* DamselScrappy: Charlene

to:

* DamselScrappy: CharleneCharlene. She's a constant victim of capture, and when she leaves the show, Michelle picks up the role.
* GrowingTheBeard: Arguably, Season 7, when the show made a ChannelHop to ABC. The supporting cast was reset (Julie Sommars and Nancy Stafford wanted to spend more time with their families and Clarence Gilyard was now heavily involved with ''Series/WalkerTexasRanger''.) and the series started to detach itself from [[StrictlyFormula formulaic]] stories. It also stopped being hammy for the most part and started to add some real depth to the cast. The addition of [[SitcomArchnemesis Billy Lewis]] also helped to liven things up by featuring a lot of amusing friction between him and Ben. There was also the character arc Cliff went through as Ben's understudy.



* SoBadItsGood: The show is full of over-the-top pastiche characters and a lot of courtroom antics, but who doesn't love a good murder mystery? It's a surprisingly enjoyable romp that is one of the few show's with Fred Silverman's name attached to it which isn't defamed as a spectacular dud.

* NightmareFuel: "The Dare"'s ending, specifically the final line: "[[spoiler:What are you gonna do, Ben? Get me the death sentence? [[LethalDiagnosis I've already got it]]]]". Yikes.

* Just pretend that you're a lawyer for the prosecution when you watch this. Then call out "Objection!" every time that a real prosecutor would during Matlock's questioning of witnesses. It will make you hoarse.
