Watch Spenser: For Hire
- 3 Seasons
Based on the novels by Robert Parker, and starring Robert Urich, Spenser For hire is a show about a private detective who is instrumental in helping the police solve murders on a consistent basis. Although the police Lieutenant doesn't like him very much, they get along well enough to make sure the murder cases are closed and the bad guys are brought to justice. Being an ex-boxer, Spenser works out in an old gym in his free time to stay in shape. This is where he meets Hawk, (played by Avery Brooks), who is a street thug working for the highest bidder. Hawk helps Spenser out from time-to-time because he seems to be able to gather information on the streets when no one else can. Spenser and the police Sergeant, don't get along but they do have a mutual respect for each because Spenser was a cop himself until he left the force.
