A wealthy mystery man named Charlie runs a detective agency via a speakerphone and his personal assistant, John Bosley. His detectives are three beautiful women, who end up in a variety of difficult situations.
In the tradition of other cop shows like "Miami Vice" and "Car 54, Where Are You?", this series is no exception. The viewer follows the exploits of T.J. Hooker and Vince Romano as police officers, as they track criminals and enforce the law.Written by

The second series in which a character portrayed by William Shatner has a first and middle name with some combination of the letters "J" and "T". In this series, his initials "T.J." stand for Thomas Jefferson. In his best known role as Captain Kirk in "Star Trek", his character's first and middle name is James Tiberius, again using the "J" and "T" initials. See more »
In multiple occurrences, one team may be notified that another team is waiting for contact on another Tact channel. The team contacts them - but without physically switching channels. It is necessary to turn the knob on the radio to 'Tact 2' or 'Tact 3' in order to use a different channel other than the main broadcast channel. See more »
T.J. Hooker reminds me of Dirty Harry in some respects. Like DH, Hooker is tough, especially on the bad guys. He's a no-nonsense cop, but at least he still has some sense of humor.
This is one of the most underrated cop shows. It may not be the best police drama ever made, but it has its moments. Plus, it's good to see William Shatner having success outside Star Trek. And this series shows that he could (and still can) do exactly that.
