5.0 out of 5 stars She's in New York!!! January 16, 2008
I'm very excited about this release. Even though I love the small town appeal of Cabot Cove, I also enjoyed the polished look Jessica acquired when she moved to a New York apartment and there began solving mysteries. I'm looking forward to the episode where she gets a computer and has to learn how to use it, all the while writing her books and solving crimes. What I always loved about this show was they allowed a mature woman to not only be attractive and interesting, but adventurious and couragous. (A lot like the Golden Girls!) I hope after this is released they also release Father Dowling on DVD. When Tom Bosley left his role as Sheriff Tupper, I missed him. But I was so pleased when he went on to star in Father Dowling. Keep these great DVDs coming.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another year of Murder and Mystery With J B Fletcher April 13, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Here is another year of Murder and Mystery J B Fletcher, but this time she had decided to move to New York as a new place for her to be near more murder stories but still comes back to Cabot Cove every couple of episodes. What I find is so funny is that when she is back in Cabot Cove she has the typewriter/xcomputer in the kitchen on the kitchen table rather than ona comuter Desk and she lives in a big house and when she is in New York she has a computer Desk and a kitchen table and uses the table as a table where is the computer when in Cabot Cove and she is entertaining. All in All I still watching the series so I am definately looking forward to enjoying them. So keep buting them so they can realse the other four season and tv made movies that followed after the show ended in 1996

First of all, let me reiterate that Murder She wrote is my favorite TV series. As I have said in past reviews, the show defied Hollywood Standards by creating a heroine ( Jessica Fletcher) over 50. The character has incredible depth, and is incredibly well written and perfectly performed by Angela Lansbury. The character is inspirational for everyone, showing how a widow has a second chance at life after having lost her husband.
Nonetheless, Seasons 1-7 are MUCH better than 8. If you are a fan of the series and have seen 1-7, you'll notice how 8 has been revamped with a more Miami Vice feel; the music has been sexed up a bit ( they go back to how it was done in previous series come season 9, which is available on Netflix). The writing is also much weaker, save one or two strong episodes ( of course, the Cabot Cove ones!).
Then, Angela's character moves to New york for a good part of the series, and while in previous series the New York episodes were very strong, they were weak in 8. It was really a let down. But possibly the worst part was that the character ( Jessica Fletcher) had a different, much more metropolitan feel.
See, what makes this TV show is how Lansbury's character is so complex, as she is a small town woman who is highly educated but doesn't let the pomp and circumstance of the glitzy literary world change her spirit. That's what makes the show: how genuine and compassionate the lead character is.
But in 8, it's different.
Season 9 ( which again you can get on Netflix) they return to the 'old fashioned' music and traditional style of writing; nonetheless, 1-7 reign supreme.
If you are looking for an inspirational, well-written and groundbreaking show, Murder She Wrote ( with all its fantastic characters and guest stars) is for you!!

I have been a faithful fan of Murder She Wrote, and of Angela Lansbury for a couple of decades now. Every season offers a wonderful collection of interesting plots, credible acting by the cast and interesting choice of locales, be it in Cabot Cove, Maine [J.B. Fletcher's hometown] or other places. In Season 8, Ms Fletcher makes a move to New York, where she feels she will be better able to stay in touch with her publisher, as well as teach a class in criminology to college students. This is also the season where Ms Fletcher finally gives in to the superiority [or should I say the convenience] of modern technology and gets a personal computer to help her in getting her writing done.

The stories remain fresh - one of the strengths of this series. Though it seems remarkable that Ms Fletcher's character always seems to be unwittingly embroiled in murders, espionage, etc - Ms Lansbury's amazing screen presence and credible acting make it all believable. There are some recurring co-stars as well - Dr Seth Hazlitt, Sheriff Mort Metzger, and even MI6 agent Michael Haggerty. The guest stars also add a lot to enhance the storylines - such as David Soul [of Starsky and Hutch fame], the guy who played Highlander etc.

All in all, I love all the seasons of MSW, and Season 8 is as enjoyable as the previous seasons. It is fun, entertaining, and intriguing. Hope to see Season 9 out on DVD soon. All hail J.B. Fletcher!

4.0 out of 5 stars Murder is very entertaining!!!! April 23, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of "Murder She Wrote" ever since the series started and always a fan of Angela Lansbury (even when she played Elvis Presley's mother in Blue Hiawaii).

I found this series very entertaining and interesting. I still prefer the episodes that take place in Cabot Cove as I enjoy the people of the town. New York is New York but a small town it isn't.

I would recommend this DVD to anyone who enjoys good entertainment and likes a little mystery.

C. Doswell.
