Inconsistent character development spoiled this one for me.
I hate inconsistent episodes of TV shows. Someone should catch these inconsistencies, as they irritate hard-core fans. For instance, in season two of "Quincy" ("A Blow to the Head"), the doctor investigates the death of a boxer and talks about how brutal the so-called 'sport' is and how it should be outlawed. However, here in season five, we have "TKO"--an episode where, inexplicably, Quincy is actually at a boxing match cheering and betting on the outcomes!! Additionally, like this prior episode, we now KNOW one of these boxers is gonna die!!
After the death of one of the boxers shortly after the fight, Quincy at first rules that a blow received in the fight caused a skull fracture that allowed a bacteria into the brain--killing the man. However, after a friend who was only JUST introduced in the show also dies, Quincy sees that the deaths are related--they went to the same surgery clinic that was not prepared for such delicate and potentially dangerous operations.
I think had I never seen the previous episode, I might have liked this one more. But seeing a doctor endorsing boxing seemed weird...and inconsistent considering that Quincy is almost always on some crusade! Overall, a fair show but no more.
