Rachael Leigh Cook,
E.G. Marshall returns as the head of the law firm that he portrayed in the 1961 to 1965 tv series. This time his partners are his son (Bridges) and his granddaughter (Plimpton). This is projected to be the first of a series of films. In this episode a man (Larroquette) murders the man who assaulted and raped his young daughter years before and was released from prison after serving just a few years. Tried for first degree murder, the team has to come up with a defense approaching he and his families' mental state. Specifically his daughter had to be placed in a mental ward as the result of the attack after a series of attempted suicides, his older daughter had run away from home because she could not stand the depressing atmosphere, and he simply thought of nothing but the man's death.

This movie is just about what TV movies are: supposed to get your attention but without breath to become solid or original entertainment. The plot is about two lawyers who defend a guy involved in a interesting and polemic (even if it's a cliche) case. The accused's daughter was raped, the raper served only 4 years and, feeling it was not enough, the father murders the raper when the later returns to live in the same neighbourhood after prison. So, is he morally guilty ? In the cast, should be mentioned that lovely and talented teen actress Rachael Leigh Cook is the girl raped. She's the best thing among other veterans.
