Matlock to defend a client framed by the presiding judge
27 June 2006 | by (Atlanta, GA (USA)) – See all my reviews

This is the first Matlock. It might have been better if the murderer -played by Dick van Dyke- would not have been shown committing the crime. It appeared to be a little too constructed, really. I mean, why should the presiding judge -here: the murderer- ask Matlock to step down on a case? Because he is afraid of Matlock? nay! It has been done to put the story into a 45 minute frame. However, the idea is nice and it takes into account that first degree murder does also include so called 'respectable persons' committing them. All in all it is the plot that seemed to be working for most of the Matlock cases. The routine started here, the main characters are still kind of being introduced including Matlock's very own idiosyncrasies, like cleaning the shoes on his office desk while people are around...
