[Flashing his badge]
I've got 16 years behind that badge, Drasso. And if it wasn't for that, I'd pound your head square. Now, you know where I live and you know when I get off. So if you want a piece of me, come on. If you don't, shove off!

'Hunter' was such a great show - even despite having several cast changes throughout the course of it's 7 year run, the chemistry between characters was inspiring - most definitely the relationship between Hunter and McCall, and the captain between the two themselves (Charles Hallahan was the best captain, in my opinion, of the 3 captains that starred throughout the course of the show)....
Direction, writing, acting, and the associated music (have I left anything out?) were the main components that undoubtedly led to the success of the show...
If you get a chance to watch 'Hunter,' watch it!
