Although Dick Van Dyke was born in 1925, in the final season in 2001 it is shown that his character Dr Mark Sloan was born in 1937. However in the episode "Death by Extermination" from the second series in 1994 Dr Sloan describes himself as being in his sixties. See more »
Dr. Mark Slone often undertakes actions which would result in evidence and investigations being compromised. Since he has never been a police officer, these actions could result in cases being dropped or overturned upon appeal. There is no way that a District Attorney would allow Slone and his colleagues to perform the actions that they do in the show. See more »
I never watched this show in prime time. Then I started watching it on Pax TV at 10pm and I was hooked. Now I watch it in prime time rather than watching Frasier. I love the plots and the tongue in cheek dialogue. I especially love their theme shows filled with old TV stars. I like Dick Van Dyke in this better than as Rob Petrie.
This is decent TV. I've also started watching all the Murder She Wrote reruns on A&E. I'm tired of the hackneyed sex-obsessed teeny bopper shows on regular TV. No-I'm not a senior citizen!
