Storyline

The penultimate episode of Riptide is a great send up of the ABC series Moonlighting. The Riptide guys get hired by a TV producer to "train" the two stars of his new series. The two stars follow the guys around on a case to get a little on-the-job training. H. Richard Greene turns in a great performance as Cary Russell doing his best David Addison (Bruce Willis) the whole way.
