Murder, She Wrote - The Complete Second Season

Season 2 of Murder, She Wrote gets off to a rousing start as widowed mystery novelist Jessica Fletcher (Angela Lansbury) confronts a genuine murder while vacationing in the Caribbean; she also makes her first acquaintance with secret agent Michael Hagarty, played by Len Cariou (with whom Lansbury previously co-starred in the Broadway musical Sweeney Todd). In the season's second episode, William Windom makes his first appearance as Dr. Seth Hazlett, cantankerous general practitioner of Jessica's home town, Cabot Cove. Among the season's guest stars is Lloyd Nolan, making his last-ever TV appearance as a suspect in "Murder in the Afternoon." Also showing up as various victims, suspects, and killers are the likes of Polly Bergen, Patrick Macnee, Ann Blyth, John Astin, Jayne Meadows, Orson Bean, Van Johnson, and Stuart Whitman. In addition, Jerry Orbach makes his earliest appearance in the role of woebegone private eye Harry McGraw, a role he'd later parlay into his own starring series. Arguably the season's most delightful episode is the London-based "Sing a Song of Murder," in which Angela Lansbury essays the dual role of Jessica Fletcher and Jessica's British musical-comedy star cousin Emma. Movie buffs will get a kick out of Lansbury's spirited rendition of "Little Yellow Bird," the song she so memorably performed in the 1945 theatrical feature The Picture of Dorian Gray.

I am an avid fan of this series. I was very disappointed with Season 2 as I also had trouble with several of the episodes on 2 of the DVDs. I am only giving 2 stars since the DVDs are so bad.

I Love this show but My DVD's (five sets of season two and one of one) Did not work. This is a beloved show and Universal let me down. Please Redo the sets and Make sure they work!

Classic Jessica Fletcher...if you like the series, you'll enjoy this particular season. No problem with DVD performance, either.
Guest More than 1 year ago
In accord with reviewer Mystery Lover...great show. Received as gift. Greatly disappointed in break-ups and freezes in so many episodes. Everyone who bought/received this item should be given the opportunity to return it but only after the studio guarantees they have redone with high quality.
