Murder She Wrote: The Complete Ninth Season (Universal DVD)


Picture: C+ ††††Sound: C+ ††††Extras: D ††††Episodes: C+



We continue our coverage into Season Nine of the beloved Murder She Wrote series, we have already covered season two reviewed here, as well as seasons three through eight, cover here.Of course the show would continue on for a total of 12 seasons once it was all said and done, but the show remained a strong one through the 1980s and became a real staple of the television crime drama, even though Season Nine would continue much of the same formula, it was obvious that the show was not ready to run out of steam just yet.Angela Lansbury is far too tough for that!


This set includes all 22 episodes across five discs, they are as follows:


Disc One:

Murder in Milan

Family Secrets

The Mole

The Wind Around the Tower


Disc Two:

The Dead file

Night of the Coyote

Sugar & Spice, Malice & Vice

The Classic Murder

A Christmas Secret


Disc Three:

The Sound of Murder

Final Curtain

Double Jeopardy

Dead Eye


Disc Four:

Killer Radio

The Petrified Florist

Treshhold of Fear

The Big Kill

Dead to Rights


Disc Five:

Lone Witness

Ship of Thieves

The Survivor

Loveís Deadly Desire



The show did try new things here and there, but was always strongest when it kept to doing what it knew best and kept with the shows original intentions.Even the best shows run out of ideas at some point and this may have been the season to end the series as it was finally getting to the point where fresh ideas were few and far between and the strength of the entire show was relying heavily on Lansbury and die hard fans.Either way, it is here to stay on DVD.


Like the other sets for the show it features a slightly soft 1.33 X 1 full frame image that shows some date, but still looks good since it was shot on film.The Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono is also fine for itís age and is consistent with the previous sets as well.


We look forward to the remaining seasons and this is a show that deserves Blu-ray treatment at some point in time, hopefully sooner than later.
