Mysteries on TV: Murder She Wrote, Miss Marple, and CSI New York

Mysteries on TVMystery television series being released this week on DVD:

The marvelous Angela Lansbury returns as mystery author Jessica Fletcher in . In contrast to the previous season, Jessica makes an appearance in virtually all episodes this season, albeit for some just as the narrator of the exploits of others, notably jewel thief turned insurance investigator Dennis Stanton. Jerry Orbach is also featured in one episode as private investigator Harry McGraw, his last appearance in the series before his untimely death.

Murder, She Wrote aired on CBS from September 1984 through May 1996. This DVD set, from the 1990 / 1991 season, contains all 22 episodes on 5 disks.

Four mystery movies are featured on starring our personal favorite actress to play the part, Geraldine McEwan. Not everyone likes these new, updated adaptations of the Christie classics, but McEwan's outstanding portrayal of the senior sleuth and the production values more than compensate for the sometimes inane dialog.

The four movies included on this DVD set of 4 disks, which originally aired on ITV1 in the UK last winter and on PBS in the US this past summer, are: Towards Zero, At Bertram's Hotel, Nemesis, and Ordeal by Innocence.

The crimes are more brutal. The evidence is more baffling. And every killer wants to get away with murder on featuring Gary Sinise as NYPD Detective Mac Taylor.

CSI: NY is the third in this franchise after the original based in and the subsequent , both of which are still in production.

CSI: NY first aired on CBS in September 2004. This DVD set includes all 24 episodes from the 2006 / 2007 season on 6 disks.
