The numbering system for Matlock is based on original airdates and is rather complicated. Those that were originally produced in two parts have two separate episode numbers but share a common title (e.g.: 8606 THE DON PART 1 and 8607 THE DON PART 2); the feature versions of these episodes are listed by title and have no episode numbers (e.g.: MATLOCK THE DON.) Those originally produced as features have only one episode number, broken into parts 1 and 2 for the one-hour versions (e.g.: 8701-1 THE BILLIONAIRE PART 1 and 8701-2 THE BILLIONAIRE PART 2); the feature versions of these episodes are listed by the original episode number (e.g.: 8701 THE BILLIONAIRE.)
