Decent but not your typical "Quincy"
14 May 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

It's ironic I saw this episode of "Quincy" only a week or so after I saw an old "Mannix" episode with a similar theme. Both involve the Catholic church bringing in both as experts to try to prove or disprove the existence of a so-called miracle. In the case of Mannix, it really didn't make a lot of sense bringing him in but at least Quincy's expertise as a coroner could have been useful in this task! As I mentioned above, Quincy (along with Sam) is brought in as part of a team to a Mexican village to determine the validity of claims that some remains found belong to a beloved saint. From Quincy's point of view, this is something that must accomplished ASAP, as some people are neglecting to get legitimate medical treatment in hopes of a miracle. Also, with all these folks converging on this tiny town, a public health crisis is looming. Naturally, the other team members understand his concerns but don't want to rush the process as they want to do it right. In the midst of this chore, Quincy takes time out to be angry--and the object of this anger is on irresponsible newspaper reporters making outrageous claims to sell papers.

While I would prefer the older style episodes where Quincy investigates murders and other crimes, this one is a decent departure. Well written and enjoyable my only complaint is the addition to the cliché of the cute, sick kid--this has been done too many times in the past and I hate to see a child being reduced to just a plot device.
