The series featured Cody Allen ( Perry King) and Nick Ryder ( Joe Penny), two former Army buddies who decided to open the Pier 56 Detective Agency (later known as the Riptide Detective Agency) in Los Angeles. However, realizing that computers and technology play a major role in many investigations, the guys recruited the help of Murray "Boz" Bozinsky ( Thom Bray), a brilliant but socially inept scientist and computer hacker whom the guys had met while serving in the military. Riptide was created by Frank Lupo and Stephen J. Cannell, and produced by Stephen J. Cannell Productions. The main theme was composed by Mike Post and Pete Carpenter.
The team operated out of Cody's boat, the Riptide, moored at Pier 56 at King Harbor Marina. [1 ] The guys had several other tools in their fight against crime and injustice. These included Murray's robot, The Roboz, which, unlike most television robots, did not talk; Nick's aging Sikorsky S-58T helicopter, The Screaming Mimi, [2 ] which Nick occasionally used for his sideline business, aerial harbor tours; and Cody's speedboat, the Ebb Tide. Nick also had a classic red Chevrolet Corvette and in early episodes; Cody had a "Woody" station wagon.
Lt. Quinlan was a local police officer who continually harassed Nick, Cody, and Murray. Lt. Parisi, the guys' police contact during the final episodes, proved much more cooperative. During the first few episodes, Mama Jo was the crusty skipper of the Barefoot Contessa, a tourist boat crewed by an all-female crew. Introduced later in the first season was Max, a comedienne at the local club. Second season episodes also featured Dooley, a dock boy who occasionally assisted the team in their escapades.
The show's penultimate episode, "If You Can't Beat 'Em, Join 'Em", showed Allen and Ryder acting as consultants to a television series that closely resembled and parodied Moonlighting , Riptide's former prime time competition on Tuesday nights. [3 ]
