It's the first thing I every remember seeing on TV.
12 October 1998 | by (Kenansville NC) – See all my reviews

"Boston Blackie" was the first and the best TV show I have ever seen and I have seen a lot. I was about 7 years old and will never forget "Boston Blackie". I could not take my eyes off him. He was so cool and sure of himself. I would love to see the show put on video. Its been 43 years since I've seen my Hero in action.
