Editorial Reviews

Created by acclaimed detective-noir author Mickey Spillane, private eye Mike Hammer (Stacy Keach) is a hard-boiled, two-fisted detective who mixes it up with tough guys on a mission, clean and dirty cops on the beat and drop-dead gorgeous dames with plenty of attitude. A steamy throwback to the classic film noir thrillers of the 50's. Mike Hammer is one tough cookie.

This is the 1990s Mike Hammer Private Eye series which takes place in Los Angeles and has Shannon Whirry as Velda. It's a good series but is not the gritty, womanizing and violent Mike Hammer that we came to know and love from the 1980s "Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer" and "The New Mike Hammer"; neither of which to my knowledge has currently has seen the light of day in a DVD boxed set (although several of the tv movies from the same decade are available).

I vaguely remembered watching some of these shows as a kid. I enjoy watching TV with my 12 year old son in the evenings, however everything tends to be very violent or have very sexual themes. I bought this series hoping it would have enough intrigue to catch his interest but not too much senseless violence or intense adult themes. I was also hoping to avoid some of the explicit sexual scenes and inuendo today's modern prime time television has.
Mike Hammer, Private Eye - The Complete Series

The series is fun and has caught my son's attention. There is slightly more violence than I would like, and the main character loves to be considered a ladie's man. I would rate this series a PG-13 by todays standards.

Take this series for what it is. Mike Hammer is an old school "throwback" detective. The acting and the stories are obviously from the early 90's. If you like these old prime time detective shows, you can not go wrong for the price!

It is cheap entertainment and is something my 12 year old son and I enjoy watching together.

This boxed set contains all 26 episodes of the 1997 "Mike Hammer - Private Eye" series. Stacy Keach is excellent as Mike Hammer and I like the added cast members Shane Conrad as Nick and Shannon Whirry is VERY easy to watch. There is abundant eye-candy with pretty and shapely young women in every episode. Also "the Face" the elusive attractive "face in the crowd" played by Rebbeca Chaney (the grand-niece of Actor legend Lon Chaney). Then there is Kent Williams as the ADA you love to hate. These are nicely packaged on four DVDs in separate cases. Highly recommended!!

Stacey Keach is the ultimate Mike Hammer, there will never be another.
The audio and video of these disks is excellent.
I remember the 80's shows as being better than this series.
But, those are memories and this is real.
These shows are good, there is humor.
If you ever tried to quit smoking, you should get a lot of laughs from
A New Leaf, for example.
If you're addicted like me dont hold your breath waiting for the 80's
series to become available on dvd.

The product arrived on time and in new condition. We enjoyed watching this series on TV in the 80's and are really happy to have this set. The stories are interesting because they are in narrative style and are not at the violent level of alot of TV series today.

First, I'll say I do enjoy this series. However, the sound, the video quality, the music and Velda were better in the 1980s. Lindsay Bloom is the quintessential Velda. She is what I think of when I think of Velda. Tanya Roberts is close, but just doesn't have the personality and personal characteristics that make Lindsay Bloom so adorable. She isn't just sex, she is personality, cuteness, behaviorally and things I just can't put words to. There is just some feeling I get watching the 1980s series that I don't feel with the 1990s series. It can't be explained, except that the 1990s being filmed in CA didn't help. It lost the feeling of the New York nights and the streets and people, the places and feeling of New York. The better music in the 1980s series helped a lot, too. We need to bombard CBS with letters and email asking them to make the 1980s series available on DVD.

Since I wrote the above I've watched more of the 1990s series and I've begun to count the flaws, not in any particular order:
1. Velda was brunette, not blonde.
2. Mike Hammer was in the army, not the USMC, as stated in one episode.
3. Why did they change Lawrence Barrington to Barry Lawrence using the same actor?
4. Hammer still calls his .45 "Betsy", but in one episode it is chromed or SS, while in most other episodes it is blued. So, does he call two different guns "Betsy"?

There are more, I just can't think of them now.

I've been watching "Peter Gunn" each night before I watch Hammer. It is amazing how Peter Gunn set the mold for detective shows--the music, the city sites, the bar, etc.

Stacy Keach plays Mike Hammer. When he walks down the street he is
pursued by young beautiful women despite his rumpled clothing and out-of-shape
middle age appearance. He's the poor man's James Bond.

Not the series I would buy
Thanks for the heads-up. This 1997 re-launch is certainly better than nothing and it's taken long enough for *this* one to be released, but I fully agree it would be great if they would release the definitive 1980s original series. For the life of me I can't see why they haven't given the regard... Read More
