I've seen several episodes of "McBride" and I like it a little better each time I see it. John LaRoquette is very good in everything. As McBride, I love how much he can communicate with just a wry glance.
In this particular episode, McBride's client is double-crossed during a custody case by his psychiatrist. The client later confesses to McBride that he believes he accidentally shot the doctor when he confronted him in his home. When McBride goes to the murder scene, the doctor is, as the title says, out - as in gone! A search for the body begins, with time of the essence. David Bowe has a nice comic turn as the panicked client. Former child star Sydney Penny plays one of the suspects, and she has grown up to be a very beautiful young woman. Soap star John Ingle is the confused head of the hospital.
These Hallmark mystery movies are nice shows - decent mysteries, good acting, some familiar faces. As far as LaRoquette, I quote Blanche Dubois: "That one seems superior to the others."
