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 more than a decade. Usually set in the sleepy hamlet of Cabot Cove, this eighth season takes Jessica for forays into New York City. There she teaches a class in criminology and, of course, educates the local police in solving whodunits. Lansbury earned 12 Emmy nominations (one for each season) for her smart and warm portrayal of Jessica, but she was never rewarded for her efforts. This collection presents every episode from the show's eighth season.

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...The production values of this series are among the best I have seen. The pacing of the episodes are almost graceful, never rushing into a forced resolution but letting the clues simmer before piecing it all together. For a series to hold your attention without endless gunfights or car chases is amazing but this show demonstrates that it is possible. The focus is on plot and character interaction instead of the buckets of gore so many shows depend on. While many younger viewers may hold this series in some distain they should strongly reconsider their opinion. Quality shows no matter what the target demographic may be and this show is excellent.
