T.J. Hooker 2.04 Blind Justice (1982)

When a blind woman is present at an armed robbery but claims that she can tell Hooker nothing, his gut tells him that she knows more. Meanwhile, Romano’s trying to get tickets for the sold-out Beach Boys concert.

6/10

A cheerful, but perhaps guilty, pleasure. Special mention for Shatner talking about ‘listening to his gut’ and when you have a gut like Shatner was developing, you’ve got to listen to it! Elsewhere, there is some decent action (I always appreciate the fact that the car chases aren’t perfect), some good blind acting from then-Shatner’s-wife Marcy Lafferty and a sequence reminiscent of classic Audrey Hepburn thriller Wait Until Dark. As the cherry on top, Hooker’s past is also revealed to contain surfing buddyness with the Beach Boys. Is he the perfect man?

This T.J. Hooker episode contains violence.

Classified PG by BBFC. Parental Guidance.
