The episode that made Heather Locklear a sex symbol!
27 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Every Heather Locklear fan loves this episode. It was the episode that made many young guys see what kind body she had and how hot she looked. She wears an exotic dancer outfit that is seen in the opening credits of season 3.

The story has a white slavery ring taking young, pretty women away to other countries. Bonnie, a young woman friend of Hooker's and Stacey's is kidnapped after she performs a song on stage as Hooker watches. He tries to stop the kidnapping, but fails. He recognizes a man named Malik, who got away. Richard Lynch plays Dobbs, the leader of the ring. He is known to most as one of the best bad guys TV has ever seen. He ships Bonnie away.

Ramano tells Hooker the man he shot had connections to the Plesure Palace, an exotic dance club on the boulevard. Hooker remembered Bonnie telling him about applying for a job there, but she got rejected. Hooker wants to investigate the Pleasure Palace, but Sergeant Drummond won't let him do it. Stacey decides to go undercover on her own. She applies at the Pleasure Palace wearing skin tight red pants and a sequined top. She also has her hair down and she looks gorgeous. Love the tight pants as well. Dobbs walks in and sees her. He instantly knows he wants to make her part of the slavery ring.

Hooker and the other find out about what Stacey did. She tells them she got the job as an exotic dancer. Corrigan hates the idea, but Hooker decides it's OK(every guy back then must have yelled yes! at the TV). They decide to go undercover as well and put a wire on her and have Corrigan outside recording the goings on inside. Stacey gets ready and shows off the outfit to the guys and she looks incredible. She is wearing a black and white sequined outfit with the top cut out a little around the bust and belly button. She also has on high heels and stockings. She has a nice slender body and she really looks sexy. Most of the time she has her hair up and is wearing a cop uniform. It's a real treat to see what a sexy little body she has. She does a nice dance routine on stage for a few minutes. The first shot is a rather gratuitous shot of her butt wiggling back and forth. She also jiggles her other goods back and forth for all males to linger at.

The next day Dobbs checks out Stacey and her application. She gets by OK. Hooker is able to catch Malik and he gives him a clue to help him catch Dobbs. That Night Stacey does another routine on stage, wearing the same outfit plus a leather skirt and leather jacket. She quickly removes them and does another nice routine. She then takes a drink to Dobbs so she can gets his prints on a glass. They then set up a fake fight so she can give Corrigan the glass. They match his prints to other prints from other crimes he did with Malik.

Dobbs grabs Stacey and heads for the airport. Hooker and the others go to the Pleasure Palace to find out where Dobbs is going. They find out he is headed for the airport. Hooker arrives in time to drive his police car in front of the plane and stop him. He chases him into an old bus yard and shoots him down in self defense. Stacey is fine and they are able to find out where Bonnie is and they save her.

Such a good episode because we get to see the beautiful Heather Locklear in such skimpy clothing. I thank the writer Joe Viola who wrote some 70's sleaze movies. He knows how to show off good looking women and their bodies. Also I give a major nod to Richard Lynch, who plays the bad guy better than any other. A 10 out of 10 for the best episode of the series. Now where is the Season 3 DVD release?
