    Definitely one of the best Matlock episodes. I love the show in general, but this episode was very special to me. It seemed to have more heart and substance. I didn't realize it at the time I viewed it, but it was one of the very last episodes filmed...and it did have the feel of being a season finale. Ben's outburst during the trial was moving, and his last look around the courtroom was powerful. This episode, more than any other, reminded me of some of the touching episodes of The Andy Griffith Show.
    It had plenty of heart and soul.
