Afternoon Crime by humon Afternoon Crime by humon
I love these "cosy" murder mystery series, with Hercule Poirot as my absolute favorite.

I don't think Sherlock Holmes belong here because no matter the version it doesn't fit into the cosy feeling I get when I watch the others.

I agree. Holmes is too, shall we say, prickly, to be considered "cosy". Well done.

The three in the middle are my favs ^^ Hercule Poirot is the only one, that I watch on the actual tv... Miss Marple and Midsomer Murders is watched on youtube ;) Danish tv hasn´t counted with the fact, that some youngsters are into these "cozy" crime series :)

That's the first thing I thought, wot, no Sherlock!!!!?  But...you're right.  Not quite the same.  Of course I'm more of a Jonathan Creek than Columbo fan, but it's just amazing that there's people out there who have the same appreciation of these magnificent characters.

I imagine her having a great deal of money as a best selling author...  Not that Matlock was a slouch by any means but still...

Just found it, it's so cute!

(I suppose, soviet version of Sherlock is as cosy as it can be. It puts you in very warm and calm atmosphere.)

Oh god, I watched Jessica Fletcher daily when I was a kid. It ran every day around 10pm on weekdays and I looooooved the series.
When I later learned of Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot, I was already a pro about cromes for my age xD

You like Poirot, too. OMG! I love him. I just recently finished reading "Poirot Looses a Client". Awesome read. My favorite is "Murder on the Orient Express". I even have the PC game. I have yet to finish the game though.

I love these shows. Poirot never came on much here (well, not while I was able to watch tv that is, probably before my time) and I didn't know Tom until seeing this drawing. Columbo is my favourite, he's kind of like a semi-mischievous but helpful and wise dad figure.

Your right you know?
I have never connected all these murder mystery shows before and i would have to agree totally with you, also Hercule Poirot is the best, I always enjoyed seeing the characters work so well together, so far my favorite police officer in any show is Japp.

and one more thing, have yet to see a rerun of Murder she wrote, how many episodes does that show have?!
