Naughty Girls Need Love Too

Veteran cop Sgt. T.J.Hooker (William Shatner) and his young partner Vince Romano (Adrian Zmed) just happen to be in the local garment district when armed burglars heist fur coats from a struggling furrier. The hostage they take to get away just happens to be Romano's supermodel ex-girlfriend Amy (Barbara Stock). All evidence suggests she was in on it.

A love interest blatantly using a hero cop whilst engaged in criminal enterprise is a tired TV cop show cliché. This show had all of the most melodramatic cop show clichés at one time or another and handled them reasonably well. But if the series ever broke any new ground I never saw it.

At very least the Amy character had some subtext which hinted at her beginnings and what her ambitions had become. Few episodes of the show ever really delved in to the psyche of the criminal balancing out the narrative. It was almost exclusively an unsubtle indefatigable good vs murky evil dialectic and villains carried with them an 'otherness' for lack of a better word.

This episode is chiefly of interest for its superior list of guest-stars which included Barbara Stock, MC Gainey, Thom Christopher and Theresa Saldana. These are excellent actors who sadly weren't given much of a script to work with.

It wasn't very often that a female guest star on this show was better looking than series regular Heather Locklear. Barbara Stock was, and the tall, dark, voluptuous starlet was one of about a thousand TV crushes I had growing up.
