Special guest star Richard Brooks

Richard Brooks of Law & Order fame gets special guest star credit in his Diagnosis Murder episode, and also appearing is Steven Williams, who I loved in 21 Jump Street.

Diagnosis Murder is a favorite of mine, and definitely better than Murder, She Wrote. When you think about it, MSW was a product of the Reagan-Bush era, with the series running from 1984 to 1996. Perhaps if GOP candidate had beaten Clinton in '96 then MSW would have been encouraged to continue, but not to be. Diagnosis Murder ran from 1993 to 2001, the Clinton years, and perhaps the creators were disheartened when George W won in 2000. Anyway, MSW's Cabot Cove hardly featured any black folk (although George Bush Snr's infamous Willie Horton campaign commercial featured black folk) whereas Diagnosis Murder was more racially diverse.
