted to young gay men.

Later, it came back - but its' glory days were gone - and eventually it disappeared.

I never realized it came back. I remember it well back in the 70s/80s. Artsy/photography type magazine with interviews...

A few years later.  But, alas, not for long.

1981-1983?

Maybe talk about his films a bit more...has anyone seen THE POSSESSION OF JOEL DELANEY? I haven't and am curious about it. Seems to be another one of those Paramount films TCM never airs.

Yes, I would like to see that. So many Paramount films never get aired. (from the studio era or after) :( I hope the funds for Backlot members arent just going to the new hosts salaries....
