Editorial Reviews

It takes a legend to play one! Andy Griffith brings his special brand of charm to the role of Ben Matlock, prominent defense attorney. In this 5-disc set, Matlock: The Seventh Season sees Ben reopening a 30-year-old murder case, representing a ghost, and learning to work with his daughter and new partner, Leanne (Brynn Thayer). This year, his trusted colleague Conrad McMasters (Clarence Gilyard, Jr.) is joined by recent law school graduate Cliff Lewis (Daniel Roebuck). Using his street-savvy tactics and down-home instincts, Matlock always knows how to captivate a jury… and generations of audiences.

After hearing the rumours that season 7 would possibly not be released, I was thrilled to see that they did. Many times I started a collection of my favourite shows(NYPD BLUE and MAMA'S FAMILY I'am looking at you!) only to have subsequent seasons just stop coming out. I love Matlock and although I definitely did not enjoy the show as much with Jerri Stone, I will definitely be buying this season and season 8 for sure. And since I hate it that Amazon does not list the episodes, I will do so here. From what I could find online and from what I remember, here are season 7's episodes

Although, Brynn Thayer was my personal least favorite of the Matlock partners, she does deliver a great performance as LeeAnne McIntyre. The seventh season also the first appearance of Cliff Lewis portrayed by actor Daniel Roebuck, which had appeared in previous episodes as other characters as did Thayer. This like other previous Matlock packages has superior acting & direction of episodes and yes just like Thayer & Roebuck both who appeared as other characters in previous seasons, you will also see others such as Randy Travis. Just as with TAGS, Matlock does have a musical flare whenever possible. You cannot go wrong with this set or any of the Matlock sets for that matter. Of course, I cannot leave out the most important acting of Andy Griffith as Ben Matlock, a super sleuth, brilliant lawyer and hot dog lover.

The most memorable show is "The Ghost." In this whimsical episode, a man has been receiving anonymous letters accusing his wife of infidelity, they argue about it, she shoves him, he falls, she leaves, and before he can get up someone murders him. She's accused of his murder and believes she was responsible for his death. His ghost wants Ben to defend her! Many funny moments.

This season's supporting characters:
Leanne McIntyre (10 shows), Ben's daughter/associate. In "The Debt", she defends her ex and in the process, learns her Dad was right - he's a bum!
Conrad McMasters (4), Ben's investigator. In "The Final Affair", he gets to sing in the church choir.
Cliff Lewis (4). In "The Vacation", he tried to trick Ben into hiring him, but ended up needing Ben to defend him.
Billy Lewis (2), Cliff's father. In "The Fortune", he can't convince Ben to invest in a new doll; it does well ... until he's sued.
Russ Lewis (1), Billy's brother. In "The Competition", he is Ben's worst nightmare for a houseguest.
Charlie Matlock (1), Ben's father (played by Andy Griffith). In "The Legacy", he was accused of committing a murder years ago!

Alas, these characters "did not return" in season seven: detective Lt. Bob Brooks, associate Michelle Thomas, prosecutor Julie March, neighbor Les Calhoun (Don Knotts), and housekeeper Miss McCardle.

Comment: There is an apparent gradual shift from stories in and around Atlanta to the Atlantic coast.
Extras: Episode teasers. To see these, you must select individual episodes, not the "Play All" option.
DVD - 2012. Color, Contrast, and Resolution: good to excellent. Sound: volume normal; clarity excellent.

I love the Matlock series and the interesting way they evolve the characters as well as the Great Plot lines and the humor added here and there... Good news is that there are 9 seasons of shows - bad news is that there are only 9 seasons of this series. A real Thumbs up to Andy Griffith for a 2nd wonderful TV show.

I bought this to add to my Matlock collection. Growing up, my kids knew better than to interrupt mom during Matlock, and this was largely a nostalgia purchase. The later seasons are still good, but it's obvious that the series was winding down. Still, it's a lot of fun.

I really love all of the Matlock Series. Can't wait for Season 8 and 9 to come out. Sorry to hear of Andy Griffith's passing. We can still enjoy his shows on DVD . He can still make us laugh and enjoy his wonderful acting.

One of my favorite episodes of Matlock was The Ghost episode. I just didn't know in what season they made it. So it was a very good surprise to me when I found it in this season. Each season of Matlock is great but each one has those very special episodes that made it all great. And season 7 is no different. On to season 8 now.

I am working my way through the seventh season of Matlock and have yet to be disappointed. Writers of today's television shows should take lessons from the writers of Matlock. This is a truly down home type of show that really appeals to family values. I enjoy watching Ben's interactions with the other characters and the way he solves cases in his "gruff" manner. If I have any disappointments they are that the character Michelle Thomas disappeared at the end of season 6 and that Julie Marsh, Ben's love interest and ADA was also written out of the series. Way to go on a great series.
