I never watched Murder She Hoped but I did watch a Magnum PI episode where there was a sort-of crossover episode with Angela's friend dissing Magnum, kept calling him "the muscle". Pretty funny.

I've always enjoyed PUR's retrospectives on Murder She Wrote. Here's the episode you were talking about.

Fun fact: In Manchurian Candidate, Ms Lansbury was only three years older than her "son", Laurence Harvey.  She was born in 1925 and he in 1928.

You'd have thought after so many murders, people would have realized inviting Jessica Fletcher anywhere was bad luck.

The murder rate in Cabot Cove had to the highest in the nation.

She really should have gotten the Oscar for that one.

She was harsh and straight up vicious in that! I love strong women, but she scared me in that. Which then kinda turned me on.

I'd vote her as one of the Greatest Screen Villains from that performance. She was one ball-busting, mean lady. She could have been the prototype Mallory Archer.

It is quite a competition between Cabot Cove and Midsomer.

I was watching my friends' young teens one night - really just hanging out with them while their mom and dad were out on a Date Night.  The kids were tired of Pixar movies and asked for a grown-up movie, so I scrolled through On Demand and found the original Manchurian Candidate on TCM.  The kids were mesmerized by it, and pretty savvy to the plot; even one step ahead of Sinatra's character.  When Eleanor Iselin kissed Raymond, the kids commented that it wasn't a mother-type kiss.  I replied, "It was even worse in the book."  They thought for a moment, and then "EWWWWWW!!"
