Klugman was right to boycott this one!
8 May 2013 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Jack Klugman, who had any number of run-ins with producers and writers during the run of "Quincy, M.E.," reportedly refused to appear in this episode because he hated the script. And seeing this cobbled-together mish-mash, who can blame him? His part in the show is instead covered by Dr. Hiro, a take-off on real life L.A. Coroner Dr. Thomas Noguchi. As played by Yuki Shimoda, though, he is Charlie Chan. He speaks in the same halting English as Sidney Toler, he dispenses aphorisms to one and all, and he even has a jivey, jokey black chauffeur! (It's just too bad Mantan Moreland was already dead by then; he at least would have injected some energy into it.) Dr. Hiro spends half the episode correcting people on the pronunciation of his name, and the other half mispronouncing it along with them. At times the show breaks into broad comedy for no reason (a medical examiner races through the crowded halls of the coroner's office yahooing like a cowboy when a "corpse" is discovered to be alive), and at other times it falls into unintentional comedy, mostly due to a totally inept performance by guest star Bob Crane. Crane plays a doctor who is trying to discover why a toddler is dying in front of him, but he does so with all the concern and urgency of a blade of grass. And that's just one subplot. There's also a body coming in from overseas containing hidden smuggled diamonds, which is to be delivered to a group of thugs who look like they came from a Three Stooge comedy; there's an actress who attempts suicide because she has no friends, even though a dozen or so show up at the hospital; and there's a surprise birthday party for Dr. Hiro, in which his staff and friends (well, actually Quincy's staff and friends) give him a Chinese dragon, even though he's Japanese. Oh, and could the constant lingering shots of the dying baby's parents lighting up cigarettes and leaving the butts everywhere, and a half-dozen closeups of "No Smoking" signs, possibly be clues to the kid's affliction? As over-the-top as Klugman could be in this show, and frequently was, this episode makes it painfully apparent that he was indeed the glue that held the whole thing together, and without him, you have a mess.
