Bob Sassone over at TV Squad fondly remembers the short-lived (two episodes and out) 1992 series THE FIFTH CORNER, which starred Alex MacArthur and Kim Delaney.

Here’s another show that was ahead of its time. I can really picture
this on the air now, as an unfolding mystery that gets a lot of online
attention, fan sites, and speculation, like Lost or Alias.

Like most of America, I never saw THE FIFTH CORNER. The familiar concept was straight out of a 1950s Gold Medal paperback: a guy wakes up in bed with a dead woman beside him and has no memory of who he is or how he got there. Hijinks ensue. But Bob isn’t the only one who fondly remembers the show. One of the background extras on the series writes on his website about copping a feel from Kim Delaney.

  1. Yeah, the inexperience of nonunion extras personified. My four-year career started after this guy’s ended. No “feels” per se but Calista Flockhart stroked my leg in a bar scene and kept apologizing. And doing it over again. I would have preferred Courtney Thorne-Smith who was sitting out of reach but what can you do?

  2. The FIFTH CORNER pilot was playing frequently on cable awhile back, if anyone’s interested. I never got around to watching it, but I was intrigued. I think it was Encore Mystery, so check your listings.
