T.J. Hooker 1.04 Hooker’s War (1982)

Hooker gets involved with illegal gun-running in the city but relishes the chance to work alongside Pete Benedict, his partner when he was a detective.

6/10

Normally the term clichéd is used in a derogatory sense but this thoroughly entertaining episode elicits cheers of delight when Shatner spits out such beauties as “If you want a war, you can have it”, “…being dead is as much trouble as there is” and other golden oldies. There’s even a detective on his last case.

This T.J. Hooker episode contains unpleasant scene.
