A more modern (the series started in 1976 and new episodes are still being written today) take on the 40s/50s PrivateDetective.
!!This series features examples of:
* InspectorLestrade: There are several policemen Harry occasionally works with that qualify, such as Lou Butterfield who in one episode arrested him for a crime that Harry himself reported without even bothering to check [[spoiler: if the victim was dead.]]
* KnightInSourArmor: Harry, on occasion.
* PluckyOfficeGirl: Murphy.
* SassySecretary: Murphy.
* SickbedSlaying: In ''The Judge From Whiskey Dick'' [[spoiler: Harry is almost killed with a shotgun blast]], and then when he's in the hospital the murderer slips in and tries to overdose him on horse tranquilizers.
* TrappedByGamblingDebts: In the first episode, Harry owes a gambling debt to a mob boss and is sent to kill a guy to pay it back.
