This was theoretically Don Johnson’s splashy return to television after his hit series “Miami Vice”. Once again he is playing a law enforcement official – this time he is a police investigator, who is great at his job, but lousy in his personal life. Working in the elite Special Investigations Unit he gets the job done with his street smarts and disarms people with his humour. Not as good or edgy as “Miami Vice”, but a decent watch for fans of the Johnson or the genre.
Nash Bridges (played by Don Johnson) works for the Special Investigations Unit in the San Francisco Bay Area. He has an odd little partner in Joe Domingues (played by Cheech Marin). He is also kept busy looking after his teenage daughter (played by Jodi Lyn O’Keefe).
The series ran for six seasons so you get one hundred and twenty-two episodes. Should keep you busy for a while. Keep your eyes peeled for the array of well-known guest stars like Cynthia Nixon, Hunter S. Thompson, Willie Nelson, Penny Marshall, Lucy Liu, Tommy Chong, Ron Jeremy, Geraldo Rivera, Barry Bonds, and Philip Michael Thomas
