It originally debuted during the final season of The NBC Sunday Mystery Movie. When the show did well in the ratings NBC decided to upgrade it to a weekly series, especially since it looked like The Sunday Mystery Movie would be canceled. It's place in the rotation was assumed by the new show Lanigan's Rabbi (1976), which was canceled with the others at the end of the 1976-77 season. Quincy and Columbo (1971) were the only elements of that series to be spun off on its own. See more »
I miss those days when quincy was shown at TV here in Norway. The show was just pure magic. On one side Quincy was the relenteless detective/coroner who gave everything on the job. On the other side he also liked to shoot the breeze, drink, chase woman and have fun. That's what it is all about. The 70's were a dream considering TV series. Just think about cannon, Kojak and Quincy. JUST GREAT. Quincy is "old school, funny and a delight to watch. The style of the 70's seems so much more relaxed and cool compared to that of today.Recommended for everybody that's tired of all the crap shown to day. The 70's rule and Quincy is number one!
