    Synopsis


    The pride of Cabot Cove, ME, sprightly mystery novelist Jessica Fletcher (Angela Lansbury) indulges her hobby of solving real-life murders throughout the first season of Murder, She Wrote. No sooner had the series joined CBS' Sunday-night lineup than Jessica was busily trying to determine who killed a Sherlock Holmes lookalike at a costume ball. In the second episode, Tom Bosley is introduced as Jessica's best friend, Cabot Cove sheriff Amos Tupper, who as usual gripes and grumbles that Jessica is sticking her nose where she shouldn't -- and putting herself in harm's way in the process -- as she tries to find out who knocked off a wealthy and much-hated patriarch. Likewise bemused by Jessica's private investigations is Tupper's superior officer Captain Ethan Cragg, a character played during season one by Claude Akins. Michael Horton also pops up for the first time in the role of Jessica's trouble-prone nephew Grady. Among the "special guest suspects" (and "special guest victims") seen during Murder, She Wrote's maiden season are Samantha Eggar, Roger Miller, Peter Graves, William Conrad, José Ferrer, Edie Adams, Bobby Sherman, Robert Goulet, Linda Blair, Eddie Bracken, Joey Bishop, and Stella Stevens. Also worth noting is the guest appearance in the episode "Death Takes a Curtain Call" of Hurd Hatfield, with whom Angela Lansbury co-starred in the 1945 film The Picture of Dorian Gray -- not to mention the appearance of William Windom in a later episode, playing a character other than his familiar series guise as Cabot Cove's crotchety general practitioner Dr. Seth Hazlitt (just as Ron Masak, later seen on the series as Sheriff Mort Metzger, shows up as a certain "Lt. Meyer") .

      One of the best mystery series of all time. The first season we see how JB Fletcher becomes the famous mystery writer. The episodes will leave you guessing who done it or how they will be caught right up to the very end. A wonderful mystery series to add to any DVD library that you'll want to watch again and again.

      An older series that is still a fine cluster of who-dunits! If you like short mystery stories and guessing who the guest stars were, this is a fun collection. It's amazing how many beginning stars and older celebrities appeared in the series as the good guys or the murderers. A great price for a full season of viewing.

      Angela Lansbury was born to be Jessica Fletcher, you get all 21 shows plus the pilot movie on 6 discs. Don't know if the episodes are edited since I did not see all of them when they were first shown, but the box states music may differ fromtelevised version.

      This a good show that has a character like a American Miss Marple. An interesting mystery that does not get as violent as some of the shows of today. More thinking rather than flash and bang.

      I love Murder, She Wrote. One of the best mystery shows on TV. My wife and I always try to guess the murderer, but always have a hard time figuring it out. Definitely recommend it!

      This is a good series premiere which went on to be a good mystery series for years. Writing and acting are very good with hundreds of actors from the past.
