Season 1, Episode 1: Hill Street Station

"Hill Street Station" introduces us to the many stories on the street, in the squad room, and in the homes of both the uniform and plainclothes officers at Hill Street. After Sergeant Phil Esterhaus completes Roll Call, we begin to learn something of the regulars. John "J.D." LaRue goes out of his way to hit on Assistant DA Joyce Davenport. She's at the Hill and livid with Captain Frank Furillo and his Sergeant's, who explain that they have "temporarily misplaced" the suspect she is supposed to have in court in just a few minutes. Meanwhile, while on patrol street cops Andy Renko and Bobby Hill stumble on a liquor store heist that ends in a hostage standoff. Clashes occur between Detective Henry Goldblume, who believes in negotiation and talking to suspects, and Lt. Howard Hunter, a gung-ho commander of a type of SWAT team on the Hill.

Furillo finds only by showing up on the scene himself can he end the situation. Amongst this we meet Sgt.

At the funeral, Councilmember Detweiler tells Furillo, who he'd previously demanded choose sides, that he's going to bury him and Chief Daniels with the Mizell revelations, but Furillo argues for Fuchs anyway, even after dressing him privately down about Mizell's lack of supervision.
