Trivia

Every time Stacy Sheridan (Heather Locklear) goes undercover, she gets kidnapped. Often when she is kidnapped, regardless of whether she is undercover or in her street uniform, there is the threat or implication that her abductor wants to/plans to rape her. See more »

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 »

LEAVE MY GUY SHATNER ALONE!
18 June 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

TJ Hooker is/was one of the all time great cop shows. Adam 12 was boring in the extreme as was Dragnet. Hooker is a cop who refuses a promotion so he can continue to do the job that he is best suited for. A street cop who cares. Reed & Malloy and Friday & whoever looked like they could not wait for their shift to end each week. Sure it had the "super hero" feel to it, but you must remember that this was the TV cop format at the time. And the show has a great cast as well. Not like today, who really needs to see Dennis Franz's naked butt, not I that is for sure.
