Harry-O: Season 1
Series David Janssen of "The Fugitive" returned a decade later in this beloved cult fave, playing a shot cop turned world-weary private eye, working from his beach house, taking the bus and confiding to us in finely jaded voice-over narration. Janssen's Harry Orwell debuted in 1974 a day before James Garner's "The Rockford Files," which echoes its crime-beat cynicism. Halfway though this season, "Harry O" changed its setting (from San Diego to Los Angeles), supporting cast (added: a pre-"Charlie's Angels" Farrah Fawcett) and even its tone, to a darker type of tube noir.
Extras First TV-movie pilot (of two), 1973's "Such Dust as Dreams Are Made On."
