A variation on Agatha Christie's "Murder on the Orient Express"
2 June 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The show begins with a nasty brute (Brion James) wandering about town harassing people and breaking lots of different laws. However, he's due in court and you assume he's going to get the book thrown at him. But, one witness doesn't show up and another recants his testimony and he's released. You assume it's all because everyone is afraid of the guy. However, SOMEONE wasn't and they shoot and kill the guy shortly after the trial. But, when the police come, EVERYONE says they did it and the sheriff is baffled as to who to arrest. Plus, it's obvious the police really don't care who killed the guy--he clearly had it coming. But Quincy isn't convinced and tries to investigate on his own--only to find a very nasty town standing in his way.

The show is much like taking the Agatha Christie novel "Murder on the Orient Express" and combining it with the unfriendly town cliché (used in "Quincy", "Cannon", "Mannix" and other detective shows). It is entertaining but it's also hardly original. The only real originality comes when you learn what really happened--who really killed him and why. Not a bad show--just awfully familiar.
