Has it really been twenty years since "Murder She Wrote" began? Wow! The show, which ended in 1996, was one of my favorites growing up - and I was only born in 1982. The first season is now out on DVD, and while it doesn't include any special features, it does include all 22 episodes of that season.
I have little to say about this release other than that fans (or at least the vast majority who can't remember 20-year old episodes) shouldn't miss this release. The episodes don't feel too aged, although the show is definitely more lighthearted than a lot of "murder mystery" shows on today, which does make it a bit goofier than it used to be. At the same time, it's nice to watch a show that presents good mysteries and fun characters while being suitable for relatively young children. I really can't think of a current show that compares to "Murder She Wrote" - there is nothing like it on TV. While adults can reflect back on past memories, this one might also make a good choice for children who are starting to become interested in serious shows but who aren't old enough to watch the gritty murder mysteries like "C.S.I."
It's a shame no supplements are included in the DVD set, but "Murder She Wrote: The Complete First Season" should bring back some fond old memories.
