    Of course the network cancelled this excellent show. I enjoyed the cast and the plots. Much nicer than any of the other zillion crime series out there.

    Thanks a lot for axing yet another show I liked.

    Please allow this show to return..Great casting, great writing, fantastic story line…Take half of these reality shows off and leave something as good as this on.Kept me on the edge every week. Loved it!

    Love this series. The cast is great. I wish there would be one case per episode,however, because even if I DVR it, I lose the continuity if I can’t watch regularly. My husband and I really enjoy crime dramas, and this one is well done. Glad that it will be back :-)

    I enjoyed Murder in the First. I liked the concept of following one case to completion.It made it more realistic.I think you might need to advertise more.I’m glad it’s returning.
