Okay, while I might have thought that a particular episode of "Quincy" was the worst ever, here I have one that truly is the worst!
30 June 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Beyond the Open Door" begins with perhaps the dumbest openings in the history of "Quincy". A teenage girl is hitchhiking and the old guy who picks her up does NOT drive to the school where she wants to go. Instead he goes down some alley. Not surprisingly, she assumes he's some sicko. OK. No problem. She then screams at him--telling him she's going to report him to the police and storms off. OK. No problem--all this seems possible. But, then she walks directly in front of the car and stands there--until, surprise, surprise, the guy runs her down!! Who thought this scene made any sense?! She escapes from a sicko and then walk directly in front of the car? And, when there are lots of places to move to in order to avoid this car barreling down on her, she just stands there waiting to be killed?!?!?! Huh?!

Sadly, after a horrible opening, the show only gets worse! That's because the show turns out to be all about some psychic who is helping the police locate a serial killing rapist. This is odd, as you'd think a show about the scientific investigations of crimes would be scientific and not degenerate to a world with about as much validity as voodoo! Does it get worse? Oh, yeah, as ultimately the show takes a PRO-PSYCHIC angle--like these folks are of as much use in investigations as the police, forensic scientists and the like. Gimme a break! Talk about being irresponsible--feeding the public this sort of bilge when there are no critical scientific studies that show that these folks are of any value to police.

This episode is ample proof that by season eight, "Quincy" was moribund and bereft of new ideas. Further proof is marrying off the doctor a couple episodes later--with the writers trying ANYTHING to push some life into a show that should have probably ended a season or two earlier.

By the way, as I watched this re-run, my daughter kept asking me why I was watching such a dumb show. And, I sure had a hard time justifying sticking with this particular one.
