T.J. Hooker 3.17 Hot Property (1984)

When a policeman is discovered dead at a drug bust, it seems that he may have been on the take but the supplier is successfully deflecting the efforts of honest cops to nail him (including getting Stacy suspended). Meanwhile, an ex-fiancee of Stacy’s returns to her life and this is not a coincidence.

6/10

Fun, though Hooker hilariously breaks the case by identifying a spent match! There’s a generous amount of good well-filmed stunt work and there are probably more bullets fired in this episode than the rest of the season put together. There’s even a bullet fired by Stacy. Just the one, mind you, despite her using an assault rifle. She also gets an expanded role without having to take her clothes off! Best stunt is probably two dudes jumping out of the way of a speeding car (it looks really close and the double personnel makes it extra dangerous) and most fun stunts are the climax when Hooker throws the baddie through what seems to be every wall in a warehouse ending up in a elevator shaft (Hooker: "Alright maggot, let’s go. We’re on the wrong floor.").

This T.J. Hooker episode contains violence.
