Summary of "Spenser: The Movie Collection - Spencer is on DVD":
Not a bad start for Ryko in the TV-DVD genre. They were able to secure a title with some recognition, and they did a decent job. I would have loved to see some interviews on the set, but I understand those aren't always feasible. I think their packaging could be improved upon; it's bulky when it doesn't need to be. Keep cases have been replaced by the slim cases, which take up half the room, and would have been perfect for the set. The artwork on the cases is consistent, but Susan Silverman is played by a different actress for two of the movies. Minor complaints I know, but they're still things that should be brought up.

Robert Urich had a number of television roles in his career, but I'll always remember him as "Spenser." (read entire review)
