Gallery: The 50 Hottest Female Cops On TV Shows
Call them crime dramas, private investigator shows, police shows or any other name you can think of. Regardless, the 80s were full of them, and many were just incredible to watch! There were more heroes in this genre then any other, as well as some epic criminals and bad guys. Even science fiction, with all its hype in the 80s, had a hard time competing with these cops and private investigators.
Everyone wanted to solve crimes, and they were all good at it! This was a fabulous series that ran for 5 seasons and episodes! Full of cute boys and featuring some quality storytelling, the show was a joy to watch. The catchy tune at the beginning caught your attention and the cast held it for the rest of the show. Even Richard Grieco made it into the show for 18 episodes, spawning his own spin-off TV series named Booker after the character he played in 21 Jump Street.
Alas, this series only ran for 22 episodes in one season. The story revolved around the crime solving of an ex-cop who had problems with authority. Most of the crimes were related to his friends instead of his employer, which resulted in a fun variety of plot lines.
This edgy detective show ran for a whopping 7 seasons and episodes. Though the show didn't grab my attention at first, the later seasons drew me in deeper and deeper. Never mind having to make it in a male dominated profession, these two ladies had full lives outside of the job as well. Their home lives added a human element that drew a large audience to watch the show. Because one was a single career officer and the other a married mother, the two characters dealt with a variety of everyday problems at home.
The chemistry between these two actresses won my family over as dedicated fans and viewers, and I hope it will do the same for you. Charlie's Angels , a unique crime drama for the period, focused on a team of female detectives funded by a mysterious benefactor.
The benefactor, known only as Charlie, was voiced by the distinguished John Forsythe. This series ran for 5 seasons with a respectable episodes.
The team of three angels changed periodically. Of course, let's not forget David Doyle as Bosley. The series packed humor and action into a thrilling drama filled with undercover shenanigans. This show focused on two California highway patrol officers. The series ran for 6 seasons with episodes. Although real life California patrol officers never rode in pairs, the chemistry between the two main actors, Larry Wilcox and Erick Estrada playing officers Jonathan Baker and Francis "Ponch" Poncherello , prompted the show's producers to change the rules in the name of good television.
The series started off as more of a comedy, piling on slapstick humor and ridiculous events, but eventually changed to a more serious format which generated a strong viewer following. Upon retiring, Judge Hardcastle realized that criminals had escaped on legal technicalities. The judge made a deal with McCormick, who was facing a long prison sentence, and in return for his help promised to help McCormick find his best friend's murderer.
One of the best parts of the show was the prototype sports car driven by McCormick, the Coyote X. The Harts were an extremely wealthy couple who worked as detectives for the sheer thrill. Honestly, there is not much more I can say about this show. There was a lot of cheese, but also a lot of fun. More of a police drama than a detective show, this series ran for 7 seasons and episodes.
It focused on a police precinct in some American city, which I do not believe was ever named. It was highly acclaimed and earned several Emmy awards, breaking ground especially in its use of casual and colloquial dialogue and focus on characters at the bottom of the social ladder, giving it a gritty, almost documentary feel. Another police drama, this one was based on the character of Sgt.
Rick Hunter Fred Dryer and Sgt. It ran for 7 seasons and episodes. Originally thought of as TV's version of Dirty Harry, the series calmed down its antics in order to increase ratings, but at the end of the day, Hunter and McCall almost always resolved situations by shooting the criminals dead. This series ran for 5 seasons and episodes. It centered around Prosecutor J.
With this series, viewers could see both sides of the investigative process, from the in court drama to all the investigative action outside. The series ran for an incredible 8 seasons and episodes. Magnum lived in the guest house of a millionaire's beach-front estate known as "The Robin's Nest. If you've never seen this series, I highly suggest you check it out. It is worth the viewing time. Matlock ran for 9 seasons and episodes as a legal drama, but the show encompassed far more than a typical legal show.
Ben Matlock, played by Andy Griffith, found a way to get himself in trouble both inside and outside of the courtroom. Matlock's character, an old-fashioned defense attorney, studied at Harvard and practiced law in Atlanta, Georgia. His trade marks were visiting crime scenes and investigating for overlooked evidence, particularly in murder cases. The show was a lot of fun and a big proponent of the brainy underdog, proving that one does not need might in order to be continually victorious.
Apparently being rich was not enough for many people in the 80s, since they had to resort to investigating crimes and murders to pass the time. His assistant, C. My favorite part of the show was the Apple II computer, affectionately named Baby, which happened to have information on every single person on the planet. This show ran for 5 seasons and a measly 66 episodes.
I really wish they had made more, since it was a lot of fun to watch, especially with Bruce Willis' character driving Cybill Shepherd's character mad! That's right, Moonlighting starred hunky action man Bruce Willis with sultry Cybil Shepherd, creating a dynamic chemistry that few shows have ever rivaled. Angela Lansbury starred as detective and mystery writer Jessica Fletcher. This series ran for an unbelievable 12 seasons, episodes and even 4 TV movies!
A retired English teacher turned writer, Jessica had a knack for having murders happen all around her. Even though she lived in a quiet little town named Cabot Cove in Maine, the murders kept coming.
The show was mischievous and downright fun. I highly suggest everyone take the time to watch a few episodes. Ohara, an unconventional cop who preferred to solve crimes without a gun or a partner.
This was the first television series to have a Japanese-American actor in a lead role. It only ran for 2 seasons and 30 episodes, but is what I consider a diamond in the rough. Check it out! This series began in the 70s, but carried over into the 80s, so I decided to include it.
It ran for 8 seasons and episodes, starring Jack Klugman in the lead role as Quincy. Focusing on crime solving from the point of view of a medical examiner, Quincy ME was a precursor to the now common C. Using deduction, asking the tough questions and investigating the evidence, Quincy regularly comes into conflict with his boss and police officers, yet always manages to solve the crimes.
After creating a fictitious male boss in order to bring business into her detective agency, Laura accepts a new partner to play the part and take on the persona of Remington Steele.
Remington Steele ran for 5 seasons and 94 episodes. The show was fun, flirtatious and full of mystery. I loved it! This series ran for 3 seasons with 56 episodes. They quickly realized that technology was a big part of detective work and recruited Murray Boz Bozinsky Thom Bray , another friend they met in the army, as their resident computer genius. The premise of Scarecrow and Mrs.
King was simple. King Kate Jackson was an ordinary divorced mom who inadvertently got mixed up with a spy by the codename of Scarecrow Bruce Boxleitner , and for 4 seasons and 88 episodes the pair were simply a delight to watch in action. I mean, the Tron and one of the Charlie's Angels was a winning combination from the start! My favorite part of the show was the growing emotional tension between the two, which eventually led to Do you really think I'm going to tell you?
Watch the show! Lots of fun, plenty of action and good undercover work. They were quirky, with endless conflicts between them, yet I couldn't stop watching. Once again I can hear the critics! Was this show primarily a comedy? I just felt the need to add it for a feeling of completeness. It ran for 2 seasons and 41 episodes of crime solving hijinks, starring David Rasche as Inspector Sledge Hammer. Starring the handsome Robert Urich as Spencer and Avery Brooks as his associate and muscle Hawk, this series ran for 3 seasons, 66 episodes and 4 TV movies.
I can't say enough good things about Robert Urich. The man was simply a fantastic actor. The series ran for 2 seasons and 24 episodes. Ray helped those in trouble and worked through advertisements in the newspaper. The advertisements were coded so that only people who learned about Ray by word of mouth could understood their true meaning and contact him for help.
Best of the Best Cop Shows
Jeffrey A. Beyond Bombshells analyzes the cultural importance of strong women in a variety of current media forms. Action heroines are now more popular in movies, comic books, television, and literature than they have ever been.

An FBI agent is forced to work with an institutionalized scientist and his son in order to rationalize a brewing storm of unexplained phenomena. The third and fourth seasons take place in dystopian futures. A former police officer returns to the force after having been wrongly imprisoned for years.

I loved reading this book. As an overview of the shows therein contained, this book worked. It drew excellent connections between shows especially when noting actors and crew who spanned several shows, or who went on to other From cops who are paragons of virtue, to cops who are as bad as the bad guys They enter our living rooms and tell us tall tales about the social contract that exists between the citizen and the police. Love them or loathe them--according to the ratings, we love them--they serve a function. They've entertained, informed and sometimes infuriated audiences for more than 60 years. It's time to take another look at the "perps," the "vics" and the boys and girls in blue, and ask how their representation intersects with questions of class, gender, sexuality, and "race. What is their relation to genre and televisuality? And why is it that when a TV cop gives a witness his card and says, "call me," that witness always ends up on a slab?

This fall another cyclical shift seems to be hitting its peak, this one in crime dramas. The Harts, played by Stephanie Powers and Robert Wagner, were a rich married couple who solved crimes for a hobby. He was a charming con man, Stephanie Zimbalist was his more businesslike partner.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: MY NEW FEMALE PARTNER IS A BEAST!
Two heads are much better than one when it comes to untangling television's most complex criminal activity - especially when there's a dash of chemistry going on as well. Here are four of our favourite detective duos Duffel-coated, magic-making super-sleuth Jonathan Creek has had a few different partners over the years, but most fans will probably agree that the Jonathan and Maddy team-up is the most iconic. And with good reason: the contrast between the shuffling, nerdy genius and the gobby, pushy, incredulous journalist is pure bliss to watch, and a nicely down-to-earth counterbalance to the warped and impossible crimes they investigate. True, Maddy can be rather Calling him a "spineless cretin" is about as close as she gets to paying him a compliment.

Flashes of eye contact in the interview room. Flirty smiles in the fingerprint lab. Lingering glances over rotting, bullet-ridden corpses. Has your favourite duo made the list? The Mentalist simply sizzles with sexual chemistry.
The police drama has been one of the longest running and most popular genres in American television. In TV Cops, Jonathan Nichols-Pethick argues that, perhaps more than any other genre, the police series in all its manifestations—from Hill Street Blues to Miami Vice to The Wire—embodies the full range of the cultural dynamics of television. Exploring the textual, industrial, and social contexts of police shows on American television, this book demonstrates how polices drama play a vital role in the way we understand and engage issues of social order that most of us otherwise experience only in such abstractions as laws and crime statistics. And given the current diffusion and popularity of the form, we might ask a number of questions that deserve serious critical attention: Under what circumstances have stories about the police proliferated in popular culture? What function do these stories serve for both the television industry and its audiences?
Crime-solving Chemistry: our top 10 sleuthing couples
Police TV series, a fixture of the small screen since its inception, have morphed from binary tales of cops and robbers to challenging and morally nebulous psychodramas. While each generation favours the ones it grew up with, Graeme Ross reckons he has nailed down the best of all time. Over episodes, the series followed Ironside and his team in his role as consultant to the Police Department as they sorted out the bad guys of the City by the Bay. Hannah gives the role his best but was probably too young and lacked the cynical gravitas that Stott gave to Rebus.
