Rick Hunter is a renegade cop who breaks the rules and takes justice into his own hands. Partnered with the equally stunning and rebellious Sgt. McCall, the tough-minded duo set out to crack down on L.A.'s slimiest criminals.
In the tradition of other cop shows like "Miami Vice" and "Car 54, Where Are You?", this series is no exception. The viewer follows the exploits of T.J. Hooker and Vince Romano as police officers, as they track criminals and enforce the law.Written by

When Hooker gets shot, it's usually in the right shoulder. See more »
In numerous instances, cars that have crashed explode violently into flames. Aside from nitrous oxide devices that may be in some cars, there is no reason that a car would simply burst into flames, as petrol is not sufficiently volatile. See more »
T.J. Hooker is... Hilariously Entertaining and Full of Shatner!
Of all the cheesy 80's cop shows, "T.J. Hooker" is my new favorite! I love movies and shows that are so bad they're funny, and this a perfect example of that.
William Shatner plays the titlular character, a mediocre cop who gets hailed as one slick guy. Shatner has that same quality as others like Alec Baldwin and Steven Seagal: the ability to be comical without even trying. His facial expressions and acting gild the lily. The other stars of the series (Adrian Zmed and Heather Locklear) aren't much better.
The show has plenty of corny, lovable quirks, including but not limited to: tubular 80's action soundtrack, sloppy stunts, HUGE explosions, awful dialogue, orangutans, break dancing, and did I mention 80's music?
In the episode, "A Child Is Missing", Hooker heads to solve a case in Mexico along with a guy named Gomez. Those are traits used in Shatner's book Tek-War, which was actually written by a ghostwriter. It seems William has few ideas of his own!
If you are looking for something truly interesting, don't mess with T.J.. But if you like cheesy 80's fun, I recommend this! SPOOOOOOOOCK!
