  • Notes

    • General Hospital (Tristan Rogers), Paper Chase (James Stephens), Designing Women (Dixie Carter), Julia (Diahann Carroll), and Nightmare on Elm Street (Robert Englund) are among the TV shows and movies represnted in this entry.

    • Dixie Carter and guest attorney Hal Holbrook are husband and wife.

    • Hal Holbrook plays the guest attorney in this one. Notorious poser and wannabe Robin Leach plays the murder victim following in the footsteps of earlier posers and victims Geraldo Rivera and Regis Philbin.

  • Allusions

    • The producers obviously decided to Matlock the series a bit after the disastrous TCOT Wicked Wives and hence Hal Holbrook is cast as homespun attorney Bill McKenzie. Not surprising since many of the Perry Mason writers, directors, and producers also worked on Matlock when it was in production on NBC.
