This site is about the tv cop show Nash Bridges, starring Don Johnson, which aired on CBS with 122 episodes in 6 seasons. The series is currently syndicated in many television markets and is available on DVD.
We received reports from fans watching the syndication episodes and those episodes shown on local affiliates - fans have reported that vintage NASH episodes have a different opening title montage and closing credits.
A special open and close has been created for syndication. The opening titles are unlike any of the previously broadcast openings, and so are the closing credits.
The open and closes use variations of old NASH theme songs, but they have been re-mixed and re-done. The opening contains new images of Nash's badge and more establishing character info.
That's more reason to watch the previous episodes. This difference also helps to distinguish current episodes from past episodes.

With this week's episode "Blow Out" making so many references to previous episodes (indeed this sixth season has used a lot of characters from previous episodes), we barely noticed last week that Melinda Clarke (playing former Minneapolis cop Abby Gordon) has been on before, playing a different character.
Remember Melinda from Episode 28, "Out of Chicago", from Season 2? She played a cop also, but then Melinda was Chicago cop Karen Decker, a greedy cop gone bad. Nash was attracted to her then too, but alas duty called and he put her in the slammer.
Fan Ignores Injury To Watch NASH
(November 13, 2000)
...I wanted to tell you this cute little story about a 10 year old that was in my place of business which is a small community hospital. Last Friday he arrived with his parents to be seen for a minor injury. His main question to me was how long he would have to wait because he did not want to miss N.B. I had to laugh because he and I started talking about our favorites.His mother had to actually take him home and bring him back after the show. Now that is a true fan of the show.
Thank you also for a wonderful web-page. Keep up the great work.

NB Production In (Where Else?) Downtown San Francisco
(November 8, 2000)
Chris Kong was attending the WEB 2000 Conference at the Moscone Center on Wednesday, November 1st. Chris happened to be at the intersection of Battery and Broadway when he spotted the NB production out in force. Among all the huge trailers and trucks, was the 'Cuda parked on Battery Street. Chris was able to walk right up to the 'Cuda parked on the curb, though there were police security guards posted on each end of the block.
Thanks for dropping us a line, Chris!
CSI Scores Before NASH
(November 8, 2000)
Finally, the cursed 9PM time slot before NASH BRIDGES has finally been broken. CSI, the forensic police drama produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, is a major hit with viewers. This makes the lead-in to NASH all the more stronger. The Friday night line up of THE FUGITIVE, CSI, and NASH BRIDGES appears to be a solid stronghold for CBS.
