Trivia

During the first season, the title of all of the episodes began with the word "Question," followed by a colon and what could have been a proposition placed before the Legislature (as in the pilot episode, "Question: What is Truth?") This naming convention was dropped for the 10 episodes of the second season that were broadcast before the series was cancelled. See more »

Maybe I was the only other person to see it....

And I loved it. Fourteen at the time and still grieving my hero JFK, this program was wonderful. Crenna was perfect and the weekly issue-oriented scripts were decades ahead of their time. I will always remember Slattery's People
