March 11, 1973 to April 29, 1976
Created by Howard Rodman
The series follows the life and times of private investigator Harry Orwell, a former police officer forced into retirement by a bullet lodged near his spine. It benefited considerably from David Janssen's extremely downbeat and weary portrayal of the title character, and an unconventional voice-over narration that told not what was going on in the story but how Harry viewed the world.
