Show Summary

Murder seems to follow Jessica Fletcher, a former English teacher and a mystery writer full of charm, zest-for-life, and personality; who happens to become "the investigator" when traveling around the country to promote a series of novels. Murder always occurs when she is present. Even in Cabot Cove! Although Angela Lansbury was the only regular character throughout the series entire run, she was frequently joined by a number of recurring and special guest stars, including Tom Bosley as Sheriff Amos Tupper in the early seasons and Ron Masak as Sheriff Mort Metzger in the later seasons, William Windom as Dr. Seth Hazlitt, Michael Horton as her nephew Grady Fletcher (one of her many, many relatives), and from time to time Jerry Orbach would appear as private eye Harry McGraw. Orbach's role later led into a short-lived spin-off, The Law & Harry McGraw. The series aired a total of 263 color episodes from 7 October 1984 through 19 May 1996 and five telemovies (including the pilot movie, which aired in September of 1984). As of the fall of 2009, 10 seasons have been released on DVD, with the 11th season due to be released in early 2010.moreless

  • The Cabot Cove stories were my favorite.

    8.0
    I didn't know Hallmark was going to stop showing the episodes. If I had known, I would have recorded my favorite episodes of Murder She Wrote. Apparently, that was only temporary, hopefully Hallmark will keep showing her shows. This weekend, July 19 and 20 will be Murder She Wrote marathon.
  • best suspense tv series!

    Despite the fact that the concept of this show is imaginary; I would have to say that this is one of the best TV series ever made. Suspense and enetertainment in one show whp wouldn't fall for that? Angela Lansbury played great from the first up to the last episode. I won't spoil anymore for those who haven't watched yet the whole episodes. Being a fan of this great crime show I looked for a great copy so I don't have to wait for the re-runs. Luckily, I saw this being sold at dvdbooth dot com which happens to provide a very excellent shipping time. Upon checking the discs, it was surprising to see it's in good shape and great quality. It has also the complete episodes, I'm really satisfied with this purchase because I will able to play this show how many times I wanted in our DVD player. There is nothing in the TV show nowadays you can compare to this show in terms of clean watching.moreless
  • The mysteries of Jessica Fletcher.

    10
    This is the single most greatest mystery show ever! It's one of my all-time favorite show. You really get into the storyline and you feel like your mind is going through every single clue trying to piece together. I don't even mind watching the reruns, even knowing who is the criminal. That's extremely rare to find in a mystery show. I really wish they make more mystery shows like that than the ones like CSI because it deals more with people and how they think instead with actual physical evidence. It reminds me of those old detective style books they used to have. It's a must see show!moreless
  • Um, what?

    7.0
    I was really too young to realize the basics for this show. I actually found it quite boring and I couldn't think of the reasons why it was a television show. All I really understood was that there was a murder of some sort and it had to be solved some way. The old lady was really boring. I think I never watched a full episode because it just was too boring for my liking. The only reason I tried to watch was because there was nothing else on television. Overall, I must say that it wasn't a bad show as I think that it was okay for what it was supposed to be. Thank you.moreless
  • A classic, but seasons 1-7 are the best

    8.5
    I have been working my way through the DVD sets and it has been wonderful to watch. I love Angela Lansbury - she was so charming in every episode and created a wonderful character in JB Fletcher. It's historically interesting to watch all the old sexist comments and eighties and nineties feminist push back ... and then there is JB Fletcher who really is from a whole different era than we are now. The murder mysteries are sometimes good sometimes extremely predictable or silly, but watching JB deal with all the different guest stars and solve them is somehow lots of fun regardless. But, after season seven the quality of the writing really does drop off.moreless
