I haven't finished watching Season 2 but it's a fun walk down memory lane. Some of the episodes would work in a cop show today. Some of it's dated but that's half the fun! Enjoyable.

"I am a huge fan of this classic tv cop show of the 80's. Sgt. Rick Hunter was a tough, no-nonsense, type of cop that had the perfect partner in Dee Dee McCall. The chemistry between the two characters was great! During the second season, the show really begin to find its groove with some really great episodes. It would evolve into one of the most loved cop shows of its time. Some of my favorites from this season include: "Night of the Dragon," "Million Dollar Misunderstanding," "Rape & Revenge," "Fagin 1986," "Scrap Metal," & The Beautiful & the Dead." These episodes truly show the evolution of the series with the first three being more like the first season of the show focusing more on action, while the later three deal more with dramatic storytelling.
I own all of the previously released Anchor Bay sets and purchased the first Mill Creek set. The main thing that I am disappointed in is the lack of original music in these early season sets. I understand all that has been said about music costs and copyright laws, but it is still a shame that agreements could not have been reached for the fans even if the costs for the DVD's would have had to be more. As the show progressed, they used less mainstream music, so that will not be as much of an issue for the later seasons.
One thing of note about the second season Anchor Bay set is that the show's intro that is included is the exact same as the intro from season one. While it contains the same opening theme, the season two intro includes many new clips and credits. You would think that if we cannot have the original music from the episodes, we could at least have the correct opening sequence. I look forward to seeing this new Mill Creek set to see if the correct intros have been included. Anyway, Hunter Season 2 will still be a great buy for anyone who loves watching classic 80's tv. My hope is that Mill Creek will release all 7 seasons of the original series, the tv movies that were made in 1995 & 2002, as well as the 2003 revival series!"
A terrific series from the era when TV was fun to watch

"Hunter was not a great TV series but, compared to most of what's available now, it was terrific. Hunter, an honest but maverick cop from a criminal background, was adeptly played by former football star Fred Dryer (the only player in NFL history to score two safeties in one game). His partner Dee Dee McCall was played by beautiful and spunky Stepfanie Kramer. Together they broke every rule in the book but always got the bad guys, no matter how the odds were stacked against them. Hunter wasn't an accurate portrayal of police work, and it definitely wasn't politically correct, but it was a lot of fun. I'm glad that it's now available on DVD."
