TJ Hooker: Legend

I’m lucky(?) enough to have access to the channel Quest, which shows some truly awful TV, such as this. However, much to my delight, it also shows TJ Hooker, a splendidly silly cop programme from the 1980s stariring William Shatner, which re-established itself in my affection some years ago when I caught the occasional episode on Channel 5. It is mostly remembered now I would say for having an extremely young Heather Locklear in it, and thus to act as a comparison for how she looks now, nearly 3 decades and much cosmetic surgery later. The Guardian has today given TJ Hooker its due, and fair play to it for doing so.

I realise that I ought to have done better for my first post for over a month, but there you go.

    The Shat is quite a character – I’ve been reading one of his multiple autobiographies. Not to mention, The Transformed Man was a great album.

    He is an astounding individual. I have to admit that I have neither read his books nor heard the albums, although I have his Common People on Gerry Anderson. Madness but great.
