Audience Reviews for Murder, She Wrote: Season 1

    Love this show, always hard to find the killer, Jess is the best, could watch her in Cabot cove all day .

    One of the best shows ever. Nothing like watching Jessica put the pieces together.
  • May 02, 2020
    My review is for all the seasons of Murder She Wrote. This is one of the best light mystery shows ever made. Angela Lansbury is perfect in her role as Jessica Fletcher, the widowed schoolteacher turned mystery writer who travels the globe and finds dead bodies everywhere she goes. She also found that she had a knack for solving the murders because of her expertise developed during learning her mystery writing craft. Everything is pitch perfect, IMO, starting with the delightful theme song that makes my heart happy and mimics the cadence of typing. The town in which she lives, Cabot Cove, looks like a dream Maine town, the homey characters with ideosyncratic flaws, the charming shops. Making guest appearances throughout the series are former big stars, no longer in their heyday, appearing as comic characters, victims, or murderers. The whole thing just works, which is why it ran so long. Highly recommend. Suggest starting with Season 1 and working your way through them all.
