You have obviously never read a Spenser novel, if you had you would not say that Joe Mantegna was a good Spenser, and the guys who played Hawk were useless compared to Avery Brooks. Ernie Hudson as Hawk, come on, what a joke. He's a great actor, but he's no Hawk. Anyone who has ever read a Spenser novel will agree Robert Urich WAS Spenser, and Joe Mantegna isn't.

Saying that the A&E Spenser is better than the Urich Spenser is just nuts, and shows no taste at all. I agree with the second guy who said that it was an asinine comment, there was only one good Spenser, and he died a few years ago, it was a sad day for all Spenser fans, no matter what anyone says Spenser on TV died with Robert Urich.
