YMMV: Quincy
  • Anvilicious: Particularly in the later seasons, nearly every episode took on a "cause" of some sort. Whether ghost surgery, advertising alcohol on TV, Drugs Are Bad, or fraternity hazing, there was always some cause-of-the-week that the show tried to hammer home its message about as unsubtly as possible.
    • It didn't help that Quincy (and in one episode Asten) was not above delivering speeches about the subject.
  • Seasonal Rot: Quite a few people find the later seasons less enjoyable because of their tendency towards preachiness.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: "What Happened To Morris Perlmutter?", in which a gripping murder mystery is inexplicably sidelined in favour of a PSA about the title character's hearing for almost the entire episode. (Why yes, this is from the final season, how'd you guess?)
