Flipping through the channels, I see what I believed to be a movie. I was automatically drawn in, yet slightly confused. When I found out it was a TV show, I was marveled because it had many movie qualities which can both help or hurt the show.
Matlock is a pretty intersting show. The concept about an older man taking on cases and appealing in courts, is definitely a spin on the law and crime regime that currently is dominating television. Andy Griffith does a terrific job playing the title, character Matlock, and especially shines in his interrogations and court room scenes, his action scenes are not as fantastic though, which could be expected. The thing with Matlock though, is that it's episode is either fantastic or so-so. This does not lie on Matlock, but instead lies on his supporting cast and guest stars. If the show ever comes on, I'll be sure to check it out, but I wouldn't be sure if I'd watch the entire program.
