Trivia

Joe Seneca was born as Joel McGhee, Jr. in Cleveland, Ohio in 1919. Brownie McGhee was born in Knoxville, Tennessee in 1915. Both men died in 1996. Interestingly, the two are not related. Popular thought is that Joe Seneca changed his name to avoid confusion regarding his friend and fellow musician. See more »

Goofs

When Ben first visits Eddie in prison he is playing his guitar. There is no way the police would allow Eddie to have his guitar in his jail cell since it could be used as a weapon. And they certainly would NEVER allow him to have guitar strings in his cell because they could be used as a weapon and/or a means of hanging himself. See more »

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.
