Retroist Riptide Podcast
Welcome to the newest supporter episode of the Retroist Podcast. This episode is all about the wonderful, but often over-looked sci-fi detective series, Riptide. It was a show with some serious talent behind it, and while it could be light and formulaic, it also tried out some new things you weren’t seeing on other shows.
I didn’t think much about its Science Fiction elements as a kid, but watching it now, you can see how future-forward it was. Giving the characters technology that doesn’t even exist today.
I start off the show talking about my love of robots. Then I move onto the show itself. I talk about the cast, the people behind the camera, the vehicles, the music, the Roboz, and much more. metagirl is back with a top 5 list. I hope you enjoy the show.

Newest Supporter episode.
I was surprised but happy to get to do this episode after Patreon Members chose it in voting.
Stephen J. Cannell Television Productions A History of All Series and Pilots is a great book to read if you like TV from this period.
I had some more cast info, but cut it out.
Removed some stuff about the vehicles.
I wanted to put more in about Roboz, but I really couldn’t find anything all that interesting besides what I put into it.
This show is so much fun to watch. Its 3 season and they go by very fast.
Thanks to metagrrrl for another great top 5 list.
Music on the show is, as always, by Peachy. Love that new track during the closing credits of the show.
