Storyline

Billy Jim Hawkins was a very clever defense attorney, whose drawl and laid back manner often fooled his adversaries into underestimating his skills as an attorney. Billy Jim's office was located in a small town in West Virginia, although his cases often took him to other places around the country. R.J. was Billy Jim's cousin and associate who did most of Billy Jim's legwork. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

Trivia

This series alternated on Tuesday evenings with Shaft (1973) which may have led to the early demise of both series. Contemporary analysts suggested that since the two shows appealed to vastly different audience bases, alternating them only served to confuse fans of both series, giving neither show the time to build up a large viewership.

This should be out on DVD
21 January 2008 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

The producers of this show originally wanted Andy Griffith, but instead made the very interesting choice of Jimmy Stewart. )We all know what Griffith did end up doing.) Stewart is one of the greatest movie stars ever; very few on his level ever ended up the star of a TV series, much less two. I'm not asking for the Stewart sitcom; I am asking for HAWKINS. The interplay between him and resolutely colorful Strother Martin was funny, the mysteries were satisfying, Stewart was just fine. Mystery series do well on DVD; Stewart movies do well on DVD. This would seem an obvious choice--but to whom do we complain? Does MGM (and probably therefor Warners) own the video rights, or does CBS?
