A few years after ''Spenser: For Hire'' was cancelled by ABC, the Lifetime cable network (which was airing reruns at the time) commissioned four TV-movies based on original Robert B. Parker novels, and reuniting Robert Urich and Avery Brooks as Spenser and Hawk. All four of the movies are excellent adaptations of Parker's novels, and the interaction between co-stars Urich and Brooks -- part of what made the TV show so great -- is pitch perfect. Sadly, Urich's battle with cancer (and subsequent death several years later) meant recasting the role when A&E began making Spenser movies again. Still, hopefully the TV series will make it to DVD someday.
