The Coolest TV Theme Evah !!!

Before he was The Sisko on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, actor Avery Brooks was the sidekick on ABC’s Spencer for Hire. And, when Spenser left the airwaves, the Hawk character left Boston for Washington DC where he became sort of a renaissance anti-hero. A Man Called Hawk had an impressive roster of guest stars (including Samuel L. Jackson and Wesley Snipes) and some of the best music on a procedural (including a solo by guest star Valerie Simpson). Unfortunately, the executives at ABC put the show up against Cosby and it was gone faster than an unarmed freighter in Jem H’Adar territory.

Check out the funky opener for a dearly remembered show:
