Perhaps a slam at Janov?
5 April 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Quincy in love with Monahan? based on Primal Scream--bull by Janov Perry Mason ending 2x disclaimers In the 60s and 70s, Dr. Arthur Janov created 'Primal Therapy'--an odd new form of treatment for psychological problems that involved forcing patients to scream to release their hidden pain. It was very trendy and was, briefly, rather popular. However, over the years, folks have begun questioning the efficacy of this and most today would consider it to be disproved. While the writer of this episode never referred to Janov or his treatment, in this show you see what appears to be Primal Therapy--though, oddly, it's done in hot tubs! It makes you wonder if perhaps they were trying to say something about this sort of pop psychology.

A dead man is found at a clinic doing this therapy. Monahan thinks the treatment is bogus and immediately suspected that the people at the clinic were responsible for the death. Quincy considers this but is even more motivated to get to the truth because the TIME of death could determine whether or not his widow will receive an insurance settlement.

This is a moderately interesting episode but suffers from a 'Perry Mason ending'. In other words, Quincy has a great theory--a theory that relies on one of the perpetrators incriminating themselves when being interviewed. Without this, there may have been no case at all against anyone. Weak, very weak...but also rather entertaining up until this point.
