Okay some shows are recycled. At the time it was the 90’s there was cop show with realism into it like Hill street blues. But Nash Bridges feels like those 70’s cop shows and it is fine there but there is not too much realism into it. But that is fine it is entertaining as hell and fun to watch. I watch this one all 6 season of it and it was a nice ride. It is a bit predictable but who cares it was fun. Typical criminals getting caught like Chinese gang, mafia, thieves, etc ….followed by some cool action and the occasional gun fight. The thing is Nash drives this cool yellow ’71 Plymouth Barracuda.
