Hipper than Perry Mason
21 August 2002 | by purakekSee all my reviews

A pair of lawyers who represent wrongly-accused clients in a show that represents good mystery writing in the 70s. Love the rapport between Rosetti and Ryan. Love their mystery solutions even better! An example is when they freed a client based on the length of time ice cream melts. Even Father Brown couldn't have come up with this!
