Grand Jury System on Trial
8 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The grand jury plays an invaluable part in the federal judicial system. It is also employed in many U.S. states and may be used in connection with or in place of a preliminary hearing. It is open to abuse by unethical prosecutors, just as any aspect of the law is. It is not the evil implement of Big Brother that it is portrayed to be in this Quincy episode.

It is sometimes very uncomfortable to look at the trends from those years, in attire, hairstyles, language, fads, and television writing. Many times the crusading energy of the writers of episodes of Quincy went overboard in their depictions of things and people they had in their sights. This episode in particular -- which tried to introduce the soft side of estranged family members of bigwigs in the Mafia, as did an episode of Matlock and as did other dramatic television series in subsequent years -- was almost laughable in its intensity; but, hopefully, the writers didn't pull off what they obviously intended to do: prove to a lot of viewers that the federal grand jury is the modern-day American equivalent of the Spanish Inquisition.
