Another Soapbox Episode

Quincy morphed from show about solving a crime to a show that became a soapbox for Jack Klugman's social causes. Klugman began to assert more control over the show as it progressed and it became more and more "preachy". Quincy used to be a good show about solving a murder. Eventually the murder (or accidental death) became a vehicle for Jack to spend 40 minutes spewing his liberal rhetoric. Seasons 7 & 8 were the absolute worst.The rest of this review is just designed to fill up space to meet the 10 line minimum.
