Several scenes, McBride has Jessie (the dog) with him in various locations, yet the dog somehow seems to make it back to the office before he does. Example: when he goes to Simi Valley he even has Jessie with him in the man's home but when he returns to the office in La, Jessie is already there, helping Phil. See more »

Weak Perry Mason Wannabe
15 January 2005 | by Garrett Michael HayesSee all my reviews

As much as I like John Larroquette, I found this "mystery" a little hard to watch, mainly for what it didn't deliver - John Larroquette. He is playing it so low-key in this un-puzzling story that I was afraid he had fallen asleep.

Also, I must have watched too much "Law & Order" over the years, because I found myself wanting to leap up and cry "objection" in the courtroom scenes. From Perry Mason to Ben Matlock, TV attorneys have almost always bent the rules of the court by revealing facts in their "questions" that no judge would ever allow in a real trial. But even the staid and stoic Owen Marshall did it with more vigor than Larroquette's somnambulent McBride (no first name given).

The charge for this one: Dullness in the first degree.
