Rick Hunter is a renegade cop who bends 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.
Detective Sergeant Rick Hunter (Fred Dryer) and his partner, Detective Sergeant Dee Dee McCall (Stepfanie Kramer), are homicide investigators with the Los Angeles Police Department. Often they must go undercover to catch a variety of Los Angeles-style villains. Sporty James (Garrett Morris), a helpful Police informant, occasionally provided a bit of humor in this action-drama television series.Written by

Over the course of the series, Detective Sergeant Rick Hunter would change his service weapon from a 9mm semi-auto to a .44 Magnum to an IMI Desert Eagle (first time used on any cop show), back to a revolver, then back to a semi-auto pistol. Despite all of these handgun changes, the gun shown in the show's introduction never changed from the 9mm semi-auto. See more »
Vehicles often explode when they crash. This is not probable because automobiles and other vehicles do not use explosive fuel, only flammable fuel. See more »
Did you hear that gunshot?
That wasn't a gunshot. It was a branch that had fallen off of a tree due to the insurmountable weight of the snow that landed upon it.

When the show was shown on the TBS network up until 2002, The episode intro teaser in all season 5 and 6 episodes had the first few notes of the opening title play over the titles popping up on the screen. Episodes now shown on TV Land have restored Fred Dryer's original voiceover in this part saying "Tonight On Hunter". See more »
One of the better detective shows despite a plethora of gaffes.
Why did everyone sound like they can from NYC when it was set in LA? Why was the Italian mob active in LA? Why did so many cars explode when shot or when wrecking? How do tires squeal on dirt and gravel? So many questions but despite all of the inconsistencies, this show was fun to watch and entertaining.
