T.J. Hooker 3.20 Psychic Terror (1984)

When a psychic is brought in to help with a child kidnapping, Hooker is rather more than sceptical despite her previous successes. She requests his assistance but doesn’t tell him why: she has foreseen his death…

5/10

Hooker spectacularly gets through another squad car which is always fun and, despite a psychic consultant storyline which is unconvincing at best, this is a solid episode which zips through the running time. Shatner’s wife Marcy Lafferty is the psychic in her second of four guest starring appearances on the show (as different characters). The climax borrows the telephone-to-telephone sequence from Dirty Harry.

This T.J. Hooker episode contains gun violence.
