    I’m trying to figure out how to express my excitement/love/feelings-of-kindred/nerdgasm without sounding weird. HOLY CRAP I LOVE YOUR BLOG. I’m literally going to go watch another episode of Murder She Wrote RIGHT NOW.

    Murder, She Wrote used to air when I was a child and when Netflix recommended it I started watching it out of nostalgia. After I stumbled across your blog, I began reading each entry while watching the corresponding episode. And I’m really loving it! Not only are your recaps really funny, but your images! Hahahahaha! So I just wanted to write you a line to let you know that your blog entries are hilarious, and much appreciated.

    Happy birthday (late)! Lately I’ve been dreaming of owning a Cabot Cove Neighborhood Watch t-shirt. Any chance of this happening?

      Thank you!

      Oh goodness! That’s an amazing idea! I have zero t-shirt designing abilities though 😦 Let me think about it!

    Just want to say I love your blog. Huge fan of Murder She wrote, 23 year young woman here, my friends say I must have an old soul because Angela is my favorite<3 This is one of the best scripted & plotted shows of all time, I love playing along and trying to solve each mystery. Your blog is super funny and I love all your captioned pictures. I hope you keep this up! 🙂

      Oh thanks Brittany! Glad to have you on board! And no, they certainly don’t make shows like this anymore, which is a shame.

    For some reason I’m not exactly sure of, i started watching Murder, She Wrote on DVD. In looking up into on various actors who looked familiar and other info on M,SW I discovered your blog. I enjoy it very much, you are a good writer and very clever.

    I watched this every Sunday Night during the 80s and 90s in the U.S. except the year I spent in Brizzy as an exchange student from 87-88. Now it is on in the late evenings on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries. I enjoy reading your blogs as I watch it- lol.

    Briony I don’t know where you get your patience from but I 💖love the amount of detail that you put into every episode. Its great to find someone that loves MSW as much as I do, or more!
    There are of course favourites like “Mr Penroys vacation” or “If its Thursday it must be Beverley” and many more. I just love the faces Jessica pulls!
    Oh, 3 episodes are on back to back on 5USA weekdays March 2019 and from the beginning!!. I’ve seen them all but I cant help watching them again.
    I love Mary’s message from Nov 2013 !
    Keep on keeping on
    😍Loving your Work 💖

    Where do you watch Seasons 6-12? Seasons 1-5 are now on Amazon Prime, but I cannot seem to find the rest. Am I going to have to just buy the dvd’s you think? BTW – love your blog. It’s refreshing to find someone who loves these episodes and finds them as comforting and cozy as I do, while also still providing an entertaining critique.

      I bought all the DVDs! But someone on here might be able to help.

      I, too, am so annoyed that only 1-5 are streaming! I hear they were on Netflix before this and perhaps it was the entire run. DVDs are so passe, haha. 🙂

    I was just watching a video by Pushing Up Roses about the Death Takes A Dive episode and found your blog quite handy for figuring out what the other roles played by Michael McGrady were so I could bore people in the comments.

    Briony, I found your blog just as I began an epic binge of the series about a month ago. I’m only a few years older than you, and have fond memories watching MSW when it was on with my grandmother and mother after the former would come over for her weekly dinner with us. Tom Bosley also bears a striking resemblance to my deceased father (I don’t mean that to sound depressing, it’s actually rather comforting!). Your writing is detailed, subversive, and endlessly amusing. (Grady is totes the worst.) Thank you so much!

    I love your blog! I’m rewatching all MSW and will now read your blog after watching each episode. Great job!
