I only count the Stepfanie Kramer years anyway. I haven't seen any of them for so long though, I can't exactly remember particular episodes, but I liked them all. Maybe if it ever comes out on DVD...

reply

I don't know the name of the episode but my favorite one is where they're hunting a killer who rides a motorcycle. As I recall they don't show his face until the end. They just keep showing him riding his motorcycle while playing the Rolling Stones "Sympathy For The Devil" in the backround.

"Come on Bert..., Ernie, you know me! I'm George Bailey, you sang at my wedding!"

That's in THE SHOOTER...Its one of my fav. ep. in my fav. 18 Hunter episodes list! I loved the scene where the m/bikes chase with the soundtrack playing!..and of course in the opening sequence!...

reply

That episode is one of the few that sticks out in my mind and i do not know the name of the episode.

I haven't seen Hunter for so long that it's hard to remember which ones I like the best. Really, anything Fred and Stepfanie did together was good. They had a great rapport with each other. I saw Rape and Revenge again last night on TVLand and was so impressed by it. I think that crisis really showed what a bond of friendship Hunter and Dee Dee had.

That's why she called "Brass Cupcake"!LOL

I can't believe no one's mentioned "The Snow Queen." I think that one was the best ever - neon lights, gunfire, cocaine, Stepfanie Kramer singing, Hunter in a new wave club, Dennis Franz, Dennis Farina. Just bursting with good stuff.

reply

Weren't there an episode (might have even been a double) where they re-opened the legendary 1940's "Black Dahlia" murder case? Correct me if I'm wrong.

reply

Yes, that episode was "Black Dahlia" (4.13).

Thanks jquark

Mine was Case X (2.1). It still gives me chills thinking about Leo Rossi playing that sleezy character.

reply

One of the episodes that i remember was the one where there is a guy going around, posing as a cop and picking up young girls and murdering them. I believe it was the "Teen Dreams" episode. The killer really thought he was a cop and drove in an old unmarked police car. I remember when Hunter and McCall went to the guys apartment, he had all kinds of cop memorobilia all over the place.

I have two favorites!

1.The Shooter (1.11)-The music/action/humor and overall chemistry between Hunter and Mccall and Robert Dryer(The Bad Guy/Shooter) is classic! Does anybody know if Robert Dryer is Fred Dryer's Brother?---Beware the new DVD set has changed the original Sympathy for the Devil with some new junk! I hope someday another distributer will re-release it with the original music! This was not the only episode they did that to in the dvd set. The Greatest American Hero has also done this on it's dvd releases. What a shame.

2. Case X (2.1)-The scene with Mccall doing a photoshoot with Leo Rossi is simply amazing! Mccall never looked hotter!

I also agree with other threads that Hunter was the best in the first year, and after the second year it went down hill. I liked John Amos as the captain and I liked how they always rode around in a junk heep of a car. Also, there were always funny moments that were very important to the chemistry of the two leads that disappearred when Roy Huggins took over producing the show.

Robert Dryer's birth name is Robert Carpenter, so, no, he isn't Fred's brother. If anything, the show went downhill after Roy Huggins left.

I can't believe no one has mentioned the three parter "City Of Passion". (Eps. 4.6, 4.7, & 4.8) It has to be one of the greatest cop stories I've ever scene on TV.

I think Rasputin put it best when he said, "Man, those pastries gave me indigestion."

reply

City of Passion and City under Siege are my favorites by far.

Don't play Leap frog with a unicorn

reply

I agree that the three-part City of Passion is the best of Hunter. The writing is top-notch and the guest stars are truly spectacular.

Here's my top ten:

1. CITY OF PASSION (4.06-4.08)
2. FATAL OBSESSION (7.12-7.13)
3. HEIR OF NEGLECT (5.01)
4. SHILLELAGH (6.02)
5. THE LEGION (6.05-6.06)
6. THE FIFTH VICTIM (6.09)
7. FROM SAN FRANCISCO WITH LOVE (3.06)
8. CITY UNDER SEIGE (5.11-5.13)
9. NIGHT ON BALD MOUNTAIN (4.05)
10. STREETWISE (6.21-6.22)

reply

I've been rewatching my top ten on Hulu. I had to edit my earlier post and move 'Fatal Obsession' up. Plus, I had looked at 'The Legion' which I thought was outstanding...so I decided to add it.
