Trivia

In a funny twist, Leonard Frey, who plays the unsavoury lawyer, Frank Bristol, had been in one of the funniest episodes of The Mary Tyler Moore Show: Ted Baxter's Famous Broadcasters' School (1975), in which Ted Baxter gives his name (and everything else, without knowing it) to a con artist. In a desperate bid to try and buy some time, the WJM gang heads to (what's supposed to be) the introductory night of the 'TBFBS', only, when they arrive, there's just one person (played wonderfully by); Leonard Frey. They try to reason with him (Georgette; 'who'd you take to the school dance?'), but he's obstinate. He tells the doleful story of his life, in which he's alleys played second-fiddle to his brother, Richard. When the parents could only afford to send one of them to college, it was... Richard. He ends the story by saying he's not going to be understanding anymore, and if they can't put the school together, they can talk with his lawyer; Richard. See more »

A wonderful change of pace.
16 April 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

There is an awful fire and over a dozen people are killed. After an exhausting night, Quincy stomps off and Astin is left in the morgue. However, another body is discovered and Astin himself decides to do the autopsy. It seems pretty cut and dry. However, the next day, Quincy comes in and has different findings. Astin naturally believes that he's wrong and begins to doubt himself--going so far as to resign. Now it's up to Quincy the crusader to come to the rescue and get to the bottom of exactly what happened and determine whether or not Astin was correct in his finding.

This is an excellent change of pace having Astin doing some hands-on work in the lab. It's also a reasonably interesting plot that kept my attention. I particularly liked the scene where Quincy was hanging out with strippers--and you'll just have to see this for yourself! Overall, a novel plot--one that is well worth your time.
