A relevant subject matter, but it's like the attack of the Quincy twins!
8 June 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I am happy that "Quincy" attacked the subject of suicide among young adults. Unfortunately, the subject wasn't quite as good as it could have been because of the addition of the new series regular, Dr. Hanover (Anita Gillette). Here is the problem---in so many episodes, Dr. Gillette is just like another Quincy--yelling, making soapbox speeches and crusading. And so, it's a lot like seeing TWO Quincys--and two is at least one too many.

The show begins with a girl phoning her busy father. He's too busy and she hangs up. Sadly, in the next scene, she's dead--apparently the victim of a car accident. But, very quickly Quincy determines it was NOT the case--and she might have committed suicide and her body was dropped there. To make this final determination, a psychological autopsy (the second time this is done in the series) is conducted by Dr. Hanover. She talks to friends and family to create a psychological portrait of the dead girl--and it's obvious she was depressed and suicidal. But what about her boyfriend--he, too, show many of the same signs.

Aside from being a bit preachy, this is actually a decent show. My complaints are mentioned above but the show is timeless due to its theme.
