Overview

It's off to a film festival in Milan for middle-aged mystery novelist Jessica Fletcher (Angela Lansbury) as Murder, She Wrote launches its ninth season. Rest assured that Jessica will encounter a real-life homicide during her working vacation -- and it's an equal surety that she will solve the mystery long before the local constabulary has done so! In a later episode, a case of mistaken identity finds Jessica being kidnapped -- and by the time she has extricated herself from this dilemma, she is faced with the dilemma of solving the murder of the person who was supposed to have been snatched in her stead. Still later, Jessica butts heads with a nasty cartoonist who has caricatured her as a nosy fox in his comic strip. In other words, Jessica Fletcher is one busy gal during her ninth year on the air. Guest stars appearing during this season include Susan Blakely, Phyllis Thaxter, Joseph Bologna, Harvey Fierstein, Native American actor Graham Greene (Dances With Wolves), Mariette Hartley, Margot Kidder, Julie Adams, Carroll Baker, and Neil Patrick Harris. There is also a courtesy appearance by Jessica's friend and fellow sleuth, reformed jewel thief Dennis Stanton (Keith Michell). ~ All Movie Guide

Now, Jessica Fletcher is wonderful. However, I had decided long ago - that I would never hang out with her (LOL). But, she continues to be great fun and really brings back memories when I watch her on DVD. So glad they are all coming out on DVD. :)

I loved every episode in this season. If you are a Murder She Wrote fan you won't want to miss this season. I highly recommend it!

I particularly wanted this set because it contains "The Wind Around the Tower", one of the 2-hr. episodes taking place in Ireland. All the episodes are fun and relaxing to watch - a nice change from a trouble world. Angela Lansbury continues to shine as Jessica Fletcher, and always has very good supporting cast members. The locations are varied, and the stories all good. The video and sound quality are excellent and I thoroughly enjoy them all. Highly recommended.

What's not to love about Angela Lansbury! For those nostalgic viewers among us, Season 9 is now available and as watchable as ever. Angela Lansbury has left us the legacy of Jessica Fletcher, as entertaining as ever while displaying wit, wisdom, caring and a sharp deductive mind!

This is an excellent season of "Murder She Wrote". I enjoyed each and every episode. Now I'm ready for season 10.

As much as I hate to admit how old I am(Don't we all?), Murder, She Wrote started airing when I was four. And until the final episode aired so many years later, I would pester whoever I was with so I could get home and watch Mrs. Fletcher solve a murder(usually in a slightly comedic fashion) and secretly hoping I could figure out whodunit before her "sudden moment of clarity" in every episode. By no means do I claim to have seen every single episode, but that what this Season Collections are allowing me to do. The best part about seeing these old shows is that at least once a disc I remember me seeing the episode as a four-year-old boy, sitting in my father's recliner, watching a modern Mrs. Marple, or an ex-jewel thief, or even a new fictional sleuth solve the murder I'm watching now. Being a relatively old show, and TV special effects not being quite what they are today, this show allows younger viewers a chance to watch a true murder series without any serious mental and emotional repercussions-my six-year-old niece and nephew LOVE these DVDs, and can sit through a whole show without flinching at the bodies(more often than not they laugh at the obviously fake crime scenes)-as well as letting them see famous actors and actresses they've never ever heard of(the late Jerry Orbach for example). And in some cases-mine for example-after finishing an episode one might find oneself running to the nearest bookstore or library and heading straight for the "mystery" section.(Hey, that's how I started reading chapter books-via la "The Boxcar Children"!) And as for the rest of the older generations who also started watching this series from day one, the subtle sense of nostalgia that every episode's wit, humor, and slight darkness bring about makes me fall in love with this series all over again. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go watch Season One again.

Season 9 was every bit as entertaining as the previous seasons, with the storylines becoming more updated. There was more computer and cell phone usage, for instance. Still one of my alltime favorite series!

Murder She Wrote may have run for 12 seasons, but even long after it has been off the air, all of the episodes are extremely entertaining. Jessica Fletcher is in all of the episodes of this season, and they're extremely well done. This series inspired the paperback book series by "Jessica Fletcher and Donald Bain" and they're great reads- all of them!
