Nostalgia Con reunited Larry Wilcox and Erik Estrada for a CHiPs reunion panel.  I watched CHiPs religiously as a kid, and I was really excited to see this panel.

Erik spoke at length about what inspired him to become a police officer in real life, and it has nothing to do with CHiPs.  I won’t go into details, but he was visiting an office were officers were part of a team targeting child exploitation.

Larry and Erik touched briefly on their past conflicts.  Erik Estrada told the story of his on-set accident during film a scene of CHiPs.  Larry’s former military training kicked in and Erik credits Larry with saving his life.  Their relationship improved after that, and Erik proclaimed his love for his brother.

It feels like they are just two very different people, and there were other issues onset which created an environment ripe for arguments, but it was quite enjoyable to see these two men laugh together thirty (30) years later.
