This was great TV-series, and I really loved the Mustang. Thanks for the pictures, stronghold!

This was Robert Urich's second popular detective series. His first was "Vega$", and he played private detective "Dan Tanna." Ironically even though both "Vega$" and "Spenser: For Hire" were very popular with viewers, they both only lasted 3 seasons. This was the show I watched growing up that made me want a classic Mustang someday! I mowed lawns and saved like crazy...and my freshman year of high school I finally got one! It wasn't dark green like Spenser's (but that was fine with me, never liked the color of Spenser's Mustang) but a white 1966 Mustang! It wasn't a fastback like Spenser's either, but for a 15 year old that was probably okay too. ;)

For the second season of the show, for some stupid reason they decided to replace Spenser's classic Mustang with a brand new ("ugly" :D ) 1986 Mustang. Barbara Stock who played his girlfriend "Susan Silverman" was also replaced with ("ugly" :D ) Carolyn McCormick who played somewhat of a female interest "Asst. D.A. Rita Fiori." Ratings went down and everyone was ticked with the new changes. For the third, and unfortunately, the last season Rita was gone (thank goodness :p ) and so was the new Mustang! Spenser got back his classic 66 and "Susan" (Barbara Stock) came back! Ratings went back up and everyone was happy. It was assumed there would be a fourth season, but for some unknown reason the show was cancelled at the end of the third season?? Bad decision ABC!!! :mad:

Actress Barbara Stock was beatiful and awesome as "Susan Silverman." Unfortunately, she did not reprise her role in the reunion movies (1993-1995). Two different actresses (who were not as pretty) portrayed the role of "Susan." Also, once again Spenser's classic 66 Mustang was gone in the reunion movies and he drove a stupid butt-ugly :/ Ford Probe! Probes proved to be one of the "stupidest" and poorly assembled cars Ford had put out in years. What ever happened to Barbara Stock? And, does anyone know whatever became of the 1966 Mustang Robert Urich drove in "Spenser?"

Avery Brooks played a very excentric character to say the least but if you see his Star Trek convention apereances he may be really insane :o

A few months ago, the whole series (except the pilot ep) was available on IMDB TV/Amazon Prime. I saved them all and was going to eventually add them. So there is no reason to add crappy YouTube videos captures copied from faded, fuzzy VHS tapes, like the recently added Eps 1.03 & 1.08. The other caps from Season 1 look like they were copied from the videos from IMDB-TV.

so replace those 2 episode caps only, they re only a few vehicles

and the Camaro needs an update as was reused with a larger role

when originally aired on ABC this show was against HUNTER (another of Night cub's portofolio) on NBC and Magnum PI on CBS and lost big time in the ratings :o

Hunter was on Saturday for most of its run.

Looks like the first season, Spenser was on Fridays at 10, against Miami Vice and Falcon Crest, then moved to Tuesdays at 10, against The Equalizer and Stingray.

Season 2 moved to Saturdays at 10 (back when networks aired fresh programs on Saturdays!), against Hunter and the Twilight Zone.

The final season was moved (again) to Sundays at 8 in the fall, against Murder She Wrote and Family Ties/My Two Dads; then back to Saturdays at 10, back against Hunter and West 57th. So it had 5 different time slots in 3 seasons.

Too many time changes and doing all filming in Boston does not lead to longevity.

in terms of quality I can safely say

S1 >>>> S2 >>>>>>> S3

S3 had a slashed buget as the car chases and exterior location shooting had a visible decline and they brought back Barbara Stock the love interest from season 1 but it just didn't feel the same anymore
