Enjoyable, though the main character, Nobby, is an idiot.

Reed Hadley starred in the successful but short-lived series, "Racket
Squad". Shortly after it was canceled, he returned with another show
that looked and sounded almost like "Racket Squad" but with a few minor
changes. "Public Defender" had a similar introduction and Hadley's
playing the lawyer, Bart Matthews, was almost like a clone of his
Captain Braddock on the previous show. Fortunately, since I really like
"Racket Squad", watching most of the episodes of "Public Defender" is
also very pleasant.
Charles Bronson stars in this installment. He plays Nobby--a boxer who
is definitely short on brains! It begins with Nobby calling Bart
Matthews (Hadley) and telling him that he probation and wants to turn
himself in to the authorities, as he's tired of living on the run. What
happens next is interesting and illustrates that perhaps Nobby took one
blow too many to his skull, as he shows some seriously impaired
reasoning. But, thanks to Matthews, everyone is happy and life is good.
Thanks Bart, for being a real stand-up guy!
While I'll admit that this isn't one of the best episodes in the
series, it was enjoyable and kept my interest.
