Just another cop show. Shatner is the great or greatest actor for cheesey scripts. Shatner has the instincts for ab lib for commercials, silly scripts, and spots on t v series. Knowing when to add silly humor, over acting, reacting, and just making a point is sign Shatner's specialty. Heck, Shatner can even do rap, which the famous Cptn Kirk, did for a commercial. Regrettable Shatner could not save T J Hooker. T J Hooker was so over formulated, and redundant. The eye candy cast of Locklear, and Zimmerman had the usual shirts of and or tight shirts for ratings. T J stunts on the car hood, throwing the baton, fights with the night sticks etc became repetitive for drama. T J did the smart Kirk role of solving problems and emotional pleas for the situational problems for a formulated script. I usual could only watch 5 to 10 minutes but sometime T.J. Hooker had a excellent script. The under age kid who turned 18 and got what was coming to him, and when Spock was a murdering cop were worth watching. There was some predictable car exploding episodes, and other nail biting memorable ones. I give T.J. Hooker a 5 stars. Some show are 3 stars and other 8, so the average is around 5. T.J. Hooker viewing experience all depends on which episode you watch. ( I love the officer who died before he retired just trying save one more life episode.)
