Pacific Blue is an action-packed crime drama that originally aired from 1996 to 2000. The show follows a team of police officers who patrol the beaches of Santa Monica on bicycles. With a mix of action, drama, and romance, Pacific Blue became a popular show during its four-year run.

The show's main characters are part of the Santa Monica Bicycle Patrol Unit, also known as "Pacific Blue". The team is led by Sergeant Palermo, played by Rick Rossovich, a retired Navy SEAL who takes his job seriously and is highly respected by his team. Jim Davidson plays officer Chris Kelly, a former Marine and street-smart cop who often challenges Palermo's authority. Darlene Vogel plays officer Chris Lorenzo, a beautiful and tough woman who takes on dangerous criminals without hesitation. Paula Trickey portrays officer Cory McNamara, a confident and ambitious officer who is always trying to prove herself.

Aside from the main cast, Pacific Blue also features a number of guest stars in each episode, usually playing the role of the criminal that the team is trying to catch. Recurring characters include rookie officer Bobby Cruz, played by Mario Lopez, who must balance his job with his personal life. David Lander plays neighborhood watch captain "Pop" McNulty, who often assists the Pacific Blue team in their investigations. Marcos Antonio Ferraez plays Victor Del Toro, a rival police officer who often clashes with Palermo and the rest of the Pacific Blue team.

Each episode of Pacific Blue follows the team as they work to stop criminals and keep the beaches of Santa Monica safe. The show often features intense chase scenes on bicycles, with the team pursuing suspects through crowds of tourists and down busy streets. The team also deals with more serious crime, including drug trafficking, murder, and gang violence.

While Pacific Blue is primarily a crime drama, the show also features a number of romantic subplots between the characters. Chris Kelly and Chris Lorenzo have an on-again, off-again relationship throughout the series, while Cory McNamara struggles to balance her job with her personal life. There are also a number of episodes that deal specifically with relationships, such as when Bobby Cruz falls in love with a woman who turns out to be a drug dealer.

One of the key strengths of Pacific Blue is its focus on the Santa Monica area. The show often features recognizable landmarks and beaches, and the team frequently interacts with tourists and locals alike. This sense of location helps to ground the series and give it a unique flavor that sets it apart from other crime dramas.

Overall, Pacific Blue is a fast-paced and entertaining crime drama that is perfect for fans of action and suspense. With its mix of intense chases, personal drama, and tough crime-solving, the show remains a beloved classic of 90s television.

Pacific Blue is a series that is currently running and has 5 seasons (101 episodes). The series first aired on March 20, 1996.
