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>

Hooperman - wonderful show
28 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

I totally agree with the other comment. Here in the UK we are also besieged with moronic reality TV which, with the odd exception, is pure garbage. "Hooperman" was a wonderful 'dramedy' and the fabulous John Ritter was a sheer delight in the lead role, as, indeed, he was in every single role he undertook. Why isn't the series on DVD so fans can at least relive the show?! My God, we need it to watch when others are gawking at the ghastly 'Big Brother' and the like!! Like the amazing David Kelley, all Steven Boccho's shows were well written and observed, with large doses of humour mixed in the with the drama. Shows like "Hooperman" were hugely entertaining without the current 'need' to include sex, foul-mouth swearing, gratuitous violence or people throwing up at least once every half-hour. There was nothing to object to with "Hooperman", and John Ritter proved that he was a versatile, talented actor and not purely a comic actor as many people believed, following 'Three's Company'.
