A poor followup--nothing's changed and nothing will change.
2 June 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Michael Constantine appeared in "Seldom Silent, Never Heard" in season seven of "Quincy". Now, in season eight's "Give Me Your Weak", he's back as the same character and with the same problem.

The show begins with a disabled man killing himself. It seems that his life was miserable and death was a relief. However, sadly, it seems he COULD have lived a much more normal life if a drug had been available to him. The rest of the show is basically "Seldom Silent, Never Heard" all over again--with Quincy fighting the government for the implementation of an orphan drug law. However, in the case of BOTH episodes, it ends with nothing really happening--and because of this, the show isn't very satisfying nor entertaining. It just comes off as preachy...very, very preachy. Overall, worth seeing only for die-hard "Quincy" fans--otherwise, you could do a lot better.
