Quincy is VERY tricksy in this one!
5 March 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Brandeis case it makes sense Quincy would investigate the suspicious death but to investigate and prosecute Brandeis himself?! "The Hot Dog Murder" is a very entertaining and funny episode--as well as one of the more ridiculous shows from "Quincy". Because it is so much fun to watch, I do recommend you see it even though it's absurd throughout.

Quincy is nuttier than usual in this episode--that's for sure! The show begins with Quincy learning about a bizarre apparent murder from a student at one of his lectures. It seems that a dead prisoner was found with a whole hot dog shoved down his throat!! The most likely man behind this--Brandeis (William Windom). Brandeis is a rich chiseler--and the prisoner is a guy who apparently took the rap for Brandeis' actions. So, instead of waiting for the justice system to react, Quincy becomes like a super-spy and not only infiltrates the prison (where he does some incredibly unethical things) but he then buddies up to Brandeis and pulls a sting to get the creep to confess to his evil deeds!! As I said above, it's absurd. But there are so many funny moments (such as his impromptu lie detector in prison) that you ALMOST can forgive its excesses...almost! Fun but stupid.
