T.J. Hooker 2.02 King of the Hill (1982)

When a hill racer wants to get enough money to build the fastest car he resorts to robbing supermarkets. Meanwhile, Romano is having a slightly masculine crisis about his driving abilities.

6/10

Wonderfully cheesy episode with a generous amount of humour, action and, most importantly, entertainment. Future series star James Darren pops up as a hill racer (“Devil” Dan Danko) with smudgy stubble and a sweet hat. And Shatner delivers not one but two of his wonderfully intense and straight-faced monologues about catching crims and remembering victims: “The maggots I’m looking for… they’re heavy and I want them.” More!

This T.J. Hooker episode contains unpleasant scene, violence.
