An Authentic-Sounding Family Show
5 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

While I have no recollections of the show while it was aired, I do know I thoroughly enjoyed it. Perry Mason was a favorite of mine, but the setting was intense and hard-hitting while Owen Marshall was a warmer, slower-paced show. With a lead actor like Arthur Hill, how could you go wrong? One of the reviews stated it was produced by the same person who did Marcus Welby and I am not surprised as both shows had a similar atmosphere. Joan Darling was well-cast as his secretary and Lee Majors was a capable assistant. Funny how one reviewer pointed out Majors hated to have to wear a suit and tie and would be happier on The Six Million Dollar Man (a show I know but never watched) and another series, but I watched him on The Big Valley, another favorite show of mine. It was too bad such a well-done show should only last three seasons but I had the fortune of watching it on reruns during which time I filled six 6-hour videos with episodes I am now transferring on to DVDs. Maybe the show won't be released as others have been but I will have over 50 episodes at my fingertips.
