    Hey all, just wondering why did "Riptide" only last for three seasons? Did people not like the storylines or did the cast not want to continue or what was the reason?I am trying to find it on television but can't seem to find it anywhere :-(

    I never cease to be amazed at which shows get put on DVD, whilst others languish on a shelf.  I thought "Riptide" was one of these shows:  under-appreciated.  By the time I saw it over in Germany on the American Forces TV Station, it was off the air!  It still pops up, dubbed, on German TV from time to time.  I used to tape it all the time, too, in German and English, and I bet I still have those tapes in a box in the garage!

    I was just going to ask if anyone had seen it in syndication in the U.S. Guess I'll have to wait for DVDs.
