 [The Original Unofficial NASH BRIDGES]

Bombs Away
November 21, 1997

Gordon Hom

Most of the women introduced in NASH BRIDGES are people that Nash has known before or have had a history with. The show is like a throbbing male ego - if there's an attractive woman, Nash's fingerprints are all over her, even before the audience gets to know her. When the title bombshell Tamara taunts Nash with her body, he retorts by slipping her bracelet off via sleight of hand. These bad women seldom get caught on NASH BRIDGES and there's a lot of them running around and piling up out there in NASH world. Maybe they're all going to get together and compare notes and really give Nash a workout. There was bad little Traci Lords last season (now appearing in PROFILER as a serial killer in training), and that red-haired bad cop (now appearing as a commando in SOLDIER OF FORTUNE,INC.) And what happened to Lynnette (from Episode 39, "Revelations"), Lisa's trashy sister who stayed with Cassidy? Lynnette wasn't outright bad, just naughty. Lynnette couldn't resist bringing home a one-night stand in her short stay with Cassidy. You always get the feeling they all could make a return appearance, but so far that hasn't happened. Only Nash knows them from his colorful past, and they're pulled out like rabbits out of a endless hat.

Why don't these women get caught? Perhaps its because of their excessive sexuality - these women are just doing what comes "naturally" - just like Nash/Don does what comes naturally to him. Can Nash/Don help it if women swoon over him? Is it a crime to be beautiful, so beautiful that men would commit crimes to possess an openly sexual woman? Can you blame these women? NASH BRIDGES exhibits a open policy - if you condemn these women, then you condemn that Don Johnson magic also. It's live and let live.

Joe's business venture this week is his marketing of the family salsa recipe. Schlocko shoot-em-up director Robert Rodriguez (DESPERADO, FROM DUSK 'TIL DAWN) puts in an appearance as a commercial director. Nash's apartment is an amazing place - last week a bachelorette party with male strippers was held there, and this week there's mariachis, chickens, goats, and llamas in the apartment. Along with the bullet holes from the shoot-outs, Nash's apartment is one happening place. It's a place where celebration is contained and absorbed with good humor. Now that the November sweeps are coming to a close with the Thanksgiving holiday, these last three flashy episodes ("Revelations," "Most Wanted," and "Bombshell") will leave the NASH season in good rating spirits.
