      From November 1978, CHiPs: The Sheik is from the second season and stars, as always, Erik Estrada and Larry Wilcox. The fun of this particular outing is guest star Kario Salem, who plays the title role. Actually, he’s the son of

      of the show is out on the water and has our heroes on jet skis, getting all wet. It was a little over the top, but then that’s how this show was.

      All in all, especially with Salem’s presence, this is a decent hour of viewing.
