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.
