My love for mystery shows is due mostly to watching Matlock during my summer breaks as a kid. The show stars Andy Griffith as the aloof defense attorney Ben Matlock who defends anyone as long as they could pay his $100,000 fee. Luckily, almost all of his clients were innocent and with help from his reliable associates and private detective friends, he uncovers the true murderer in dramatic courtroom fashion. While the show was insanely formulaic, it was definitely not as cheesy as Murder She Wrote.
