Preachy...you betcha!
20 April 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Walk Softly Through the Night: Part 1" begins with a college student strung out on drugs. A friend takes him to the hospital but drops him off just outside. The student dies as a result of an overdose of Quaaludes and the rest of the episode consists of Quincy on a crusade to address this drug problem. In other words, the show really isn't about being a coroner or investigating crimes but is a social crusade show--and these are often among the weaker episodes. Helping him on this crusade are a 'with-it' Hispanic resident adviser (A Hernandez) and the dead guy's grieving father, Brock (Michael Constantine). Of the two 'assistants', the strangest is Brock--a guy who makes his living dressing up as a clown. By the end of part 1, they know which doctor helped feed the dead guy's drug habit--and Brock does a really, really bizarre and embarrassing tirade outside the doctor's office. It is pretty painful to watch.

Well, if you are looking for a good episode of the series, you should probably keep looking. Not only is this one really, really preachy, but it's a two-parter! Overall, rather weak and silly at times--particularly when it tries very hard to be edgy but it comes off as silly and overly sanitized. I particularly liked seeing 'the barrio' as well as the strung out guy outside the pharmacy! Unintentionally funny and slight.
