First off, I admit to being biased in my opinion. I was fortunate enough to be a background extra in the pilot movie and a couple of episodes. That much said, it was a lot of fun to watch this little gem with my family when it premiered on Lifetime. A lot must be said about the creative process that goes into a show like this. The budget for each episode was very tight. With not much money, but a lot of imagination, a lot of improvisation and on-the-spot decision making was done in filming this series. The show is filmed in and around Dallas TX,("Prison Break" was being filmed in another part of town at the same time as this show, with a MUCH larger budget; at least that 's what some of the other extras told me) and much of the scenery and location filming was only possible through generosity and goodwill in the community. As an example, a little fun trivia: closely watch the funeral scenes in the first few episodes; they were all filmed in the same little church in Oak Cliff. So apparently, all the murder victims in Dallas are all members of a particular Christian Science congregation! There are a lot of other fun little quirks in this goofy murder-mystery/social message series. It bears more than just a little resemblance to "Murder, She Wrote", but aims at a slightly younger audience. For her part, Ms. McKellar is even nicer in person than her character on the show. Smarter, too--read her bio--she's a total genius in Math. So yes, I am a little biased in favor of this intelligent, funny show, but why shouldn't I be? Check it out for yourself and enjoy; I hope Santa brings me the DVD.
