Sledge Hammer

Meet Inspector Sledge Hammer, a new kind of hero who makes Rambo look like Pee Wee Herman. Sledge is the trigger-happy lawman whose hatred of criminal scum and yogurt eatin' creeps was matched only by his love of excessive force and a .44 Magnum. Over the next two seasons, this hilariously deranged lampoon of Dirty Harry and plenty of other targets became one of the most notorious series in television history and launched a rabid cult of fans that grows to this day.
