    • Still good!

      9.5
      I have just bought season 1&2 on DVD. I really loved the show when it was on and I was surprised how good I still found the show. Some of the fighting scenes and gunfights seem dated but the dialogue and the pace it actually good. Robert Urich is outstanding in this role, and so is Avery Brooks. The show has good storylines and some humor too. It is funny too see the old cars and the fact they use landline-telephones. So many shows are being remade. Spenser would be a really good show to remake.moreless

      Robert B. Parker is the author of the series which is a great specimen of pulp fiction. There are nearly 40 Spenser novels. He also wrote the Jesse Stone series which shares cross over characters with Spenser.

      I think Spenser for Hire is the best classic show I've ever watched in my entire life. I do love watching this TV show during our era, it really ended up being an absolutely great show. Robert Urich played magnificently with his role as Spenser and. Avery Brooks who played as Hawk was really good in acting. . I have watched this series since the beginning because I really love the whole story. I have been looking from so many online DVD shops because I want to watch this show again. Currently, it's really hard to trust an online shopping company nowadays so I made some deep research with some of the sites selling this TV show. I saw this being sold at idvdshop dot com / Spenser_For_Hire dot html and placed my order. The DVDs were delivered so fast. Great quality and the episodes are all there. Absolutely wonderful set. I'm so happy coz I can watch this series all over again!moreless
