Storyline

This was the pilot to the long running series, about a cop, Rick Hunter, who has two things going against him. The first is that his family is involved with organized crime. So, most of the cops don't trust him. And most of his partners get seriously injured. Now his commanding officer, Captain Cain, has it in for him. Currently, he is forcing him to see a psychiatrist, and that if he wants to work in the field, he has to have a partner and the only one who is willing to work with him, Bernie Terwilleger, a less than competent cop. Hunter then decides to team with the only other cop, who has a hard time with partners, too, Dee Dee McCall. Currently, they are working on a case involving a possible serial killer, but since Terwilliger was the first cop at the scene, it's his case. But Hunter sensing that Terwilliger will not give it his all, decides to investigate on his own. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Hunter is like a nice version of our favourite cop, Harry Callahan. They both have unorthodox ways in dealing with "the scum". But while Harry seems to be stone cold, Hunter is "the perfect father". Very funny indeed!

Hunter is a very entertaining, though rather stupid series. The cases are standard, but Hunter is a very funny character to watch. He is so good at everything...And he always shoots the bad guy with several bullets in the chest (watch...it happens in almost every episode)!
