Despite the petition, Netflix pulled Murder She Wrote from streaming. This is highly disappointing to us as we saw Murder She Drank as a free* way to get together with likeminded nerds for an evening. We tried brainstorming other ways of doing MSD without buying anything, but copyright laws are strict and although Saint Jessica has been in jail, we don’t want to get locked-up. So, we looked to the DVDs.
We will continue to live watch Murder She Wrote as we have done in the past, but while watching the episodes on DVD. With the rate we watch the episodes, we barely make it through a season a year. With each season of DVDs being between $13-$20, we think that isn’t too bad over a year. So, please continue to join us via DVD and Twitter as we drink, bingo, and make fun of poor outfit choices. Next #murdershedrank is Jan 20th, because we will need a safe space that day.
*Yes, you have to pay for internet service and a Netflix account, but you know what we mean.
We ended-up watching three episodes last Sunday, instead of our normal two, because alcohol + long weekend = bad decisions. We watched episode 12, “Capitol Offense,” which was just ludicrous. We have yet to win bingo, so it is starting to get real. To be fair, the Chicago group hasn’t started using the newest bingo cards, which have more general and easier to get items on it. Perhaps when we pull those out for the next Murder She Drank on June 28th, that will help at least one of us in accomplishing a win.
We ended-up watching three episodes on Friday, instead of our normal two, because alcohol. None of us won bingo though, so that is a bummer. The extra episode we watched was “Lovers and Other Killers” (#7) and it was a really weird one. Who was the old lady dressed like a birthday cake at the beginning and who killed her?
Episodes 5-7 were some of the oddest ones we’ve seen so far and they were just terrible for bingo. It made us realize that we should create some bingo cards with less specific/more general tropes. So, we have a new series of bingo cards that you can download. Just in time for the next Murder She Drank on Sunday the 15th. More info on that coming soon.
We have a twitter now so all our drunken bingo is in one place. We will also use the #MurderSheDrank hashtag. Use the hashtag and show off what you are drinking and the status of your bingo card. See you online tonight for episodes 5 and 6!
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.
