Goofs

The show's central location, "The Mystery Woman Bookstore", only sells mysteries and thrillers according to its owner. When the camera pans the shelves, the readable titles include, "The Handbook of Practical Psychology", "The Great White Lie", "The Hite Report" and the "The Firestone Story" - all of which are non-fiction. Though you might consider some of those topics thrilling or mysterious, it appears the shelves have been dressed with random used books. See more »

Spunky Samantha Kinsey runs a mystery bookstore. It is typical of many current independent bookstores today in that no one apparently patronizes it despite its plentiful selection and a great atmospheric vibe. In her free time Samantha is a freelance photographer because after bookstore proprietor, most women fantasize of being freelance photographers, and this series is quite dutiful in attempting to appeal to its target audience. Besides, if Samantha didn't get out of her bookshop it would be hard to construct a series of murder mysteries for her to solve without them seeming extremely contrived, as opposed to semi-contrived like this one. There's a murder at a health spa where Samantha has been taking photos and she is determined to get to the bottom of it. She keeps returning to the spa to grill the suspects, and I'm not sure why none of them tell her to beat it since she's a photographer and not a cop. Luckily Samantha has her friend Cassie the D.A. who is spunky too, so Cassie can help her grill the suspects when Samantha is off following other leads. Samantha also has help from one of The Mod Squad, Linc, who has connections in the various federal criminal bureaus. He contacts them via the internet which constantly amazes Samantha. Linc, or Philby as he is known to his mystery women, apparently never leaves the bookstore for fear that the one time he is away a customer might actually show up to purchase a book. This episode featured Felicia Day as Emily who has visions referred to in the title. I really liked Felicia Day and her character, although it was too bad her vision wasn't a little clearer so that she could have helped Samantha identify the murderer a lot sooner.
