The three detectives fight every kind of criminal all over New York City. The show featured many actual New York City locations, as well as episodes based on real New York City police cases. Written by

As a Native New Yorker I could definitely relate to this show. The old green and white cruisers with the cherry globe spinning around on the roof of those squad cars. But what really stood out to me in these series was the realities of a cops life on the beat. Most cop shows back then always showed the safer side (if u will) of dealing with cops and robbers. Until I saw an episode on NYPD where a beat cop was trying to break up a dice game in front of this tenement and the thugs playing the game jumped the cop and mercilessly beat him down. Had not one of the detective squads happen to be in that neighborhood and saw what was happening, that cop might not have made it. When I saw that, it shook me as a kid seeing this defenseless police officer getting the worst of it from the bad guys. But I really liked Hooks and the fact that we had a Black detective on the force which was pretty groundbreaking for the 60's. All in all I thought it was a great series. I wonder why it didn't last longer? If anyone out there can lend insight to this by all means e mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Also where can I get DVD's from this series or does some foreign entity owns it?
