  • Great start!

    This show captured my heart from the start! Great acting by Richard Dysart, Cynthia Harris, Alan Rachins and Corbin Bernsen. Many lines from this pilot became classics:"If he's dead I have tips on his office" to name one. I love the McKenzie-party! And what a funural! I just have one more thing to say: GEORGINA/GEORGE!
