Quincy, M.E. Reviews & Ratings

60 minutes

A strong-willed L.A. coroner often clashes with his boss and the police by investigating crimes. Before 'Crossing Jordan,' and 'CSI' and its clones, there was this first-rate medical-examiner drama, which premiered as part of NBC's 'Mystery Movie' anthology. Jack Klugman received four Emmy nominations for the role of the doctor whose first name was never mentioned, and later appeared on 'Jordan' as a retired ME, though not as Dr. Quincy.

Quincy's character is loosely modelled on Los Angeles' "Coroner to the Stars" Thomas Noguchi. Jack Klugman's hard-charging personality makes this show work. It was one of earliest CSI-type shows. It's amazing how much technology has changed since this show aired!

The show resembled an earlier Canadian tv series Wojeck, broadcast by CBC Television. John Vernon, who played the Wojeck title role, later guest starred in the 3rd season episode "Requiem for the Living". Quincy's character is loosely modeled on Los Angeles' "Coroner to the Stars" Thomas Noguchi.

Quincy was broadcast as 90-minute telefilms as part of the NBC Sunday Mystery Movie rotation in the fall of 1976 alongside Columbo, McCloud, and McMillan. The series proved popular enough that after 4 episodes aired during the 1976–1977 season in the extended format, Quincy was spun off into its own weekly one-hour series. A 2 hour episode kicked off a 13 episode shortened run of the series. This causes confusion as to whether the series had 7 or 8 seasons.
