In the CHiPs
Annie Van Auken | Planet Earth | 04/20/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The pilot episode of the hour-long drama series CHiPs premiered on the NBC-TV network on 9/15/77. Between then and 5/3/83 (six seasons), a total of 139 chapters aired, making this one of the most successful of TV cop shows.

Set in Los Angeles, it's the adventures of motorcycle officers Joe Baker (Larry Wilcox) and Francis Llewellyn 'Ponch' Poncherello (Erik Estrada). Amazingly, these guys hardly ever unholstered their sidearms, no matter what trouble arose.

Other regular cast members for seasons #1 and #2: Robert Pine as Sgt. Joseph Getraer, Paul Linke as Officer Arthur Grossman, Brodie Greer as Officer Barry Baricza and Lew Saunders as Officer Gene Fritz.

Numerous comic actor "walk-ons" give these 45 episodes a light touch in spots: Jackie Vernon, Phyllis Diller, Jim Backus, Shelley Berman, Tom Poston, Richard Deacon, Carl Ballantine, Rudy Vallee, Alice Ghostley, Danny Bonaduce, Alan Sues and Jack Carter. In addition are cameos from: Troy Donahue, Regis Philbin, Broderick Crawford, Edward James Olmos, Ned Glass, Guy Stockwell, Markie Post, Ken Kercheval, Mary Crosby, Tige Andrews and ex-footballers Rosey Grier and Ben Davidson. (Note: the lion's share of these guest spots occur in Season One.)

CHiPs: The Complete Seasons 1 & 2
David T. Brown | 05/26/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

""CHiPs" is one of the great tv shows of the 1970's! It not only has plenty of action and adventure, but also comedy, drama and good storylines. Larry Wilcox & Erik Estrada's tv characters compliment each other, making them a perfect team, which also makes the stories even better. With that, you can relate with the show. There are also plenty of other regular characters to enjoy on each episode with the likes of Sgt. Getraer and fellow officers Grossman, Baricza, Cindy, Bonnie, Fritz, etc. This makes for a "family-oriented" atmosphere and in turn creates a show the whole family can watch. Along with the plenty of car chases on the California freeways, there is lots of other locales to see: the CHP headquarters, the officers homes/apartments, area stores, discos, businesses and much more. Each episode not only focuses on the officers working lives, but also their personal lives. Add to this the background disco music, beautiful California scenery and an array of big & small name guest stars (and stars to be), this definitely makes CHiPs all the more interesting and a "potpourri" in the world of television. It brings back good memories from my teen years and will bring back good memories for you too."
Still a great show!!

"Some shows don't stand the test of time, but Chips is not one of them. I hadn't seen the show in years but its just as good as I remember it being when I was a kid. I got it for an excellent price and I couldn't resist. If you enjoyed Chips when it was on during the 70's, I would definitly recommend that you get it now!!"
