T.J. Hooker 2.06 Terror at the Academy (1982)

A Vietnam veteran with a grudge against the police decides to target the Police Academy to both satisfy his thirst for revenge and his need for money. He has a better chance of succeeding than most because he is also a trainee policeman.

5/10

Gleefully naff but still fun. This is how you make cheesy Eighties cop shows. You mingle nutty Vietnam veteran vengeance with the quest for a frog costume, Shatner tells the maggot he’s disgracing the honour of all the non-nutty veterans and everyone goes home happy.
