      A Man Called Hawk: Poison, which originally aired on television in March 1989, focused on the drug war. Unfortunately, what it shows is that we really haven’t come far at all. In fact, we’ve gone nowhere. That’s what the program is evidence of because we’re still fighting the same issues today.


      good and the bad of this episode follow:

      –The scene with Hawk and Harker in Harker’s office is just so over the top and cliche, with Hawk acting so flippant. It just makes me groan. The Hawk character turns me off, even though he’s supposed to be a good guy.

        Again, there’s a lot of violence, and this isn’t my type of show.
