SPENCER FOR HIRE (1985 – 1988)

Creator : John Wilder

Cast:  Robert UrichAvery BrooksRon McLarty

Mystery/suspense series based on Robert Parker’s “Spenser” novels. Spenser, a private investigator living in Boston, gets involved in a new murder mystery each episode. Using his years of experience, his natural talents for observation and reasoning, and the occasional bit of help from his friend Hawk, Spenser never fails to crack the case.
Here is a smart series that lasted 3 years only Why I do not know. During season one, Spenser lived in an abandoned firehouse just off Charles Street, but filming there proved difficult and the BFD reclaimed the site at the end of the season. For seasons two and three, Spenser lived on the top floor of an old Charlestown apartment, at the base of Bunker Hill, the interiors of which were shot at the FilmWorks Studios in Brighton, Mass. Some episodes, especially within season 1, had strong, intriguing plot twists that kept my interest. Give a try to this one. Enjoy.
