Never saw many episodes, though I liked what I saw. Mainly started when ‘Ace’ moved in next door and jumped ship for Diagnosis Murder. Still, wanted to see how I’d do given I know a few bits of his love of hot dogs. Goes to NY in one episode and finds it horrifying that a street vendor dog is $2.25 or something and in another he goes on vacation with his daughter and stocks his fridge with only hit dogs and buns. XD

Got 8/20...better than I thought I would.

I got 13/20. I watched "Matlock" for awhile but I lost interest. I might start watching it again.
