Storyline

Aaron runs into one of his first clients, who is still bitter with him for failing to successfully defend him from drug possession charges. The young musician, now out on parole, still maintains his innocence, and Aaron is shocked by the conditions of his parole: he cannot associate with any other musicians, cannot go outside a very restricted area, and cannot associate with any drug addicts---even his own wife.

Trivia

Probably due to early 1970s social and racial concerns by the studio and possibly by the network, Paramount Television requested that the opening scene, which originally was written with Aaron Silverman, played by Zalman King and Pat Walters, played by Judy Pace, socializing at a jazz club, be re-written with Silverman and his date Joanne, a white woman. Interestingly, this was the only time the character Joanne appeared in the series.

According to a New York Times article (February 1, 1971). episode writer and former story editor John W. Bloch protested to the Writers Guild of America, West against any alteration of the scene. An unidentified producer of the series was "apprehensive over mixed dating might invite difficulties over acceptance of the program by southern (ABC affiliate) television stations.

Notably, show producer Matthew Rapf and John W. Bloch left the series at mid-season. It's uncertain whether it was because of this controversy. See more »
