  • Agnes wins a contest, but her favorite crime story comes to life.

    Blue Moon receptionist Agnes Dipesto wins a contest for fans of mystery writer J.B. Harland. Entrants get to solve a case staged on board a train. The secretary is pleased as punch until the guest of honor, Mr. Harland himself, turns up with a very real knife in his body. The train has started to move, so Dipesto and her bosses, David and Maddie, cannot stop to get the police. They must work together to figure out which of the fellow passengers is responsible for the deed. Along the way, Agnes and company learn some unpleasant truths about love, jealousy, deception and overpass bridges.



    Very clever, well-written and briskly paced. This is the first time since maybe the second episode that Agnes gets to be more than a comic relief stint. Perhaps the best show of the brief first season.moreless
