Top Ten Television Detectives

Rick Hunter (Hunter)


The quintessential tough guy action hero of the eighties, Rick Hunter (played by Fred Dryer) was what so many men wished they could be. Tough-talking, hard-hitting and heroic, Rick Hunter crashed cars, shot guns and caused things to explode every week. Not only was the show full of action, but it was also full of the bad guys getting what they deserved. In the real world a cop like Rick Hunter would have never made the force much less detective, but he was great television.
