If Quincy acted this way today, he'd probably have been fired even if he is Super-Coroner!, 10 May 2013
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

This show appears to have been modeled after the reported exploits of Vice President Nelson Rockefeller--in particularly in regard to his death. Some stories say he died with his mistress 'in the act' and considering the show was made only about a year later, it seems pretty certain this is the show's inspiration. Regardless, a man who is running for governor dies at his mistress's apartment. However, when the case is investigated by a lady coroner, she has reasons to doubt that it was an accident.

As my wife and I re-watch the "Quincy" series, we have noticed periodically just how sexist Dr. Quincy was. Often, he'd meet professional women and tell them how beautiful they were, make passes at female co-workers and a variety of other behaviors which today would have resulted in his getting fired! This episode is a particularly egregious example--with Quincy making the moves on a new co-worker--a lady coroner who was brought in to cover for him when he was forced to go on vacation. Not surprisingly, Quincy couldn't keep off the job and returned to shamelessly sexually harass the lady. The end result? By the end, she and Quincy would share late night dinners and take off on vacation together!! Plus, the lady doctor DID need him to come in a help her save the day. Now am I saying this is a terrible show? No. And, I am sure many would not be the least bit offended by his boorish ways. Overall, a decent episode but one that might annoy you. Regardless, the show IS interesting and worth seeing.
