This is the only series I watched. Will not even look for a substitute. It had everything I wanted – mystery, suspense, romance, comedy. And the gore was over quickly in the beginning.

The best show on tv . I’ve bought all 5 seasons . Season 6 has been excellent. No other show matches it for its characters,plots and interaction between the entire cast. It’s definitely a show that works. Looking forward to Season 7 etc.

Shellie has definitely got it right! Extremely well written, humor and drama alike. Primary and secondary characters all contribute to a sterling final product. Above all, the clever humor has kept it a cut above the other mystery shows. The casting is so well done. Thank you, ABC, so much for keeping our favorite show on the air!
