Have you ever seen the film Dirty Harry? One person sure has: Alan Spencer, creator of Sledge Hammer!
This sitcom is meant as an over-the-top parody of that film. Spencer had been inspired by another television program growing up: Get Smart, which had revolutionized the way we look at the spy genre. So too did Spencer feel the need to revamp the ‘cop’ genre, adding to it a nihilistic attitude, and one of disregard for the law in order to carry out law enforcement. It looked at gratuitous violence and satirized it. Unfortunately, many viewers did not see the satire within the show and therefore did not enjoy mass appeal.
