Spenser's back!

Post by Alien Redrum »

Holy shit, I just stumbled across this today. Apparently Netflix made a movie about Spenser (of Robert B. Parker fame, or of Spenser for Hire fame, depending on how you knew him).

This looks great.

That looks interesting. So, this is the same Spenser of Spenser for Hire? I honestly didn't know they were a book series.

Damn SNL... When ever I see Marky Mark I need to hear him say, 'Say hello to your mother for me'. But he never does. He never ever does.

It is and it was! Parker stopped writing them though, but got a ghost writer (not unlike Patterson). This one was written by Ace Atkins whom I've heard a great amount of things about. This isn't a Johnny Come Lately, he has his own series of books about a dude name Quinn Colson (I just bought the first book due to the things I've read about him).

Oh. Robert Parker died 10 years ago. That's why there are other people writing Spenser. :lol:

He should've sold his soul like Don Pendleton so that he could write 4 books a month and live forever.

I may have to check out the books.

I've read a few and dug them. TBH, it's not my 'go to' PI book, but they are still fun.

I had no idea they were a book series. Robert Urich was just so damn dreamy.

FYI, the TV series is streaming on Prime w/ ads. Fucking IMDB TV has some good shit. The ads aren't horrible, either.
