Ellison’s Law
Even for the early 1960s, Burke’s Law was a silly gimmick show.
The gimmick?  Millionaire Amos Burke, despite inheriting fabulous wealth, always wanted to be a detective so he joined the LAPD and worked his way up to captain of the homicide bureau.
Basically Batman without the trauma or costume.
And like Batman of a few years later, an exercise in camp.
The show was rigidly formulaic, but for practical reasons.  It relied heavily on stunt casting celebrities as suspects or witnesses and as such it had to be flexible enough to handle rewrites and re-castings in the middle of production.
The typical episode began with someone found murdered or shown getting killed in some unusual manner, cut to Amos Burke flirting with a lady only to be called away by his police duties.  Cue the opening title as Burke and his driver hurry out of his relatively modest Beverly Hills mansion to his Rolls-Royce (actually producer Aaron Spelling’s car which he rented back to the production) as a sultry female voice incants:  “It’s Burke’s Law” then after the first commercial break Burke arrives at the scene of the crime and finds clues pointing him to four or five suspects.
Said suspects are the celebrity guest stars, recruited either to give them some manic scenery chewing time or -- more rarely -- an intense dramatic scene.
After three more commercial breaks, Burke intones one of his “laws” (“Burke’s law:  Never ask a question where you don’t already know the answer.”), pulls a rabbit out of his hat / solution out of his butt, and fingers that episode’s duly appointed murderer.
The problem with the series as a whole is that it could never quite decide on what tone it wanted to take and stick with it consistently.  The British series The Avengers found the perfect balance of tongue-in-cheek / derring-do but Burke’s Law bounced all over the spectrum, frequently in the same episode.
So why bring up this mediocre TV show at all?
Two words:  Harlan Ellison
. . .
I’ve posted many times before on Harlan’s career and the impact of his writing and friendship on me.
He was in the mid 1960s at his zenith as a TV writer, and while his writing career as a whole encompasses so much more than that, his brief run as one of the meteors streaking across the Hollywood sky only lasted 4 years.
Oh, he kept writing for TV after that, but the old zing was gone.  He supplied stories for other series, created and fought hard to keep The Starlost on track but eventually had to walk away from that heartbreak, adapted several of his own short stories to a Twilight Zone revival, as well as numerous development deals that went nowhere (including two great ideas for The Name Of The Game, another Gene Barry series, that would have fit perfectly into that show’s oeuvre).
If you find his second book of TV criticism, The Other Glass Teat, check out his first draft for “The Whimper Of Whipped Dogs” episode of The Young Lawyers (not to be confused with his short story of the same title).
It’s one of the most powerful / gut wrenching things you’ll ever read…
…but by the time the studio and the network got through with it, the final product was virtually unrecognizable…and unwatchable.
Such was Harlan’s fate after 1967 in Clown Town (as he referred to it).
But from 1963 to 1967, he was golden.
. . . 
Harlan’s rocky personal history went through many highs and lows before coming to Hollywood in 1962.
Harlan’s first breakthrough as a writer was with his series of stories and essays on juvenile crime in New York in the early and mid-1950s..
Drafted in 1957. following his discharge, he settled in Chicago with his second wife and her son, editing Rogue magazine, a  Playboy imitator.
Feeling his personal life becoming untenable, he called in favors from a friend, drove out to California with his soon-to-be ex-wife and stepson (aware the marriage was over, she also wanted to relocate away from Chicago), made his first sale to TV (his short story “No Fourth Commandment” to the TV show Route 66), then briefly found a sweet spot with Burke’s Law, writing four teleplays for their first season.
Burke’s Law is a good crucible for examination because of its silly, gimmicky nature and rigid format requirements.
These scripts represent a pivotal point in Harlan’s writing career, but more importantly, they mark the only sustained run he enjoyed on a non-anthology show, and as such make a good benchmark in comparing his growth as a writer and how his unique perspective played out in in relation to the constraints of episodic television.
While a couple of Harlan’s better science fiction / fantasy stories were written before 1963, the meteoric rise of his career in those genres began with his classic short story “’Repent, Harlequin!’ Said The Ticktockman” in 1965, followed by a host of other groundbreaking short stories and novellas, and his original anthologies Dangerous Visions and Again, Dangerous Visions in which he recruited other science fiction and fantasy writers -- many of them already well established pros -- to follow the path he blazed in the genre.
His experience on Burke’s Law occurs squarely between what he once was to what he was becoming, and as such is worthy of attention.
SPOILER: There are no great hidden gems here.
There’s a lot of amusing writing, and a few flashes of the emotional intensity Harlan could provide, but by and large this is journeyman level stuff:  Better than most, but not the best.
. . .
”Who Killed Alex Debbs?” was his first script for the series, and he pitched it to producer Aaron Spelling at a cattle call after a screening of the show’s pilot episode.  
Harlan jump started the pitch process by improvising an idea off the cuff at the end of the screening, and Spelling took him to his office to hear how Harlan planned to resolve it, then hired him on the spot.
It’s unclear if Harlan was actually a staff writer on the series or simply hung out at the studio a lot, but he used his skills as a quick study to start working his way up the food chain.
His first script fulfills all the requirements of a Burke’s Law episode and shows off two of Harlan’s main strengths:  An ability to hone in on intense emotion and a keen eye for the culture around him (in this case, very specifically Hollywood of the early 1960s).
On the downside, logic gaps render this story more implausible than most -- and as noted, Burke’s Law as a series wasn’t famous for its plausibility.
A flaw of almost all Burke’s Law episodes is that the victim is typically found dead under mysterious / bizarre circumstances, and the impression we get of them is constructed entirely through the words of suspects and witnesses.
It’s not an unworkable approach, but not the best suited for episodic television.
In this instance. victim Alex Drebbs is a Hugh Hefner-like men’s magazine publisher and monarch of a mini-empire of key clubs ala the Playboy Clubs of the era.  Harlan captures that milieu well but here’s where the logic gaps hit hard:  There’s no way a Hefner-like figure would be alone long enough for someone to kill him without being noticed, there’s no way his disappearance wouldn’t be immediately noticed by employees needing his attention, and it sure as hell wouldn’t have happened in a deserted club on the afternoon of its big opening.
On the plus side, there are some great character scenes including Arlene Dahl as a bitter ex-investor in Debbs empire now reduced to licking saving stamps to keep her decay mansion in repair, Burgess Meredith as a men’s magazine cartoonist who is nothing but a  bundle of neurotic twitches and tics, and finally Sammy Davis Jr as Cordwainer Bird, the humor editor for Debbs’ magazine.
This was at the Robin Williams stage of Davis career, when all you had to do was point a camera in his direction and let him go.  Harlan supplied the corny gags but Davis launched them over the top with his antics, and while he brings the proceedings to a complete disruptive halt, his brief scene is the most entertaining in the entire series.  (Harlan later used Cordwainer Bird as his WGA pseudonym when he wanted to indicate displeasure at what had been done to his scripts.)
By his own account, Harlan had less luck with Diana Dors -- “the British Marilyn Monroe” -- and treated her condescendingly during the shoot.  (By comparison, William Goldman in his memoir Adventures In The Screen Trade shows a much more sanguine / roll-with-the-punches attitude, and that might explain part of the reason his screenwriting trajectory was far different than Harlan’s.)
All in all, an uneven example of both the series and Harlan’s abilities.
. . . 
”Who Killed Purity Mather?” was Harlan’s second script for the series and one of the few that played with the rigid format of the series insofar as the victim is seen alive for a few moments before being killed in a rather sadistic and spectacular manner (splashed with acid then trapped in a burning house, and the high angle shot used to show her demise must have been incredibly risky -- and thus costly -- to film).
It also drops a very subtle clue that I’ll reveal in the footnote.*
This is Harlan going so far over the top he emerges on the other side.  Plotwise it features more logic gaps than his first script, but the whole thing is so silly it’s pointless to complain about it.
Purity Mather is a professional witch (!) who speeds up the investigation into her own demise by mailing Amos Burke a recording saying she’ll be killed along with a list of five possible suspects (that she doesn’t mention them by name in the recording reflects the show’s desire for standalone scenes, enabling them to recast and rewrite plotlines more easily; the scene where Burke reads the names to his team was doubtlessly shot after the guest cast was locked in).
Burke & co. start shaking down suspects, including Telly Savalas as Fakir George O'Shea, a Muslim holy man / cosmetics chemist (!!); Charlie Ruggles as I. A. Bugg, an eccentric elderly millionaire who likes to chase -- but not catch -- prostitutes around his apartment while dressed in lederhosen(!!!); Wally Cox as Count Carlo Szipesti, vampire for hire (!!!!); and Gloria Swanson as Venus Hekate Walsh a fright wig bedecked self-proclaimed goddess of free love (!!!!!).
The episode might as well have had a laugh track.  It’s amusing with several daft touches only Harlan could provide, but the daftness comes from his take on Hollywood culture of the time.
I’d go so far as to say elements of Cox and Swanson’s characters were based on real life people living in and around Hollywood at the time, in particular some science fiction fans Harlan had come in contact with.
It’s a romp but a disappointing one.  The logic gaps are too big in this one (case in point, if you’re the captain of the homicide bureau and you come home to see a masked figure climbing out of your second story window in broad daylight, you don’t simply shrug and let them run off) and the ending is one of those annoying ah-yes-now-that-you-caught-me-I-will-admit-everything-even-stuff-you-don’t-know cappers that Joe Ruby and Ken Spears would have rejected for Scooby Doo.
In short, a script whose parts are better than the whole.
. . .
”Who Killed Andy Zygmunt?" is another slight story that pays off with an insight into Hollywood pop culture of the era.  The victim is “a pop artist” (no, he’s not; he an assemblage sculptor) impaled on his own artwork.
He’s also revealed to be an extortionist who acquires embarrassing evidence that he affixes to his assemblages then blackmails his victims into buying the art to keep their secrets safe.
Once again Burke is conveniently handed a list of suspects, in this case the people who bought the last five pieces of art from the exhibit.
This is one of the few times the series had more than one suspect in the same scene as there’s a big gathering in Burke’s office midway through the story (it also includes Michael Fox, a semi-regular on the series playing the coroner, so it represents a pretty sizeable filming day for the show).  The suspects include Macdonald Carey as Burl Mason, the star of a popular TV detective show (Harlan gives his scenes what we would now call a meta-fiction touch by playing off Barry’s fictional TV detective dealing with a fictional fictional TV detective); Jack Weston as Silly McCree, a kid’s show host who destroys his career with an on air anti-child rant; Ann Blyth as Deirdre DeMara, a rival “pop artist” who creates her art by spraying women with paint and having them roll around on giant canvases (a gimmick later used in the bizarre 1966 Ann-Margaret comedy The Swinger); Aldo Ray as Mister Harold, former pro-wrestler turned poodle groomer; and Tab Hunter in a surprisingly well done scene as a sky diving playboy.
Hunter’s scene in particular shows Harlan getting his hyperbole under control, much more laconic and evocative than other characters he wrote for the series.  As mentioned above, Burke’s Law occurs just on the cusp of Harlan’s huge success in print; he’s beginning to harness the lessons learned to maximum effect.  (He would have some setbacks, too, in his screenwriting career, and to be honest part of that can be attributed to his failure to consistently apply the lessons learned, part of it can be attributed to his reputation preceding him, and part of it can be attributed to just bad luck.)
The motives this time are fairly edgy for a 1963 TV series, and combined with the slices of Los Angeles life Harlan provides give a fair example of the cultural zeitgeist of the era.
. . . 
”Who Killed ½ Of Glory Lee?” can be explained as Benjamin Glory, half owner of Glory Lee Fashions, with Gisele MacKenzie as the other half, Keekee Lee.
After breaking the budget with his spectacular demise of Purity Mather, Harlan staged this murder as an inexpensive off camera elevator plunge.
This time the plot is a wee bit more plausible, with control of a profitable business being the apparent motive for the murder.
But Harlan loaded up this episode with a more powerful emotional punch than most of his others, and while the dénouement may feel a bit farfetched, it certainly rings true emotionally.
He certainly gave Nina Foch and Anne Helm plenty to work with regarding their characters’ complicated mother / daughter relationship, yet at the same time found room for a playful scene in which Buster Keaton pantomimes his answers to Burke’s questions.
Yet at the same time one senses an impatience behind the keyboard.  The opening scene has a squad of female elevator operators (yes, once upon a time there needed to be somebody in the elevator to push the buttons for you) discussing pop culture references of a generation before -- Harlan’s generation.
And while the key emotional conflicts are played out well, several of the other scenes feel rather perfunctory…yet at the same time this is probably the most cohesive whole of any Burke’s Law script, whether written by Harlan or not.
It’s as if after a brief but profitable run on a network series, Harlan realized he’d absorbed as much of the practical end of the business as he could and his next moves should be into broader, edgier territory.
   © Buzz Dixon
   * SPOILER: Purity Mather is the murderer; she connives a career nudist (!!!!!!) to participate in a magic ceremony then disfigures and kills her, leaving evidence that she hopes will convince the police the body is hers.  The subtle clue Harlan drops is the victim, wearing a long black negligee, complaining about how she doesn’t like the feel of the clothes.  A nice touch, but undercut by Purity then going to the nudist camp her victim operates and waiting in the buff by the front gate for the police to show up and question the career nudist -- whom Purity has mentioned as a suspect in her faked murder.  While it works insofar as Purity doesn’t try to pass herself off to anyone else at the camp as the career nudist, it doesn’t scan that she would know when the police would come to investigate or if they could be easily convinced at the gate and not come in to question other patrons.

So I was thinking, maybe I could start writing Headcanons? Like I always wanted to do that, but according to many readers I easily forget some less important things and I was just not so sure, because I could easily forget something. But now Idrc, I can learn on my mistakes. So I have a proposition, I can start writing hc, but give me some suggestions in the comments. And if it works out, maybe I will start a book of fhdw one-shots on Wattpad and FanFiction.net.
So if you want a particular Headcanon just write it down below!

STANLEY KUBRICK E LARANJA MECÂNICA ( CLOCKWORK ORANGE)
Creio que poucos diretores foram capazes de traduzir em linguagem cinematográfica o espírito de uma época, ou seja a atmosfera da segunda metade do século XX, marcada por incertezas, violências, medos e questionamentos, do que Stanley Kubrick ( 1928-1999). Famoso pelo seu perfeccionismo, pelo caráter recruso, o “mestre das marionetes” construiu através de seus filmes uma estética que influenciaria decisivamente o olhar cinematográfico, alem de nos conduzir a um questionamento da própria condição humana com seu ceticismo ilimitado. Nascido em New York, Kubrick produziu seus primeiros trabalhos nos estados unidos ao longo dos anos 50 do ultimo século. Destacam-se nesse período seu primeiro longa Fear and Desire ( 1953), A Morte passou por perto (1955), o Grande Golpe ( 1956), Gloria feita de Sangue ( 1957) e seu polêmicio Spartacus ( 1960).
Mas foi após mudar-se para Inglaterra em busca de um ambiente cultural mais compatível com seu temperamento e cansado da censura enfrentada nos Estados Unidos, que produziu seus trabalhos mais relevantes e fascinantes. Destaco aqui apenas aqueles que me marcaram: 2001: Uma Odisséia no Espaço (1968), Laranja Mecânica (1971), O Iluminado ( 1980), Nascido para Matar (1987) e seu último filma De Olhos bem Fechados ( 1999). Mas caso me fosse solicitado para eleger um dos seus trabalhos para representar o conjunto de sua obra escolheria sem pestanejar Clockwork Orange ( Laranja Mecânica).
Adaptação do romance de Anthony Burgess (1917-1993), o filme é essencialmente um tratado sobre a violência e a natureza humana. A transgressora violência do individuo, instintiva é contraposta a bem intencionada violência de Estado, para qual os direitos do próprio indivíduo, são “relativos”.
Assim temos de inicio as ações de Alex DeLarge (Malcolm McDowel) a frente de sua gangue de delinqüentes, os droogs (palavra originária do russo druk, amigo)** em uma Inglaterra futurista de grandes conjuntos habitacionais e precário ordenamento social. O gosto pela musica clássica do personagem, amante de Beethoven e especialmente sua 5º Sinfonia, sugere também uma promiscua relação entre civilização e barbárie que perpassa toda a narrativa. Em um segundo momento, de cruel algoz, Alex torna-se vitima do sistema e da sociedade através de um programa experimental, para corrigir seu comportamento violento e transgressor, que nada mais é do que uma lavagem cerebral. Seu caso acaba transformando-se em arma política partidária em mesquinhas disputas de poder das quais o personagem acaba sabendo tirar proveito com significativa eficácia.
Censurado no próprio Reino Unido e em muitos paises após o seu lançamento em 1971, Laranja Mecânica é ainda hoje considerado um filme demasiada e assustadoramente violento. Mas a violência aqui é mais alegórica do que realista, articulando uma narrativa bizarra, cruel, cômica e psicodélica que nos desafia a encarar a face absurda do mundo em que vivemos e os abismos da própria condição humana. Ainda somos de muitas maneiras contemporâneos dessa perturbadora obra. Carlos Pereira Jr * Kubrick era um devorador de livros. Não por acaso, boa parte de seus filmes são adaptações de obras literárias. Nem sempre compreendidas pelos autores... ** Alex se expressa inicialmente através do "Nadsat", um "idioma" que mistura o russo, o inglês inventado por Burgess .

On Our Merry Way is an American comedy film from 1948. It stars Paulette Goddard as Martha Pease, Burgess Meredith as Oliver M. Pease, James Stewart as Slim, Henry Fonda as Lank Solsky, Harry James as himself, Dorothy Lamour as Gloria Manners, Victor Moore as Ashton Carrington, and Fred MacMurray as Al.
Plot
Oliver Pease has deceived his bride Martha into believing he's an inquiring reporter for the Los Angeles Daily Banner when, in fact, he is employed there as a classified ads clerk. When Martha suggests Oliver ask people on the street, "What influence has a baby had on your life?," he submits the question to the real reporter, who dismisses it outright. Oliver approaches the editor and introduces himself as a representative of the publisher, who he claims wants to improve the feature by having Oliver roam the city and ask the question suggested by his wife.
Jazz musicians Slim and Lank mistake the word "baby" for "babe" and reminisce about a female trumpeter they met when their tour bus broke down in a rundown California seaside resort, where they tried to fix a talent contest so the mayor's son would win.
In a story similar to the O. Henry short story "The Ransom of Red Chief", successful stage magician Al relates how he and his buddy Floyd once were con artists who stumbled upon young runaway and practical joker Edgar Hobbs in the woods. Upon learning he lived with his wealthy banker uncle, they conspired to return the boy and claim a reward, only to discover his uncle did not want him back. All ended well when Al married Edgar's sister and made the two siblings part of his magic act.
At the end of the day, Oliver returns to the newspaper only to discover he's been fired from his real job for being AWOL. When he tells his wife what has happened, she surprises him by telling him she has known all along about his job and does not mind in the least. The paper's editor, impressed by the notes Oliver made while talking to his various subjects, arrives to tell him he likes his column and plans to print it, and asks how he thought of the question in the first place. Martha confesses it came to her because she's going to have a baby.

What are you most hoping will happen in book 5?
Ooh thanks for the ask! (Sorry it took like way forever, kinda lame-o...)
Hmmmmm I really want some cute Kendra and Seth sibling togetherness (ESPECIALLY AFTER THOSE LAST FEW PAGES OF COTTG!!! Seth needs hugs, I demand it).
I’d also like the people still stuck at Wyrmroost to, you know, like have some legit part in the series. Like super awesome scene or something where they like I dunno break out or take part in the grand plan (“We can take them. You guys go on.” *epicness*) I mean Stan is the captain of the knights of the dawn (Maybe they gather up all the knights of something and it’s this big epic showdown). Ruth is a burgess (and has wicked crossbow skills and all that jazz) Hank and Gloria kinda sorta infiltrated Living Mirage/the Evening Star. They gotta be able to do something cool.
Also hope for more big stuff for Knox and Tess too.
Ooh I’m super excited now. Brandon mull and the last book in a series, heck yes. He’s so great 😄
