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

Like the previous Aaron Spelling produced/Rick Husky created series "S.W.A.T.", which used the fictional "WCPD" police department, "T.J. Hooker" does not use the LAPD as the police department Hooker and the others are working for despite the fact that they are obviously apart of the LAPD with the look of the uniforms and the design of the patrol cars. In the series, Hooker is apart of the fictitious "LCPD". While there is a Los Angeles County Police, their uniforms and cars are different. See more »
Whenever Hooker is in a hot-pursuit and calls for back-up. There is rarely any units backing them up until the suspects either gets away or are apprehended after a run or small fight. 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.
