Quincy M.E. – Next Stop, Nowhere (1982) – The Infamous Punk Episode

After a teenager named Zack (Kelly Ward) dies while slam-dancing at a busy disco, it is determined that the cause of death was a stabbing. But Quincy (Jack Klugman) isn’t satisfied by this verdict: he claims that the real villain is Punk Rock, whose “suicidal” lyrics have transformed otherwise normal kids into ticking time bombs. Things get personal when Zack’s girlfriend Abby, a patient of psychiatrist Emily Hanover (Anita Gillette), falls under the spell of a particularly venal punk-rock group called “Mayhem.” “Next Stop, Nowhere” is to Quincy, M.E. what the “Blue Boy” episode was to Dragnet–a well-intentioned expose of a public “menace” that has in recent years become a camp classic, to be mocked and ridiculed by the allegedly more enlightened viewers of the present day. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
