Why Did She Have to Die?
3 May 2007 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Routine episode as Friday and Smith track down a killer. Notable chiefly for presence of Cliff Arquette, grandfather of Patricia, Roseanna, and David, as the circus man. Later Arquette achieved considerable success as Charlie Weaver, a lovable but scatterbrained grandfatherly type, on late night TV. Here he plays a similar role, though he's difficult to recognize without the Charlie Weaver get-up and glasses. I wish there were something particularly noteworthy about the case itself, but there isn't. Still and all, it's entertaining for fans, showing again how dedicated these early entries were to the routine hard work involved in solving unglamorous cases like this which probably happen daily but rarely make the newspapers. Come to think of it, maybe that is a good reason to recommend an entry such as this.
