  • Help me detective Murdoch I've lost my head can you help me find it?????

    Season 8 of Murdoch Mysteries I have found very enjoyable! Last night's episode was edgy and had lots of plot twists and turns. The actors are genuine. This also with the realistic settings and costumes makes the show very authentic. I am a fan and know there are many more Murdoch Mysteries to tell. Lots more things will unravel this season. I commend all the actors, writers and crew on their fine work. Continued success to Murdoch Mysteries. Living in Ontario I thoroughly enjoy all the location shoots of the beautiful province I live in. Regards Marilynn Monnier.moreless
  • My least favourite show on television.


    Artistic cinematography, scenes are well shot and lit.

    Well constructed costumes, they seem time appropriate and suit the character wearing them.

    Realistic sets, they make you feel like you're there.

    Beautiful scenery.

    The plot is not too bad.


    The characters bore me and I have no sympathy with them which to me is unforgivable in a show. Murdock is so clever he can make others look stupid, he is too nice to be realistic and he appears to have no flaws. The main villain seems irredeemable; he is an eccentric sadist, who is either scheming or manipulating people all the time because... he is evil (which is a stupid reason)! So he must be completely bad and unforgivable because complex characters are so droll (Sarcasm). I also hated how they added homosexuality to his list of flaws in what appears to be a failed attempt to make him edgy. DS9 had flawed, deep and complex characters.

    The dialogue irks me too. The very worst line to me was the one about Coffee not catching on and the way in which it was delivered. It felt like it was winking at the audience and didn't sound natural to me. Mad Men is much better at referencing at the future . copy machines). However there are exceptions; I did enjoy hearing about the blonde lady speak about her father and I did feel bad for her to do the autopsy on him but it was an exception.

    I admit to not having seen many episodes, I apologize for not remembering all the characters names, I understand that some of you are fans of the show and all the power to you, it's just not for me and I merely wanted to show an alternate perspective. Have a nice day. :)moreless
  • Bad choice of words

    To whomever can change the scripts the actors memorize. Look you don't need bad language to get your ratings up. Your program "Murdock" is I believe one of the most watched TV programs on the air. But tonight I was disappointed to hear the actor say, "goddam". Like that's an everyday norm. Well it may be to the actor but not to all your viewing audience. I'm one of I know many Christians who like the program but believe it would be viewed by the same audience without the language. Your last program I found it distasteful and offensive. So will we expect to hear this again? Maybe God doesn't mean anything to you but to us Christians who have been delivered from drugs, alcohol and other types of what the Bible calls sin, we love him. Will you please consider the Christian public who like the program and want to watch it? Will you dare to stand up for good clean morals we were made from. Was the world you live in founded in a garbage pit, I think not.

    Thank you for hearing my concernsmoreless
  • Why no info on TV dot com about season 7?

    Season 7 seems to have been ignored/overlooked by TV dot com - its already up to episode 9 and episode 10 is due to screen on the 6th of January but still no info?
  • Love Yannick Bisson!

    He's the reason I found this show. Hated I couldn't watch it in the US, but tickled Amazon Prime is carrying it.... completely hooked on the show. Love Helene Joy, too... will be watching for both of these fine actors in other stuff.
