T.J. Hooker is one of the last real cop dramas we have left. There weren't any forensics and DNA readings in the program. It's just a story about a conservative crusader police sergeant who is fighting crime in a liberal city which even he does not fully understand.
The show does a nice job with all of the red tape the police have to go through to trap criminals as if their job was not hard enough.
The pilot is really well done as we see Hooker's origin revealed: he was a Vietnam veteran who lost his partner in a scuffle. He takes on the task of training new recruits and gives them a lot of knowledge during their on-the-job training. The show is poignant and comedic at the same time (later to be all-serious when CBS took the show over in 1985). It's filled with problems, strife, gangsters, scum and endless car and foot chases. It may be the best of the old school cop shows. They built Hooker right!

What isn't to love about TJ Hooker? First off, TJ stands for Thomas Jefferson, and not Tiberius James as I assumed. Supported by a partner who seems to be the result of a Denny Terrio and 70s John Travolta crossbreeding experiment gone terribly awry (Adrian Zmed), a has been 60s heartthrob (Bobby Darin) and Heather Locklear, who qualifies as eye candy as long as you're watching her with the volume off. Hooker is the people's cop. Close your eyes during one of Hooker's monologues and you can almost smell the garlic coming from the ranting mouth of your crazy ultra right wing uncle. In a nutshell, that is what makes TJ Hooker a great show--they're like family... a big, lovable whacked out family.

It is a little dated but ier or just startingtain actors when theyt were youngt is fun to see cer out. It is like a little tv time capsule that captures a certain time and place.

It was a great series but I wish they would release the other seasons on DVD so I could own all the episodes.

Hooker is the type of cop who is hard, but he cares about the young idiots out there. And if you are a criminal your *** his his.

How many cop shows does the 70s/early 80s need? And why are they all the same? I reviewed Starsky and Hutch and said it was terrible. It was. But this show was even worse. This one was laughable. Shatner's delivery of his lines was laugh out loud funny. And the boring story line. How about those strange people playing cops--that skinny dorky looking guy that played "Romano" was just so miscast. Not worth your time. Skip this one and go straight for Adam-12 if you want to watch a first rate cop show.
