"I am excited that the series is being released more regular than in the past. Also, the addition of only have a one sided disc has made a huge difference in the discs being played on my DVD player. In the past, I know that many people complained of players not being able to play the double sided disc. That being said I think that the show just continues to get better. I thought that this season in particular rocks. Angela Lansbury continues to be awesome as JB Fletcher. You must be a fan or you would not want info on season 5."
J.B. Fletcher amazes, yet again!

"I have loved Murder She Wrote since watching the first season as a thirteen year-old back in 1984. I have faithfully followed all the seasons, and Season Five [1988-89] is as entertaining as ever. I have to say that though I love all the locations for the stories, my favorite is Cabot Cove, Maine and I just adore the quirky townspeople and the scandals around them!
In Season Five, we have some noted guest stars such as Maxwell Caulfield, John Rhys-Davies, Emma Samms, Bo Svenson, Erin Gray, etc. With such talents abounding in each episode, its no wonder that watching this series is such a pleasure! The stories are creative and well-written, with a cohesive plotline and of course, stellar acting.
Of course, the regulars are a hoot to watch as well! Angela Lansbury is flawless in her role as super sleuth J.B. Fletcher, and there are of course William Windom as Dr Seth Hazlitt, Richard Paul as mayor Sam Booth, Jerry Orbach as PI Harry McGraw etc. Tom Bosley's role as Sheriff Amos Tupper is replaced by Ron Masak, playing Sheriff Mort Metzger. It doesn't take one too long to warm up to Sheriff Metzger as played by Ron Masak. He is the perfect foil to J.B. Fletcher, and I just love watching the comical expressions on his face as Jessica stumps him again and again on cases they work on together!
Angela Lansbury s such a talented actress and continues to amaze till today [at 82!]. What I love most about her portrayal of J.B. Fletcher is that she plays a strong, intelligent, and attractive middle-aged lady [such roles are so scarce in Hollywood], and managed to entertain audiences for 12 years in her most-famous screen role! I hope the later seasons [9-12] will be made available on DVD soon!"
Good Old Murder She Wrote!

"When I'm feeling stressed from a tough day at work, I watch these great old "Murder She Wrote" episodes. They are entertaining and seem warm and fuzzy in spite of the subject matter. Angela Lansbury is like a reassuring old friend. This season is recorded on much better quality dvds than the previous seasons, which gave me a lot of trouble. You can see and feel the superior quality of this set. I managed to play the whole season without a single problem, which makes me very happy."
More of the same, but if you're a fan, that's a good thing

"If you've made it to Season five of "Murder She Wrote", then you probably already have a pretty good idea of what this series is about and of whether you'll like it or not. Season five of "Murder She Wrote" is just more of the same. The only major change between this seasons and the ones before it is that Sheriff Amos Tupper (Tom Bosley) has "left" Cabot Cove and has been replaced by Sheriff Mort Metzger (Ron Masak) (Bosley actually left to star in his own mystery series, "The Father Dowling Mysteries", which is also likely to appeal to "Murder She Wrote" fans, although is not currently available on DVD). Although Amos is sorely missed, Sheriff Metzger does grow on you and by the end of the season, I found that I quite liked him. His outburst in the second last episode is absolutely hilarious. As usual, there are tons of guest stars. The highlights of this series include Roddy McDowall, Megan Mullally, Erin Gray, Paul Sorvino, Brad Dourif, Dee Wallace-Stone, Efrem Zimbalist Jr, and of course, William Windom as Dr Seth Hazlitt."
