10/10. Helen and Howard from TAGS were also on the show along with Barney and Thelma Lou. Favorite episode of Matlock was the 3rd of the series (the first 2 was a Two-parter) with Dick Van Dyke playing a not so nice guy.

I don’t even like Matlock. It’s like we’re supposed to love him. Not so lovable.

9 out of 10. I'd always thought that Matlock ended because of ratings. Never knew that Andy wanted to spend more time with his family. The rest of the questions? No problem!

To be totally fair, the first question is from the ABC Mystery Movie, of which Columbo (the second run of episodes) was a component.

5/10 I consider this show to be unwatchable. I saw a Knotts scene or two, and it only made me sad.
