There was no TV genre I hated more than the "Familiar TV faces who
come back to TV when they are really, really, horribly old in new
series where they solve murders" genre. I think it may have started
with Barnaby Jones and hopefully Diagnosis Murder is the end of the
Others in the genre?
Matlock comes to mind (*).
The worst of them was Murder, She Wrote. Why would you want that woman
coming to your town because you know somebody would immediately be
murdered, and she would make the local police look like idiots.
I had thought of MSW, but, the funny thing is, I'd never seen AL in
anything else before MSW, so, for me, her being in MSW was her element. I
didn't see her as having been a star earlier and this being a return (as
like the others in our list). I realize, of course, that this isn't the
case, but it was my perception at the time.
They resurrected Columbo and Perry Mason in the 80's and 90's. Some
shows like the Cosby Mysteries fortunately failed.
Yes. And I almost, vaguly, almost remember The Cosby Mysteries.
Oh, and another note about MSW: I always thought, man that Cabot Cove was
a dangerous place to live. Population of about 3000, but they seemed to
have a grisly murder there every week.
