Mostly Rubbish

You could see this as a potentially gripping episode with a smarmy owner of a boys camp clearly running outside of the law, some careless caretakers, another beautiful locale, and Quincy energized and ready to fight from the get go (even before he knows the facts as his wont).

Unfortunately the order of the day is moralistic entrapment and viewers are tethered into another social argument about the benefits of the home delivery of family counseling.

Given all that it is not a surprise that Emily Hanover pounces on the opportunity to make the show her own in an elaborate bow and puff outfit that makes her look more like the wife of the Scarlet Pimpernel than Los Angeles County's most famous medical examiner.

I did like the extended view of a classic "old school" Taco Bell and there is something to be said for the emotion stirred up as the drunk/abusive father reaches out to his incorrigible son. And three cheers for an appearance by the Beaver's older brother (Tony Dow) as a country doctor who makes house calls.
