CHiPs

Recommended Posts

My daughter and I are binge watching Scrubs right now, and low and behold, Erik Estrada graces my TV with his presence ... and I freaked!  I was like, DANG, and my daughter was like, WHAT?  I was like, that is PONCH, and she is like, WHO???  And I had to resist smacking her.  ::giggle::

 

 

I was, OMG, he still looks GOOD (sure this was in what, like 2004 or 2005?  But still.  Dang).

When I was 9 and discovered Chips, I LOVED Erik Estrada.  He was my first prepubescent crush.  Looking back I realize Larry Wilcox was the hot one.  It was a total case of what was I thinking.

I follow his FB page. Don't care for the lady that runs it but love seeing the old pics and hearing some of the stories from filming. Agree that Larry still has the boyish charm. ;)

Love the clips of "Ponch!" He's still got it! I follow Erik on Twitter and he seems like a nice guy. Not sure what to make of the rumors of him having nothing to do with CHiPs anymore.

I always tell my friends I'm not partial to police officers (dating wise) and then I caught an episode of CHiPs on ME-TV and my memories of John Baker (Larry Wilcox) came rushing back.

When everyone was panting for Mr. Estrada , I was all for Larry :-) 0f course I was also 7 years old.

I do. Since Erik distanced himself from CHiPs, there's some Erik bashing going on. Erik is taking part in some CHiPs autograph show this month. Erik didn't participate in the reunion a couple of years ago.

Ah....I haven't watched the show in years and have only been able to catch bits on MeTV.  I don't remember the other officer's names.   Just Worf, the blonde woman who was always on Battle of the Network Stars and Bruce Jenner before the surgery and cra cra.

BB, get ready to howl!

OMG, that was HILARIOUS!!!

 

Sorry it took me so long to get back here.  But dang, I gotta say, that was worth the wait.

What do you think of Larry, BBuzz?  Or anybody else out there.

Larry?  At the time, I didn't find him all that hot, cause I wasn't into blondes.  Today, when I look back at the pics of these two, I find him a lot more attractive than I did back then.

 

Tastes sure do change.

Well the reason Erik will always be a bit ridiculous to me are the late night real estate scam infomercials he's done.

 

Here's one of the short ones (they usually run longer, since 3am infomercial time is cheap):

I thought he had a lull where he didn't have much acting work, so maybe he did those to pay the bills?

Well, it depends on if he was just a talking head for them, or one of the owners of the "real estate developers".  These things are always scams though, and it doesn't speak well of him being involved.

I don't understand the furor over Sue's commentary.  Chips is on now, it's what Larry is known for , why would you not want to discuss it?

 

I am kind of lost, I don't know who Sue is, I gather she is someone that runs a fan site?

No, no, come on over.

 

My addiction moments are devoted to PTV now, I have had to take a hiatus on FB.  But if they are having conversations without me having to log in, send over the link.

There is also apparently a Chips chat group.  Of course, I hope people will come here.


So-group round table-does anyone else find the little boy, Chris Roberts cute or irritating?  Is his mother worth it?  I think she and Jon had nice chemistry.

Sue's commentary doesn't bother me. I enjoy some of the behind the scenes info she has. I don't join in the weekend discussions she runs, though.

I did like Jon with the mother. It seemed like he was a serial dater. Did he ever date anyone for more than one episode?

You mean that annoying little blonde that "rode motorcycles" and constantly ran away from his apparently neglectful mother and fell in the river?
