T.J. Hooker 2.11 Connection, The (1982)

When a young girl tries to fly off the top of her local high school and an trainee undercover is left fighting for his life after a narcotics bust goes wrong, Hooker vows to find the PCP distributor and put him away.

5/10

Despite the seriousness of school children taking drugs, this is still a very silly episode. That said, a fist fight in the back of a car while involved in a car chase scores good points and Romano gets a full strop on which is always good for a giggle. Additionally, for South Park fans, we get a scene where a woman screams "they’re gonna kill Kenny." Oh, and add undercover narcotics cop, sign language and the ability to shoot two adjacent holes with one bullet to Hooker’s never-ending list of skills.

This T.J. Hooker episode contains substance abuse and violence.

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