** Which creates continuity errors since the announcement states that this season takes place five years before, where Hammer met his partner only one year previously. Further, the second season includes references to current events in 1987 (the year the second season was aired), NOT 1981 or 1982.

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In the first episode, "Under the Gun", Sledge is somewhat more competent, but he's also far more violent. For example, early in the episode, he captures a suspect by pulling out a bazooka and blowing up the entire building the suspect is holed up in.

* '80sHair: PlayedForLaughs in one episode in which Dori has got herself a new haircut, which turns out to be impractical, because it blocks her vision, forcing her to blow her hair off her face.

* LawfulStupid: '''Hammer'''
** Possibly a subversion, however, when you realize that Hammer has no qualms about ignoring laws against PoliceBrutality and excessive force...

** And (arguably) his mother, Armen Hammer.
* AxCrazy: Arguably Hammer himself, although it was often {{Bowdlerise}}d for comedic effect.
** Important to note is that he never ''actually'' killed anyone; the censors presumably wouldn't allow it.
*** Presumably he did at least kill the guy on top of the building that he imploded. And he did tell a reporter that he killed two thugs who robbed a grocery store (then proceeded to buy groceries immediately after).
