Sunshine, Funk & Fun
on 18 January 2011
I used to love Chips as a kids - and I suspect you're here because you did too... so what's it like watching it 20 or so years on? Well, it's even better 2nd time around!
Chips takes you back to a day when TV was innocent. Each episode is a joy to watch and transports you to another time and place.
A place where the bad guys always get caught and the crimes and calamities are pretty mild. A place where the California sun always shines and you get to see long shots of cops bowling down rolling freeways on their motorbikes.
The duo work well together on screen - there's the diligent Baker and the clumsy and trouble-prone Puncharello - there's the Chief who's always on their case and all in all this is just a great, feel good TV series you can put on during the day and enjoy.
All the sun, moral messages, and feel good TV can't help but bring a smile to your face. Plus, to round things off, there's a funky-as-you-like-it-boom-chicka-wah-wah-jive-talking-street-walking-pimp-slapping-toe-tapping-booty-shaking-bad-muddy-funksta 70's soundtrack to each episode... seriously, I think they got Shaft to do the music... 'Shut yo mouth!' - Mm-Hmm - that's right!
If you have kids they're bound to love it, and if not - who cares - because you will!
