Hot damn. Murph is back.
28 September 2018 | by MEManganSee all my reviews

I didn't realize until this new first episode how influential Murphy Brown was in my life. The straight-shooting verbal evisceration of stupid ideas that I watched back in the day became a way of life for me. The flawed-but-impactful Murphy of my youth is now poised to be as in-your-face as we needed the first time around, and we need even more today.

The fast-paced verbal jousting is just what I needed right now. I'm here for you, Murph. You go, old girl.

Much affection--another old girl.
