Nash Bridges, the San Francisco-based cop show starring Don Johnson premiered on CBS 20 years ago this week. Seen here filming on Bush Street in 1996, Johnson and co-star Cheech Marin became fixtures on the streets of San Francisco even before the March 16, 1996 debut.

Nash Bridges ran for 122 episodes from 1996-2001. The show is remembered for its City locations, mostly seen from Bridge’s yellow 1971 Plymouth Barracuda convertible.

In early 2000, Johnson made headlines after he got drunk and hit on a woman at Mas Sake, 2030 Lombard Street, a Marina sushi restaurant.
