McMillan & Wife

Season 5 Episode 7

Point of Law

Aired Wednesday 8:00 PM Mar 07, 1976 on NBC



  • Trivia

    • There is an apparent conflict of interest. As McMillan points out, he "can't be a police commissioner and a naval officer at the same time: it's against the law." But "old friends can still have conversations," therefore his consultations with Sgt. Enright are not a mistake.
