Storyline

After an argument with the man he's replacing, the incoming zoo superintendent is gunned down. The zoo worker with a criminal record seems the obvious gunman, but Herb's not convinced. It's obvious that no one at the zoo liked the new boss and had a motive to see him die. Written by Jay Phelps <jaynashvil@aol.com>

Fair at best...
29 September 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is from a series that was based on cases from a real defense attorney, Herbert Maris (MacDonald Carey). However, my assumption is that the cases have been heavily changed for television--mostly because Maris acts more like Charlie Chan or a police investigator than any defense attorney!

When the show begins, a man is murdered at the zoo--shot by someone with a rifle. Maris just happens to be there for some other reason when he gets pulled into the case by a man who is afraid he'll be charged with the killing. And, through the course of the show, Maris uses his smarts to ferret out who the real killer is and all is once again right with the world.

While the show is mildly entertaining, it really seemed VERY unrealistic and even a bit silly. Attorneys do NOT investigate crimes like this and the writing seemed a bit shabby. Not horrible...but also not very good.
