Storyline

Harry MacGraw is a private investigator who appeared three times in the television series, Murder, She Wrote. He now stars in his own series, wherein he is still a private investigator in Boston. Who always seems to lose all of his money betting. Across the hall from him is the office of Ellie Maginnis, an attorney. It seems that Harry did some work for her late husband, and it seems he swore by Harry, so she uses him though he usually goes through the wringer to solve the case. Helping him out is his niece, who is the receptionist in his office, and also lending a hand is Maginnis' nephew, who is an associate in her office. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Orbach legacy
27 March 2005 | by (interlachen, fl) – See all my reviews

McGraw another bright spot in life's work of Jerry Orbach. He is sorely missed. I have followed his career through the years and have always been impressed with his portrayals and have believed in the performance. He became "McGraw", he became "Brisco", etc. I did not see and hear Orbach. In reading through IMDb listing of credits I'm even more impressed at the scope of his works. Uncredited cameos, voice overs in "toons", whatever. He was a busy man. I seem to have missed quite a bit. I'll have to seek out those missing bits and view them. L&O will survive and prosper, but Lennie will always be on the set and in the minds of his many, many fans. God bless you Jerry.
