I have a secret.
(Okay, so it's not so secret, but still.)
I'm addicted to Murder, She Wrote.
No, seriously. I watch at least one episode nearly every day. Often 2 or 3... or 4...
I keep a running total of how many guest stars I recognize from Star Trek or MASH.
Sad, huh? I know, it's a silly show, but I love it.
I'm in season 5 (thank you Netflix!) now and my husband asked me if had hit that point where you think "wow, they really need to end this show-- they have no new ideas". (You know, like where NCIS is lately? Love that show, but really.)
I told him no, but that I did have a list of things I've learned from watching soooo many episodes.
In no particular order, here they are for your edification:
1: NEVER move to Cabot Cove, Maine. Seriously, how many more murders can they have before it's a ghost town??
2: Do not go on vacation with Jessica Fletcher. Especially in a small group. The smaller the group, the higher your odds of being the victim... or the killer.
3: Do not get involved with any of her nieces/nephews. They've all been the prime suspect in a murder at least once and so have most of their significant others.
4: If you have the misfortune of BEING her niece or nephew, call her immediately when you inevitably become embroiled in a murder investigation. She'll get it straightened out. Without her, you're screwed because the police are convinced you did it.
