    =============================================================================
    
    Broadcasts were at 10:00 PM Eastern unless otherwise indicated.  The episode
    capsule summaries are based on the summaries in _TV Guide_.  The number
    [n.kk] in brackets at the beginning of the line with the episode title
    is an informal episode number in which 'n' denotes the season number and
    'kk' is the episode number within the season in order of original airdate.
    The number [#nKmm] after the title is the production number appearing in
    the end credits; in a few cases these may be in error because of the
    difficulty of reading the number.  Titles were obtained from the _Boston
    Globe_ TV section; I thank Loren Heisey for providing some of the
    episode titles and for alerting me to the new TV ads.

       From TV Guide "Friday Guidelines":
          Emmy-winning producer David E. Kelley is leaning on *Picket
          Fences* to become the hit his *L.A. Law* was.  The quirky
          comedy-drama about the sometimes dark side of small-town life
          in a fictional Wisconsin burg gets a two-hour debut tonight.
          Tom Skerritt stars as the town's top cop.

          Picket Fences (Fri., CBS) - it can be difficult for an amazing
          series to keep amazing us, but that's what *Fences* does in
          its season premiere.  The mayor kills a carjacker - after
          the thug dropped his weapon - and even as the townsfolk call the
          mayor a hero, the sheriff (Tom Skerritt) arrests him for murder.
          Don't miss it!  My score:  10.
    
       From TV Guide "Friday Guidelines":
          Triple Emmy winner *Picket Fences* begins its second season with
          an intense episode about self-defence and the letter of the law:
          Sheriff Brock orders the mayor arrested for murder after he
          kills a disarmed carjacker.
