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

The second series in which a character portrayed by William Shatner has a first and middle name with some combination of the letters "J" and "T". In this series, his initials "T.J." stand for Thomas Jefferson. In his best known role as Captain Kirk in "Star Trek", his character's first and middle name is James Tiberius, again using the "J" and "T" initials. See more »
Whenever Hooker is in a hot-pursuit and calls for back-up, there are rarely any units backing them up until the suspect either gets away or is apprehended after a run or small fight. See more »
This series was shown on Sunday evenings in the UK in the early eighties. Being a fan of the original Star Trek and William Shatner in general (we'll forget Horror at 37000 feet !!) and a lover of cop shows I sat down relaxed with my cup of coffee looking forward to being entertained. How wrong could I have been ? The acting was wooden not helped by the scripts and there was this really oily feel good feeling that the production team were trying impress on the audience. In common with all sorts of cop shows no one ever seems to get promoted however many cases they crack. As for William Shatner ...... I got divorced because the job is more important. What sort of an attitude is that ? And as for that wig he wore ..... his hair looked like it had been professionally coiffured each week and all on a sergeants salary. James Darren, Helen Lockyer - you are worth more than this rubbish.
