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 was the best cop show in my opinion for many reasons.
Firstly, the storylines and action scenes were very good. But the thing I liked most was seeing the superb William Shatner playing Hooker.
Hooker was human. He was divorced from his wife because of his dedication to the job. He was a great mentor to rookie officers and he always cared about the victims of crime. And he was persistent when it came to chasing the villains. In Hookers eyes, no crime was minor and every victim of crime was a human being with feelings.
It would be so hard to recommend certain episodes because they were all good. The 3rd episode of season 1 was good-Hooker was on the trail of two drug dealers who had killed a young girl. His dedication was second to none as he pursued the bad guys.
A great show. Hooker is the type of police officer I hope exists in real life.
