Goofs

The exterior shots of Hooker and Romano's patrol car almost never match the background processing plates used for the shots of the car interior. For instance, if the exterior shots show them driving through a business district, the interior shots will show them driving through a residential area and vice versa. See more »

The TV equivalent of Dirty Harry
20 January 2001 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

T.J. Hooker reminds me of Dirty Harry in some respects. Like DH, Hooker is tough, especially on the bad guys. He's a no-nonsense cop, but at least he still has some sense of humor.

This is one of the most underrated cop shows. It may not be the best police drama ever made, but it has its moments. Plus, it's good to see William Shatner having success outside Star Trek. And this series shows that he could (and still can) do exactly that.
