Typical Matlock style
29 August 2018 | by daniel_alecSee all my reviews

This episode is typical. A murder takes place, possible suspects are interviewed, suspicion is spread to 3 other people, first witness has flaws in his story, Matlock digs deeper to find more clues, and finally finds evidence to exonerate his defendant. I did notice one flaw though. The last meeting between Matlock and his client took place in the jail. For some reason the client was wearing a nice sweater and sport coat. It is obvious that prisoners don't dress this way and have to conform to standard issue clothes.
