Harry O - The Complete First Season DVD Review



Synopsis: Harry Orwell is a decidedly different detective. And Harry O is decidedly different TV show. Forced off the force thanks to a bullet lodged near his spine, former police detective Harry Orwell gets by on his disability pension and the occasional private detecting gig (“100 bucks a day. Plus expenses”). No flashy car for the downtrodden Harry – he’s as apt to get around town on bus as he is on foot. But he’s as savvy as he is sophisticated, and though he might have to avoid the slugfests, he can crack any case. Even if it sometimes breaks his heart. Harry O features an actor at the top of his game, playing a character complex enough to contain his talents. This Six-Disc, 22-Episode Collection features the entire first season, co-starring Henry Darrow and Anthony Zerbe. Special guests include Stefanie Powers, Linda Evans, Martin Sheen, and Cab Calloway. Special Bonus: Contains the Original Pilot – Such Dust as Dreams Are Made On.

Review: Harry-O is a vintage crime drama that aired between 1974-76 starring David Janssen.  The ABC show ran for two seasons...this DVD release collects the complete first season.   Harry-O is a throwback show that was a bit before my time and I had never caught it on re-runs, as I did so many other 70s action shows.  This one was a lot of fun..it kinda reminded me of a cross between the Rockford files and Starsky and Hutch.  The list of guest stars was great, including Farrah Fawcett and Martin Sheen! 

I definately enjoyed the show and I can't wait to see the second season.  Hopefully, the Warner Archive will release it within the next year.
