Favorite Matlock episode
2 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this episode Joe Seneca from the Crossroads my favorite movie is in this episode. Matlock & Joe play like 5 or 6 songs in this episode & I love it how long baby how long. Joe plays the blues bum so yell this man really must be a blues man at least I hope so.The only thing is Tylers not in this episode but believe me there's other things that make up for it in the episode. The way he solves the case I love it even though he was a few seconds late in the court room you'll have to watch it to figure that out. I love after the case they end the show with one more song. If you like the blues,good time songs mixed with a murder mystery well here you go.
