Jack Klugman (who received four Emmy nominations in the role) stars as the grumpy but righteous 'Quincy, M.E.' In this predecessor to other television programs like 'CSI' or 'Crossing Jordan', Quincy works for the Los Angeles coroner's department, where he is charged with performing autopsies and running other medical tests relating to criminal investigations. However, he's no regular doctor, for his brilliance often allows him to spy clues that detectives and other examiners have overlooked, leading him to examine cases further. 'Quincy' took the suspense and mystery of other crime shows and spun it by having the investigation begin with forensics evidence, and took a step further by exploring difficult social issues and taboos. Features the first 17 episodes of the landmark program, with guest stars such as June Lockhart, Van Johnson, Jamie Lee Curtis, Adrienne Barbeau, and many others.
