Goofs

A night time scene of a patient arriving at the hospital is recycled footage from The Season 2 episode "Snake Eyes". Not only is the exterior of the building different, the sign for "Pines Clinic" which prominently featured in "Snake Eyes" is clearly visible. See more »

A rather typical Quincy versus the evil corporation episode.
14 April 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Quincy is called to work, briefly, in a small town. Although no one dies (odd for a Quincy episode), people in this small town are getting sick. The problem is that no one seems to know why and for a while, all the leads go no where. Eventually, however, a POSSIBLE link occurs--a lead which might implicate a local factory that makes cattle feed AND poisons (a bad combination, I know).

Overall, this is an okay episode of "Quincy". I say okay because a couple things seem pretty limp--that a company would put cattle feed and deadly poison in packages that are almost identical! Also, the ending seemed a bit improbable AND well before it occurred, my wife said "I bet you that man's daughter will get sick next"--and she did. Predictable and a bit silly but overall still a decent and watchable episode.
