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

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 »
Hunter was a conventional detective show in most respects, but had an innovation that advanced the genre to new levels: the laws of physics were changed so that when cars crashed, they spiraled upwards at a 45 degree angle. You could count on this happening at least once per show, and always at the same point in the soundtrack.
The only detective series to better Hunter in repeatable phenomena was Mannix, a forgotten show from the 60s. Not only would a car drive off the same cliff at least once per show, but Mannix would be whacked on the brain stem at the exact same point in the show every week, and display no ill effects. Or, come to think of it, maybe that was why the dialog was so bad...
