Matlock

Show Summary

Andy Griffith is back, playing widower Benjamin Leighton Matlock, a popular, folksy attorney who is worth all of his $100,000 per case fee. He has the knack of solving and winning most of his cases. In addition to proving his client's innocence, he usually unmasks the murderer at the end of each episode (similar to Perry Mason).
.
Ben wears his signature light gray suit and drives three generations of his Ford Crown Victoria. He owns his law firm, where he shares his cases with his partners - his associates, daughter Charlene and investigator Tyler Hudson. In Season 2, Charlene leaves and is replaced by Michelle Thomas, a young, attractive associate who had tried her hand at baseball after majoring in Physical Education. She met Ben on his trip to England. Feisty, redheaded A.D.A. Julie March, who left Nebraska to work for the D.A.'s office appears once in Season 1, intermittently in Season 2 and joins the cast full time for Seasons 3-6. Tyler Hudson leaves the cast at the start of Season 4 and is replaced by Conrad McMasters, a former sheriff's deputy Ben hires to be his investigator.
.
Michelle and Conrad both leave at the end Season 6 and are replaced by Ben's older daughter, Leanne MacIntyre, and recent law school graduate, Cliff Lewis, son of Ben's nemesis Billy Lewis. Investigator Jerri Stone joins the team for Season 9, replacing Leanne.
.
Broadcast History:
Seasons 1-6 on NBC: September 1986 - May 1992
Seasons 1-5 on Tuesdays and Season 6 on Fridays
Seasons 7-9 on ABC: November 1992 - May 1995 on Thursdays.

    I enjoy the TV show Matlock. I'll admit, I only watched it because the Simpsons made fun of it a lot. But this show is a very good drama, the type of which you can't find on TV nowadays. I don't like how they would regularly go without the main characters in a lot of the episodes, but it's simplicity is something missed today. If you are a fan of good mystery dramas, you'll probably like Matlock. There is almost never recurring storylines to keep track of (except for the great two part episodes), but if you have free time to watch it and it is on a channel you can get, I suggest watching it for a good time.moreless
