T.J. Hooker 2.14 Decoy, The (1983)

When a serial killer targets young beautiful blond women, Stacey agrees to become a decoy but Hooker is unconvinced that someone of her inexperience should be placed in such a situation.

6/10

Directed by Shatner’s Star Trek colleague Leonard Nimoy, this is solid and snappy. As would become usual, the more police work Heather Locklear is required to do, the less clothes she wears so she gets naked for a shower and spends most of the rest of the time walking around in a bikini. To be fair, the episode also requires the bad guy to wander around in his shorts so it’s not entirely one-sided.

This T.J. Hooker episode contains gun violence.
