Storyline

Manion and Brander travel to Flat Lake, Iowa - Manion to fight a two-year-old excessive-noise citation from when he drove through town on his motorcycle, and Brander to break up with an old girlfriend face-to-face. The cantankerous local judge in Manion's case (Jerry Vandyke) cites Manion with contempt and puts Manion in jail for a night. While there, Manion meets Brander's girlfriend, who has been charged with murdering her new husband on their honeymoon. To get in the judge's good graces Manion agrees to help solve the case.

A Wonderful Reunion!
16 September 2007 | by smgrigalSee all my reviews

Just a brief note for the fans of the 90's TV Show "Coach"...if you liked that show, you will love this episode.

**Semi-Spoiler...more of a synopsis.

The episode itself is a great episode mixing decent action, great drama, but most importantly-tongue in cheek humor. Due to a traffic violation, The Chief (Craig T. Nelson) is forced to make a court appearance in a small town that he recently visited. He's in for a treat when the bailiff turns out to be Bill Fagerbakke (Dauber From "Coach") and the judge is Jerry Van Dyke (Luther from Coach). The judge being off his rocker a bit makes for a lot of classic dialog.

If you're a fan of "Coach" you will appreciate the subtle nuance of this episode of "The District"!
