Jimmy Lynch is angry because his older brother, who was injured as a result of an off duty fire rescue, is denied benefits by the city. At the same time, Mayor Tyler is embroiled in a political scandal that he denies all previous knowledge of. Jimmy begins painting "Tyler Knew, Turk 182" as an embarrassment to the mayor. The mayor is furious at this grafitti appearing all over the city and orders the police to find the artist. Jimmy's "Turk 182" spraypaints continue to appear. Written by

The "Turk 182" tag is loosely inspired by the real-life tag of "TAKI 183", one of New York City's first and most famous graffiti writers. See more »
At the start when the firemen blast Terry Lynch out of the burning window, you can see the wig come off the stuntman as he falls toward the parked car and after he hits the car, you can see it again. See more »
I saw this one a couple years ago on Cinemax, and didn't think it was half bad.
Sure, the plot dragged at times, but how can you hate Turk 182? The film makers had good intentions.
Basically, the plot revolves around a guy (Timothy Hutton) and his brother (Robert Urich) who is injured trying to save children from a fire. Because the guy was intoxicated at the time, the city refuses to foot his medical bills, regardless of the fact that he saved these poor kids from certain death. So, the Timothy Hutton character heckles the mayor by covering the city of New York in graffiti (long story).
Overall, I thought it was a cool idea that was, for the most part, well executed by the cast and crew. So, if you can't find anything good on TV, check out Turk 182.
Zimmerman flew and Tyler knew! :-)
