Product Overview

Anchored by the folksy performance of television legend Andy Griffith (TV's The Andy Griffith Show), Matlock arrives on DVD for the very first time. This hit series portrays the cases of the Atlanta defense attorney who investigates crimes and fights for his clients, usually clinching a last-minute "Not Guilty" verdict. And Mr. Matlock is always aided by loyal partner and daughter Charlene (Linda Purl) and smooth private investigator Tyler Hudson (Kene Holliday). Don't let the rumpled seersucker suit fool you: under that good-ole-boy demeanor lies a brilliant legal mind.

This 7-disc set contains all 24 Season One episodes of the immensely popular series, including the 2-hour TV movie, Diary of a Perfect Murder, that introduced the character of Ben Matlock. Matlock is back, serving justice country-style!

Editors Note
Note There are TV lawyers and then there's Matlock. Folksy yet aggressive, Harvard educated but still down to earth--Andy Griffith's portrayal of the clever Southern attorney is one of the all-time classic icons of television legal dramas. Fans who have followed the show for all of its nine seasons will be thrilled to revisit how the program began. They'll also be surprised at how much the show changed over the years, while some things remained the same throughout its storied run. From his simple gray Ford to his predilection for hot dogs, Matlock came across as both a personable and humorous character whose $100,000 fee was always worth the dough. Along with Tyler Hudson (Kene Holliday) and Matlock's daughter Charlene (Lori Lethan), the first season established the format that the show would follow throughout its time on the air. The cases no one could solve, the clients no one could help, and the scandals no one could uncover are all deftly handled by Matlock and his team. For those who have never seen the show, this collection will clarify the program's immense popularity, while longtime fans will get to take a trip back in time and be reminded of why the fell in love in the first place. Includes 24 episodes plus the original pilot.

David Cornelius, DVD Talk ...television comfort food...a series that never grows old, and with a show as rewatchable as this, it deserves a spot in any mystery fan's collection.
Kerry Birmingham, DVD Verdict This is pleasant, digestible television, and if it's hokey by most modern standards, it's not worse off for it.
