the classic Hammer
I used to watch this show when it aired in the 80's.It wasn't the regular Mike Hammer of the books but a tongue-in cheek version,the real Hammer had too much sex and violence for television. Stacy Keach is OK in the title role,manages to instill some drama when its needed and add some light hearted comedy the rest of the time. The plots are not far from standard 80's cop-fare,there's the typical supporting cast of cops and villains,Hammer also has a sexy secretary,and while on the case meets a whole bunch of beauties. I remember there was some criticism of the series about the girls,that there were too many of them, and in later episodes they cut down on the number of girls Hammer meets.I didn't see any point in this ,the show was not to be taken seriously by any stretch of the imagination. All in all not a bad Pr.eye series,one of the 80's series thats not available on DVD yet.
