Cast / crew
When Hooker discovers the dead body of a beautiful young woman on the beach he determines to exact justice despite being unable to identify her.
It’s a bit more variable than most episodes with several strong sequences where things are taken far more slowly than is usual for the show. A dead girl’s hand grasping Hooker’s arm makes an impression as does quietly looking around her apartment when they eventually find it. However, the romantic angle is half-hearted (though bikini-heavy) and there are two notably naff sequences where the bad guys attempt to assassinate Hooker (the car bomb even uses recycled footage from an earlier episode, badly). As a bonus, Romano does manage to wear the worst funeral suit in television history.
This T.J. Hooker episode contains violence, mild unpleasant scenes.
