Storyline

"HAMMERED: The Best of Sledge" (Laserdisc) - Prepare yourself for four crime stories that pack more punch than Sledge Hammer's trusty Magnum. And loaded with more misadventure than there is air between Sledge's ears. Our hero find himself up against the likes of the infamous Elvis impersonator serial killer, a powerful Mafioso Don, the sex-starved Elizabeth, and a violent revolutionary. Armed only with a Magnum, grenades, several Uzi machine-guns, and a bazooka, our hero singlehandedly makes the streets safe again for law-abiding citizens. Written by <damour@sanders.com>

Quotes

Sledge Hammer: Any calls?
Dori: Three. Two wrong numbers and an offer to cater a Bar Mitzvah. I told them 'no,' 'no,' and 'maybe.'
Sledge Hammer: [Notices that Doreau is sporting a Veronica Lake hairstyle] New hairdo?
Dori: Yes. This is what happens when I can't afford my regular hairdresser.
Sledge Hammer: Just remember, if you don't look good, we don't look good. Nice outfit; now that the first time you look like a real... girl.
Dori: Yeah, if I don't get my hair fixed, I'll need a guide dog.
[Blows her hair off her face]

Fun,off the wall show.
11 December 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is a show that still puts many comedies on TV to shame.Constantly funny,obvious dirty digs at Moonlighting,FOX network,and even Sledge's own damage to ABCs ratings.A nice,likeable cast,and over the top villans made it Batman of the 80s.This show needs to be on DVD for the whole world to enjoy.David Rasche was a comedic genious on this show.
