Harry O The Complete First Season
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.
In his sophomore and, sadly, final season, Harry Orwell steps a little lighter but never stops searching for the truth. Or working to restore his boat, "The Answer." Continuing the shift in tone that began with the first season's mid-season shift from San Diego to Santa Monica, Harry O's titular lead sheds a bit of his worn down, world-weary style without losing one of the chief qualities that set show and role apart: true characterization.
