S03E04 - The Cheerleader Murder

On this episode of Hooked On T.J. Hooker we dig into The Cheerleader Murder! Hey, why's it called this when the subject is teen porn? This is a doozy of an episode that really highlights the extremities of the show: fun light-hearted banter and the brutality of a society that preys on young people. Hooker's past is illuminated slightly further with the friendship he has with an adult film actress. Romano's in a sling and Corrigan takes a back seat.

S03E03 - Chinatown

T.J. Hooker is back and opening up about his T.J. Past and former beat in Chinatown. Did Hooker father another child we didn't previously know about? It sure as hell sounds like it! Why is Hooker so vicious in his besting of Chow Duc KHAAAAAAN!? Yes, we had a Khan in Star Trek and we now have a Khan in T.J. Hooker. This is a problematic episode to put it lightly. T.J. lives it up in the Safari Inn. Plus Ben auditions for community theater!

S03E02 - Carnal Express

On this edition of Hooked on T.J. Hooker we talk about the delightfully off the rails episode, Carnal Express! The episode that spawned the idea of a podcast back when it was just a twinkle in Eric's eye. It's about "white slavery" something we now might call human trafficking. Stacy goes undercover as a dancer to try to be abducted to help out with the case. T.J. has new neighbors that Romano finds arousing, but when isn't that creep aroused? A truly terrifying hour of television that can never be made today. Smoke that swamp weed and tune in.

S03E01 - The Return

On the SEASON THREE premiere, Hooker is at a crossroads. His wife, Fran and the kids, have been mysteriously whisked away to Oregon. T.J. Divorcee is now fully established to live in a fringe area: The Safari Inn! Dreams haunt him in this motel which make us wonder, what would it be like if Hooker was transformed into some kind of Freddy Krueger-like creature? The dreams were of Johnny, his partner who was shot to death by a ONE HANDED MAN prior to the series start, and now Hooker must become his avenging angel. We get glimpses of the Hooker past wherein he's a narc detective that "wore fresh clothes and had white rolls." This is a big episode on the T.J. Mythos and re-establishes the show to focus on the new partners: TJ & Romano, Stacy & Corrigan.
