Nominated for three Emmys, Hunter stands out as one of the premiere action police dramas of the 1980s. Just as Tom Selleck's on-camera charisma carried Magnum, P.I. through nine highly-rated seasons, Fred Dryer's knack for drawing an audience to his unique persona carried an otherwise lackluster series through much of the decade. The brainchild of Frank Lupo, creator of The A-Team (1982) and writer for such hit series as Battlestar Galactica (1978), Magnum, P.I. (1980), and Walker, Texas Ranger (1993), Hunter is built on the clichéd concept of a rogue cop who breaks the rules and takes justice into his own hands. Dryer does well in his role as the Clint Eastwood of the small screen, yet the show's writers give him little to work with in terms of a highly developed character and, as the seasons pass, the plot becomes quite formulaic. Nevertheless, Hunter is pure mind-numbing police chase entertainment with the added element of nostalgia for those who long for the 1980s when Hunter ruled along with The A-Team, Magnum, Miami Vice, and Knight Rider, and I for one loved those shows...!

Hunter follows the life of Los Angeles Police Department detective Sgt. Rick Hunter (Fred Dryer), a renegade cop whose family has ties to organized crime. This family tree, coupled with a penchant for getting his partners injured and a propensity to bend the rules, make Hunter an unpopular guy within the department. Only two officers will even agree to partner with him - Bernie Terwilliger (James Whitmore Jr.), who's a total incompetent, and Dee Dee McCall (Stepfanie Kramer), a stunning brunette with a rebellious streak of her own (and also disliked by her colleagues).

I am a huge fan of this classic tv cop show of the 80's. Sgt. Rick Hunter was a tough, no-nonsense, type of cop that had the perfect partner in Dee Dee McCall. The chemistry between the two characters was great! During the second season, the show really begin to find its groove with some really great episodes. It would evolve into one of the most loved cop shows of its time. Some of my favorites from this season include: "Night of the Dragon," "Million Dollar Misunderstanding," "Rape & Revenge," "Fagin 1986," "Scrap Metal," & The Beautiful & the Dead." These episodes truly show the evolution of the series with the first three being more like the first season of the show focusing more on action, while the later three deal more with dramatic storytelling.

I own all of the previously released Anchor Bay sets and purchased the first Mill Creek set. The main thing that I am disappointed in is the lack of original music in these early season sets. I understand all that has been said about music costs and copyright laws, but it is still a shame that agreements could not have been reached for the fans even if the costs for the DVD's would have had to be more. As the show progressed, they used less mainstream music, so that will not be as much of an issue for the later seasons.

One thing of note about the second season Anchor Bay set is that the show's intro that is included is the exact same as the intro from season one. While it contains the same opening theme, the season two intro includes many new clips and credits. You would think that if we cannot have the original music from the episodes, we could at least have the correct opening sequence. I look forward to seeing this new Mill Creek set to see if the correct intros have been included.

Hunter was not a great TV series but, compared to most of what's available now, it was terrific. Hunter, an honest but maverick cop from a criminal background, was adeptly played by former football star Fred Dryer (the only player in NFL history to score two safeties in one game). His partner Dee Dee McCall was played by beautiful and spunky Stepfanie Kramer. Together they broke every rule in the book but always got the bad guys, no matter how the odds were stacked against them. Hunter wasn't an accurate portrayal of police work, and it definitely wasn't politically correct, but it was a lot of fun. I'm glad that it's now available on DVD.

This is the best TV show I have ever seen. It was translated into Chinese about 10-20 years ago. A whole generation of people watched it everyday. It's one of the best memory we have in our mind. For most of the kids, Hunter and McCall are the biggest heroes. I have been waiting for so many years to rewatch it. Now, I have the chance to get the DVD. It's fatanstic!

I don't see why they feel the need to re-release this 1985-86 Season of this police drama out on DVD since Anchor Bay already has the first 3 seasons out on DVD along with the fact that they still haven't released the remaining 4 seasons of HUNTERs 7-year run on NBC yet either.

My guess on why they're re-releasing HUNTERs 2nd Season out on DVD is perhaps due to wanting to compensate for all the flaws & boo boos they made on the first 3 seasons of HUNTERs DVD box sets since Anchor Bay did kind of a cheesy job on them.

However, HUNTERs 2nd Season is a definite upgrade from HUNTERs 1st Season as well as the season when Bruce Davison joins the cast & crew as Hunter & McCall's superior officer (Capt.Wyler)at the fictional Metropolitan Police Department in L.A. replacing his predecessor Capt. Dolan(John Amos)and when John Shearin joins the cast & crew as Hunter & McCall's remarkable streetwise fellow officer(Lt. Ambrose Finn)which made his first appearance in the "Blow-Up" episode & when Hunter & McCall's doofus fellow officer Det. Bernie Terwilliger(James Whitmore, Jr.) gets transferred to Internal Affairs & eventually gets promoted to lieutenant.

As a matter of fact, James Whitmore, Jr. directed quite a few episodes of this police drama too like "Night Of The Dragons", "Rich Girl", "The Big Fall", "The Set-Up", "High Noon In LA", "Sniper", "Avenging Angel" etc.
