* PoorlyDisguisedPilot: The episode "Blood Ties" was clearly a pilot for a series featuring the two female police officers who were showcased. Similarly, "How To Murder Your Lawyer" features a lawyer who teaches a night class (which Steve attends) getting involved with intrigue at his girm. Biggest sign - TV music titan Mike Post scored the episode.

* PoorlyDisguisedPilot: The Several episodes featured possible pilots:
** "Retribution," a two-part
episode was intended to be a pilot for "The Chief." Fred Dryer starred at the hard-nosed Los Angeles chief of police who played various political games to provide law and order. Neal [=McDonough=] would co-star as Ross Canin, a mob boss who was actually an undercover policeman acting as Masters' ultimate inside man.
** "Sister Michael Wants You" had Delta Burke as a nun solving murders.
** "A Mime is a Terrible Thing to Waste" featured Rachel York as Randy Wofle, an eccentric woman with various jobs who gets involved in murder cases.
**
"Blood Ties" was clearly to be a pilot for a series featuring the two female police officers who were showcased. Similarly, called "Whistlers" with rule-bending detective Amy Devlin (Kathy Evison) and her more outrageous partner Taylor Lucas (Zoe [=McLellan=]).
**
"How To to Murder Your Lawyer" features featuring Mitchell Whitfield as Arnold Baskin, a lawyer bumbling tax attorney by day and (Steve's) law course professor at evening, and Leah Remini as his wisecracking student Agnes Benedetto who teaches a night class (which Steve attends) getting involved with intrigue happens to work as an assistant at his girm. Biggest sign law firm. Together they would have sold crimes - TV music titan Mike Post scored if the episode.series had been made.

Added DiffLines:

* ADayInTheLimelight: "Blast From The Past" focuses more on Steve; the episode concerns the release of a man who sent up for killing his wife, who wants revenge on Steve. It's also of a less humorous bent than usual.

* ConnectTheDeaths: A serial bomber wrote the name of her dead father on the city map. The absurdity of this is [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Steve, who draws a pig in the same pattern, though of course Dr. Sloan is right.

'''''Diagnosis: Murder''''' is a mystery/medical/crime drama television series starring Creator/DickVanDyke as Dr. Mark Sloan, a medical doctor who solves crimes with the help of his son, a homicide detective played by his real-life son Barry Van Dyke." That's directly from [[Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} The Other Wiki]] and is probably one of the best explanations of the show. (The Van Dyke Family roadshow perhaps? Given that at least two of Barry's children turn up in the series and Dick's brother turns up as Mark's brother...)
