Product Overview

Sharpen your senses and be on the look-out for clues in the compelling fifth season of the Emmy Award-winning series Murder, She Wrote, starring Golden Globe winner Angela Lansbury. This five-disc set features all 22 Season Five episodes that take TV's famous novelist-turned-detective, Jessica Fletcher, from not-so-sleepy Cabot Cove to the dangerous bright lights of New York City and beyond. From uncovering false fortune seekers to tracking down two-faced killers, Jessica is always there to catch the culprit and pen the final solution to the case. Giving their alibis in these entertaining episodes are an incredible group of guest stars, including Megan Mullaly, Erin Gray, Roddy McDowall, Bill Maher, Dinah Shore, Paul Sorvino, Shelley Fabares, and many more. A new chapter begins on DVD for one of TV's most sensational sleuths ever!

Editors Note
Note There's little doubt that Jessica Fletcher's name belongs in the fictional detectives' hall of fame with such legends as Sherlock Holmes, Miss Marple, and Nancy Drew. Played by Angela Lansbury, the writer-detective was the center of MURDER, SHE WROTE, a mystery series that ran for 12 years. The fifth season finds Jessica solving crimes from her home town of Cabot Cove to the gritty streets of New York City. Future stars like Megan Mullally and Bill Maher made guest appearances, as did veteran actors like Roddy McDowall and Dinah Shore. Lansbury earned 12 nominations for her smart and warm portrayal of Jessica (one for each season), but she was never rewarded for her deserving efforts.

Reviews
ReviewSource Home Theater Info
Review While so many television networks pander to the all too often puerile tastes of the younger viewers, CBS saw fit to present several series geared towards the older members of the audience. One of the most notable of these mystery series was Murder, She Wrote. As many television shows moved towards the edge, frequently pushing the boundaries of what was acceptable this series started out always tasteful and remained such through out the almost dozen years it was on the air. This in itself was quite an accomplishment, quality television that lasted through the years.
