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

Throughout the series, William Shatner had girlfriends of the week that were usually played by actresses 19 to over 25 years younger than him, although at least one was only 13 years younger. Both Lee Bryant and Leigh Christian, the actresses that played his ex-wife Fran, were both about 14 years younger than Shatner.
In a case of life mirroring television, Shatner has progressively wed much younger women. While Gloria Rand, his first wife, does not list an age, it appears by her acting work she was likely within about 5 years of Shatner. His second wife Marcy Lafferty, whom he was married to at the time of the series, was 15 years younger. His third wife Nerine Kidd was 28 years younger. Finally, his fourth wife Elizabeth Shatner, whom he married in 2001 about 16 years after the series ended, is 30 years younger than him. See more »
If you look closely at the front grill of Hooker and Romano's car, there's always a square or circular part cut out, revealing the placement of a camera in the car for action shots. See more »
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.
