The theme song for The Trials of Rosie O'Neill, "I Wish I Knew," was written by Carole King, not Carly Simon. I don't know who sang the song during the opening credits, but Carole King was a guest star on the episode, "The Reunion," along with Tyne Daly, and did perform "I Wish I Knew" during that episode. (I have the sheet music--Words and Music by Carole King!) As to the series itself, I liked it very much and was highly disappointed when it was canceled. I was hooked on it after seeing it for the first time--which may or may not have been the first episode--in it Rosie defends a young girl (maybe homeless, at least "family-less") accused of killing her newborn child and hiding the body in a dumpster. She claimed the baby was born dead and that she had buried the baby in the dumpster. It was a very touching episode, the young lady playing the defendant did an excellent job in her portrayal of the downtrodden girl. Being a fan of Sharon Gless, I am glad to see "Cagney & Lacey" finally being offered on DVD; I would like to see "The Trials of Rosie O'Neill," (the entire series) come out on DVD, I would definitely buy it.
