Actually, it's not too "New York," it's too Chicago. In any case, it's neither Wyoming nor Boston. Visually, at least, Urich was a better Spenser for me.

A little too polished for me, but given the fact that Spenser is Parker's version of Marlowe ("I ask 'What would Marlowe do?' then have Spenser do that."), and given further that Cary Grant was Chandler's choice
(again, at least visually) for Marlowe, Baldwin seems like a reasonable choice.
