I've just started watching / re-watching Murder She Wrote on Sony Ch 48 for a good old fashioned who-dunnit. I haven't seen it for years and in most ways it's very dated and cheesy. LOL
In most ways, I agree although there are no "tech" special effects which these days are deemed as essential.
The good old written Agatha Christie and Sherlock Holmes plots are still the basis for most good "who dunnits" Etc.
Yeah I agree, I was saying this to my other half the other day. We were watching Howard the Duck as I said that I haven't watched it since I was little and I was impressed with the special effects for it's time. In fact I much prefer them to the current CGI of today as sometimes it can look a bit to fake 🙂
I'd take a good plot over special effects any day 🙂
