  • The Dirty Harry of the small screen.

    9.2
    A good cop partner show with a touch of Dirty Harry and the partners were opposite sex. Hunter was tough and got the job done even though it was not always by the rules. His

    female partner McCall was sharp,sexy, and a good charcter to play oppsite the Hunter character. The chemistry between

    the two was awesome and not sexual and they were there for each other like family. The partners did there job and there lives intertwined as one. It seemed fans cared for these characters as much as they cared for each other.



    As Hunter would say "WORKS FOR ME"moreless
  • This was another great cop show of the 80's

    I don't remember much of Fred Dryer's NFL career, but I must say he did well switching over to acting. I think the writing on this show was great too, how could it not be with some of the story lines and situations that they got into. MCall in her little red car, and huner in his big green clunker, meeting somewere that almost always leads into a gun fight of some sort. It was the main cliche' of the 80's but it worked. That was a good duo, and the show was really exciting and action packed. I enjoyed watching this show.moreless
  • This was the all time best cop show made.

    9.4
    My favorite cop show of the 80s was HUNTER. Fred Dryer was awesome as Rick Hunter, a shoot-first-and-ask-questions-later Dirty Harry-type, which is actually what the show started out as, but the character was toned down a little afterwards. Stephanie Kramer, as D.D. McCall, was the best of his three female partners, as was Charles Hallahan as the third of three different captains. It was like a small-screen action movie, with plenty of car chases and gun fights. Dryer and Kramer had great chemistry, which especially came across in the episodes featuring personal stories for the two, such as the first season two-parter in which Hunter defies orders and goes to Mexico to look for a guy who had attacked McCall and hid behind his diplomatic immunity. It was an episode that allowed Hunter to display the depth of his friendship to McCall and showed just how much the characters cared for one another. I don't remember too much about the later years (in which Hunter went through two new partners), but I recall a lot of the earlier ones, with many standout episodes. I would definitely love to have this great series on DVD.moreless
  • “Works for me!” The day-to-day adventures of two hard-bitten L.A. cops.

    9.4
    Detective Sgts. Rick Hunter and Dee Dee McCall patrol the streets of L.A. It’s a tough job, but they never give up. Possessed of a witty edge and film noir sensibilities, this show had a wickedly clever mind, while never shying away from the rough side of the story. It was gritty and looked it. Bad neighborhoods looked bad and nasty people were nasty. Yet despite all the darkness around them, the heroes never gave in to temptation; they always stood up for the law and worked to protect people.



    Laden with film-style excitement, classic scenes from shootouts to chases, ‘Hunter’ dealt with genre themes but was never dull or routine. The writing put you in mind of a good potboiler and the acting was thoroughly believable. There are taglines I can recite to this day.



    In an era known for crime shows, this was one of the best. Worth watching now as ever.

  • all the good shows gone

    As I sit here typing this, I am thinking of all the great cop shows. Hunter, TJ Hooker, SWAT, Hill Street Blues, Cop Rocks, NYPD Blue, 3rd Watch, and I sit here and wonder. Why? Almost every good cop show isnt on anymore, and I just wish they would bring something back.
