I've been watching a few of these on Channel 5 USA this afternoon. Got to love the slightly over-the-top acting by some of the guest actors and a few of the flambouyant characters. A bit like the 'rebooted' Columbo episodes of the 1980s/90s. I was intrigued to see William Link's & Richard Levinson's names in the opening credits of one episode, who also produced Columbo.
I suppose that Murder: She Wrote is more like an Agatha Christie tale for the late 20th Century. I used to have to endure watching these episodes in the late 1980s on a Sunday afternoon. Even at that young age the stories used to go over my head. However 30 years on I can treat it more as light entertainment.
Funny how Jessica Fletcher (Disney's Angela Lansbury) is always not to far away from where the murder takes place. Hhhhmm. However I think they addressed this by having a story told without Jessica actually being in the screenplay.

Well, how was your day?
Mine was good, woken by youngest, got him to wake his brother and opened some stocking presents. Made some tea and got them to wake their sister, opened the rest of the stockings. Went downstairs and had scrambled eggs and pancetta, drank Buck’s Fizz then off to tree for present opening. Put toys together, dealt with huge amounts of paper and cardboard then played. Sorta mooched about drinking and eating then cooked the big meal and ate about 5ish (?). Did a bit of tidying and had a shit then watched Elf, played a bit more then got the boys off to bed. Gonna have a wee play with the new Kindle Fire and sleep. Folk coming round tomorrow and more presents, food and drink.
It was a stress trying to get ready for the day, and January is gonna be a skint month and therefore a stress, but it went well, food was lovely too, I’m off to eat a bit more, not much room so prob chocolate cake and tea.
God, sorry- this could well be a really poor thread, hopefully others will have more riveting accounts of their day. I’m tired, full and a bit wasted.
Anyone got much in the way of plans for new year too? I have almost not thought of it at all, I did get a nice bottle of 90 proof Bourbon for Christmas though....
Next year is where it’s at, for me anyway, I’m gonna rock the shocking show!
Anyway.... Merry Christmas to you all, and may next year be good to you as I am going to make it be for me.
^ “few words”
So an expose on itv tonight took 10 "ham & pineapple" pizzas from 10 different independent takeaways and sent them off for analysis
9 out of 10 contained turkey ham instead of pork ham
would people really order a turkey & pineapple pizza? i know its near xmas n all but would you?
all 10 establishments were contacted for comment......
"our menu is halal accredited and so we use turkey ham instead of pork"
"most of our customers are muslim and everyone knows "ham" means turkey in this area"
Food standards agency states:
"religious observance does not overide the food descriptions act"
Apparently "sampling" has been stopped by Food Standards agency and a sniveller from Blackpool was interviewed and when the evidence was put to him he just shrugged & went beetroot red.
i think the proliferation of kebab & pizza takeaways has been allowed to flourish by the FSA turning a blind eye and dropping "sampling" stating "lack of funding"
