=============================================================================

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.

      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.

   From TV Guide "This Week - Hits & Misses"  Reviews by Jeff Jarvis
           Oct. 16, 1993

      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.

Synopsis:
   DA Littleton (Don Cheadle) prepares for a showdown with Wambaugh

   a lack of hard evidence.  Kimberly:  Holly Marie Combs.

   From TV Guide "Friday Guidelines":
      The Defendant in a Rome, Wis., murder trial isn't a celebrity
      like O.J. Simpson, but his case bears a resemblance to the
      football star's.  Among the similarities:  physical evidence that
      can purportedly link the accused to the victim and the crime
      scene, but not necessarily to the crime.
