A Father-Son lawyer duo take a variety of cases that often deal with the important issues of the day…
Recent law school graduate (Robert Reed) joins his father (E.G. Marshall) as the pair tackle challenging legal cases, often involving issues which were highly touchy for the times (abortion, euthanasia, “un-American” activities, movie censorship). In most, the freshly minted lawyer has much to learn from his father’s extensive legal experience.
Ep 02: Killer Instinct
Jim McCleery has won a fight at the cost of his opponent’s life and his own freedom.
This drama about a father-son legal team was one of the most acclaimed series of the ’60s (it won its best-program Emmy category three of its four seasons). The series tackled such controversial issues as abortion, euthanasia and the blacklist, and throughout its run there was a seriousness of purpose. As series creator and executive story editor Reginald Rose (who wrote some of its most notable episodes), put it: `The law is the subject of our programs. Not crime, not mystery.’
