Murder, She Wrote

Saturday, December 15th, 2007

Happened to glance at this on AFN as I was walking by yesterday.  Come on, why isn’t this show called “Murder, She Committed”?

Jessica Fletcher is a mystery writer who goes around solving murders.  IMDB (Internet Movie DataBase) tells me that there were 264 episodes of this show.  I have always been struck by the coincidence:  somebody gets killed every episode, or at least most of them.  Let’s assume some 200+ murders over some 12 years with a single linking factor, that of a mystery writer.   Jessica Fletcher is an evil criminal supergenius of the highest order!  Not only does she kill all these people, but she frames someone else for it each and every time!

Hiding under that friendly, harmless old lady mask is a monster of the horriblest sort, ladies and gentlemen.  Make no mistake!
