great film noir TV show
27 August 1999 | by crewcut6See all my reviews

Mike Hammer is the ideal private eye. He has fists of steel, a good shot, and a hot girlfriend/secretary named Velda. And Stacy Keach is the ideal Mike Hammer. He's got the right buffness and attitude to pull of a cool role like Hammer. I was introduced to this show by my grandmother, and I immediatelly enjoyed it. I was pretty upset when A&E cancelled early last year, and I think I'll complain to them! "Mike Hammer" is a great show to test your skills of logic to solve the case along with Hammer, and the action and dialogue will add up to your satisfaction as well.
