T.J. Hooker is my Favorite cop show of all time, 22 August 2005
Author: w22nuschler from United States

I did not watch this when it was originally on TV. I was only 12 at the time. I have seen all the episodes many times in syndication and I love them all. William Shatner is the greatest actor since John Wayne He has a little John Wayne & Dirty Harry in him in the role of Hooker. He gives his all in every scene he's in. I love the fact that he is Mr. Morality. He point outs the good guys and the bad guys and he busts the bad guys as it should be. We shouldn't have to hear people whining about the criminal rights, what about the victims. That's what this show brings us. Other than Adam-12 and Dragnet, I don't see right and wrong laid out to us in such a direct way.

The cast is also perfect. William Shatner is as good as he was in Star Trek. Adrian Zmed is a perfect partner. He is a rookie who is willing to learn from the master. They also have good chemistry especially when they are being funny. I always loved the light moments. Ramano was always trying to get Hooker to buy a new car, eat better or try something he believes in. Heather Locklear is the sweetest, most beautiful woman I have I ever seen. She was so sweet and sexy on the show. I liked how she was playing a good person instead of all the later roles where she wasn't very nice. James Darren was also very good. He and Heather had good chemistry, kind of like Shatner & Zmed did. And there was a balance of 2 veterans and two rookies.

The episodes all had good positives messages about drawbacks of drug use, the use of "Illegal" guns by criminals, dealing with a handicap and busting punks who break the law.

All in all it's the best cop show ever, followed close by Adam-12, Dranet & Chips. I love them all. They don't make entertaining cop shows like that anymore.
