Riddle at 24,000
In the first of two pilot shows that ended the seventh season (somewhat odd considering "Ironside's" dicey status in the ratings), Desi Arnaz plays a doctor who is suspicious of the in-flight death of a private pilot. The quirky doctor, who likes to mix up various home-brewed alcoholic beverages such as green bourbon, and Ironside make a good team as they try to figure out what would cause the pilot's heart attack at the controls (his wife brought the plane down with much difficulty). The only major clue is a thermos with a glass inside, which shattered while the ...

Amy Prentiss: Part 1
This feature-length conclusion to the series' penultimate season (broken into two episodes for ease of syndication, but initially run on the same evening) features minimal involvement with the usual cast, serving instead as the pilot for the short-lived Amy Prentiss (1974). The main show was often quite reactionary, in common with much tv of the period, so this tale of a hard-hitting female police chief was quite a change in gear. Perhaps too much of a change: the spin-off (launched one week later) wasn't a success, despite winning Jessica Walter an Emmy, whilst ...
