This didn't need to be a two-parter.
1 July 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is the first of a two-part episode of "Quincy". While some might like the fact that the Doctor was getting married, to me this marks the absolute lowest point of the show. In my opinion, bringing in a new Mrs. Quincy is just a sign that the writers had run out of ideas. It also damaged the series because of the sort of woman she (Anita Gillette) played, as she was as big a know-it-all as Quincy and offered no counter-point to him. Instead, it was like having TWO Quincys!! Two means two on crusades and two preaching about various social ills. And, the social issues episodes were among the worst in the series--and the better crime investigation shows were no longer the norm.

The show begins with Dr. Hanover (the soon-to-be Mrs. Quincy) preparing for the wedding with her very efficient wedding planner. As for Quincy, he just stands back and says very little--just content to show up for the ceremony.

At the same time, there is another plot involving a wonderfully annoying couple (John McIntire and Jeanette Nolan). The scenes with the two of them together are great, as the couple bicker horribly and say amazingly awful things to each other. In particular, McIntire was fabulously despicable. Unfortunately for the episode, however, he dies midway through episode one--and without him, his widow comes off as a bit too kooky and annoying. You might like her--I think having so much of her in episodes one and two was a mistake.

Later in the show, Quincy's eagerness to marry ebbs after Dr. Hanover tries to emotionally castrate him (the show never deliberately makes this point, but as a guy, I sure felt bad for him). Although Quincy adores his boat and lives in it, his fiancée unilaterally decides he must sell it--and from then on, Quincy seems less certain of the marriage*. Ultimately, episode ends with the marriage being called off--as both were reassessing whether or not Quincy was really ready for this commitment.

As I mentioned above, I never liked the introduction of Dr. Hanover--she threw off the balance on the show and it seemed like the series has jumped the shark, so to speak. As for this particular show, there was stuff to like (McIntire) and stuff not to like. Overall, I didn't love the show and thought it overlong, but it is reasonably entertaining.

*Although the show NEVER seems to draw this conclusion--as for me, I wanted to punch Hanover in the nose and could understand Quincy's feelings about the boat! Let the guy keep his boat--you're both doctors and can EASILY afford a boat AND a real house!! This insistence on her part REALLY made me dislike her character. See part two to see what happens with this.
