Once a month we watch two episodes of Murder She Wrote, drink, and play bingo. Based on the drinking game created by Bonnie Burton, we’ve turned it into bingo using the show’s tropes. We live tweet and instagram our bingo progress, so you can play along. Join us in re-watching all 264 episodes while pleasantly plastered. Download the Bingo cards and use #MurderSheDrank on Twitter and Instagram to participate. View upcoming episode watch list below.

Print out some bingo cards and get these two episodes set-up:
S3:E14 “Murder in a Minor Key”
Originally aired February 8,1987
Bookend episode*: Jessica tells the story of her new novel about a composer accused of killing the professor who’d plagiarized his music.
S3:E15 “The Bottom Line Is Murder”
Originally aired February 15,1987
A lying TV consumer advocate is killed and suspicion lands on one of the clients whose products he maligned.
* What is a “bookend episode”? That is when the main storyline does not feature Jessica Fletcher. The plots tends to be from JF’s books, with JF doing an intro and outro (hence, she bookends the story) with her doing narration over the majority of the episode. These types of episodes became more common in Season 6 in order to give Angela Lansbury a lighter workload. These “bookend” episodes are often noted as being responsible for Lansbury not leaving the show after 5 seasons (when her original contract was up).
Edit later: We ended-up watching 3 episodes this evening, because alcohol.
