Pic of the Day: “Kidnap”

Finally, it’s here! Today’s pic is from the just-released-to-video CHiPs episode “Kidnap,” first broadcast on January 26, 1980. Timothy is a ne’er-do-well by the name of Solkin, who, along with his partner in crime Bickel (Warren Berlinger), is on his way to court to face a number of charges. Needless to say, things go awry from there.

Kidnap - 1980

This episode was directed by Gordon Hessler, who had previously directed Tim in the Kung Fu episode “Ambush” (4.4.75). Unfortunately Tim doesn’t get too much to do here other than drive a Rolls-Royce, but he does get some good line reads in. I had forgotten how enjoyably silly this series could be. Check it out!
