Ben Matlock (Andy Griffith) an old-fashioned Atlanta lawyer who always wear a grey seersucker suit, a white buttondown collar shirt, and a necktie with his partner & daughter Charlene Matlock (played by Lori Lethlin on "Diary of a Perfect Murder" and later played by Linda Purl on the weekly prime-time series on NBC) and was later replaced by left-handed associate Michelle Thomas (Nancy Stafford) and she left the show in 1992 the same year when the show moved to ABC and Michelle was replaced by Charlene's sister Leanne MacIntyre (played by Brynn Thayer) and left the show in 1994 and replaced by Jeri Stone (played by Carol Houston).
Also Tyler Hudson (played by Kene Holliday) is the P.I. and later replaced by Conrad McMasters (played by Clarence Gilyard,Jr. who left the show in 1993 to join the cast on a then "new" CBS series "Walker,Texas Ranger") and was replaced by Cliffton Lewis (played by Daniel Roebuck, who earlier played some different characters durning the NBC run), and ADA Julie March (played by Julie Sommars who left the show in 1993 and came back for a guest appearance in a 1994 episode titled "The Confession".
Matlock never looses a murder case and he's a greatist Television lawyer of all time.
I give it 10 out of 10.
