You’ve all been there: Late at night, looking for a new TV series to curl up with on Netflix Instant because you’ve already seen everything in your queue twice, but Netflix keeps recommending series that it only has two seasons of on Instant. And Lord knows you are NOT gonna sit around waiting for a disc.
What ho- you discover a show that has all TWELVE seasons online, spanning hundreds of episodes; a show with enough episodes that you don’t feel bad about depriving your future self of things to watch when you go on a day-long episode binge; a show that is well-written enough to keep your interest, but does not require you to pay attention to every detail to follow the plot; a show that has…Angela Lansbury!
Am I hoping to establish some sort of “Julie and Julia” relationship with a fictional character? Perhaps. Will I become a shut-in who hums the theme song nonstop? Perhaps. Is all of this an attempt to become an old lady at the age of 24? Perhaps.
Either way, pull up a chair and enjoy Jessica Fletcher’s adventures in Cabot Cove…because it’s going to be a long summer fling with “Murder, She Wrote”.
