Rick Hunter is a renegade cop who breaks the rules and takes justice into his own hands. Partnered with the equally stunning and rebellious Sgt. McCall, the tough-minded duo set out to crack down on L.A.'s slimiest criminals.
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

Throughout the series, William Shatner had girlfriends of the week that were usually played by actresses 19 to over 25 years younger than him, although at least one was only 13 years younger. Lee Bryant and Leigh Christian, the actresses that played his ex-wife Fran, were both about 14 years younger than Shatner.
In a case of life mirroring television, Shatner has progressively wed much younger women. While Gloria Rand, his first wife, does not list an age, it appears by her acting work she was likely within about 5 years of Shatner. His second wife Marcy Lafferty, whom he was married to at the time of the series, was 15 years younger. His third wife Nerine Kidd was 28 years younger. Finally, his fourth wife Elizabeth Shatner, whom he married in 2001 about 16 years after the series ended, is 30 years younger than him. See more »
If you look closely at the front grill of Hooker and Romano's car, there's always a square or circular part cut out, revealing the placement of a camera in the car for action shots. See more »
T.J. Hooker was the best cop show in my opinion for many reasons.
Firstly, the storylines and action scenes were very good. But the thing I liked most was seeing the superb William Shatner playing Hooker.
Hooker was human. He was divorced from his wife because of his dedication to the job. He was a great mentor to rookie officers and he always cared about the victims of crime. And he was persistent when it came to chasing the villains. In Hookers eyes, no crime was minor and every victim of crime was a human being with feelings.
It would be so hard to recommend certain episodes because they were all good. The 3rd episode of season 1 was good-Hooker was on the trail of two drug dealers who had killed a young girl. His dedication was second to none as he pursued the bad guys.
A great show. Hooker is the type of police officer I hope exists in real life.
