Why waste time with ”the justice system” when you can just shoot the perp dead and watch his lifeless body fall off a roof into the alley below? Every day in the life of L.A. homicide detectives Rick Hunter and Dee Dee McCall is different, yet somehow they’re all the same: heinous crime, rule-breaking investigation, an undercover McCall dressed like a hooker, wisecrack, fistfight, car chase, blammo! Hunter sucks so bad it rules.

EXTRAS Breezy interviews with exec producer Stephen J. Cannell and Stefanie Kramer — hey, where’s Fred Dryer? — but the real prize is seeing future award-winning actors like Dennis Franz, Frances McDormand, and Brian Dennehy back in their glossy-head-shot days. To quote the man himself: Works fer me.
