  • There's a Reason Why Andy Griffith was a TV Legend!

    9.0
    Matlock gets the golden opportunity to defend his all-time favorite country music artist accused of a hit and rum murder of his wife's sister, but comes to realize that he an alcoholic and that he's extremely hard to deal with. Andy Griffith gives one of the strongest performances I've watched on this show as he wants to prove the singer innocent but it's hard to do. David Carradine plays the country artist and does a fantastic job as well, especially in scenes where his character is drunk. This episode has so much characterization that you want to know how it ends and who really did it.moreless
