The entire premise for this one is flawed...and ridiculous.
Quincy is on jury duty. It's a murder case and all during the hearing, the doctor makes a bit of a nuisance--asking questions and questioning the evidence. At one point, he even sneaks some items from the courtroom or order to determine if everyone is wrong about the case in question!
Years ago, I was a social worker in a prison halfway house and then a psychotherapist. I was called to jury duty several times but was soon dismissed from the jury pool. Why? Much of it is because the courts do NOT want professionals who might have expert knowledge on crimes or criminal behavior in the jury pool. They are looking for more 'blank slates'--the average person who does not work for the police, courts, prison system or therapists. They don't want a juror who wants to investigate the case themselves! So, in light of this, I was irritated by "Jury Duty", as I knew that there was absolutely no way that a coroner like Quincy would ever make his way onto the jury for a criminal case. It's even doubtful with his background that they'd have put him on a jury for a civil case (such as a lawsuit). Yet, somehow, we are expected to abandon common sense and accept this ridiculous premise.
