Storyline

Free-wheeling San Francisco cop Harry Hooperman inherits a run down apartment building, and the building owner's mean, hateful and just plain annoying dog Bijoux. Not having the time to maintain the building and tend to his police work, Hooperman hires feisty aspiring writer Susan Smith as his superintendent/maintenance person. He and Smith soon begin a relationship, and the series chronicles the ups and downs of the relationship, along with Hooperman's efforts as a policeman. Written by Jason A. Cormier <wildrose@mindspring.com>

I wish Hooperman had never died
29 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am one of maybe a few people who thought that this show was the greatest show on TV at that time, and boy oh boy do we need a show like this on TV now.With all the stupid reality(Better known as crap TV) shows on TV, it was really refreshing to turn on your TV at 9:00 on Wednesday night and not only hear a great opening theme but get a beautifully written well acted entertaining show to boot.For me Hooperman was that good friend that you knew you were going to see every Wednesday night for one hour. And that's a feeling that none of these silly reality shows will ever, ever be able to give any real TV watcher.

And it's a shame that now he's gone forever, and the magic of Hooperman is gone as well. God bless you Hooperman wherever you are.
