T.J. Hooker 1.05 Witness, The (1982)

Hooker and Romano respond to a murder committed during a robbery but a witness to the crime proves unresponsive.

6/10

Plenty of action, Shatner being a hero and endlessly leaping off stuff onto bad guys (“the nose knows, junior”), a bit of humour and the lovely Lisa Hartman in shorts: what more could one want? Special mention for the scene in the opening car chase where you can see the camera crew filming the action as Hooker and the pursuee enter the storm drain. If you missed it, don’t worry, the producers would use the same footage several times during the next five years.

This T.J. Hooker episode contains gun violence, strong threat.

Classified 12 by BBFC. Suitable only for persons of 12 years and over.
