Did You Know?

Trivia

Was originally to be titled The Protectors, which would be the title of the show's pilot. Creator Rick Husky originally developed the show as a newer version of his previous series The Rookies, and intended the show as an ensemble series. Noting William Shatner's prominence in the pilot, it was decided to make Hooker the focus of the show, and title the series after the character. See more »

Goofs

In numerous instances, cars that have crashed explode violently into flames. Aside from nitrous oxide devices that may be in some cars, there is no reason that a car would simply burst into flames, as petrol is not sufficiently volatile. See more »

Captain Kirk as a Cop! What more can you want!?!?
5 March 2016 | by anthony_highsmithSee all my reviews

OK First Off. Screw off anyone who disses the Shat. He was born to play a hero. And TJ Hooker is everything you want your hero to be. He is beast, He is human, He is emotional, He is caring, He is a signifier of justice, He is no holds barred, He will do anything to catch the bad guy. The only thing remotely bad about the show is Adrian Zmed. Who looks like it takes a little too much outta him to hit on the ladies if you know what I mean. Who wouldn't want to be handcuffed by Stacy? I'd still let her handcuff me today! There is 80s cheese. But the awesome thing is it is STILL AWESOME. The ep where Hooker chases down the rapist in the park. No way that scene would be filmed again. The dialogue was cheesy. The fight scenes for their time were good. But watching them again it's funny. But it's my favorite scene of the entire series. I am 32 years old. The series came out in 82. A year before I was born. And I got seasons 1&2 at Ollies. And I've watched the bejesus outta it. Car chases, Cheesy explosions, Cheesy Dialogue and I love it all!!!!! Don't buy it and expect a strict police procedural drama. If you want bad guys taken down and called "scum" and "punk". Get this!!!! Shat Rules!!!!! Every Precinct should be full if TJ HOOKERS!
