YMMV / Diagnosis: Murder

  • Fridge Logic: At the end of "The Bela Lugosi Blues" how were they supposed to explain Jack killing Moriah Thomas in self defense? Surely the courts wouldn't believe she was a vampire.
    • In "Blood Ties" if the motive of the killers was to get organs from donors, why not shoot people in the head or neck to make sure they didn't damage anything they might need?
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In "The Roast", Tim Conway's character is recognized by someone as the voice of a cartoon character. That same year, Conway started voicing Barnacle Boy.
    • In "Living on the Streets Can Be Murder", Bryan Cranston plays a homeless man named Walter.
  • More Popular Spin-off: of Jake and the Fatman. It probably didn't help, however, that Jake and the Fatman was never rerun after its original broadcast on CBS.
  • Narm Charm: Charlton Heston as a Knight Templar/Sympathetic Murderer judge. On the one hand, he talks as if he's merely doing a narration instead of actually playing an character. But on the other hand, he just sounds so cool doing it that you can't help but continue watching him.
  • Narrowed It Down to the Guy I Recognize: One episode features Roma Downey and Corinne Bohrer as former sorority sisters of Amanda's, who are both suspects in the murder of a woman who was blackmailing them. Corinne's character turns out to be the murderer.
    • Played with in "Discards," in which involves a group of ex-spies being hunted down, And shown on the main page, the guest stars played spies on TV... the killer is played by Phil Morris, who also played a spy on TV - but in the 1980s on the revival of Mission: Impossible; he's the only one who didn't play a TV spy in the 1960s.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: "Murder in the Dark" had a surgeon being confronted over his alcoholism. Dick Van Dyke battled this disease himself.
    • One episode dealt with the subject of hospitals intentionally delaying medical treatment, letting people die so they can save money.
