MURDER 101 COLLECTION REVIEWED
“Murder 101 Collection” is a double feature of its two stellar TV movies. For the really younger readers, let’s talk about CBS in the 1990s. It was a place where the military, angels and the elderly ruled all TV. The old solved crimes, the military prosecuted the crimes and somehow Dick Wolf was left out of the mess. It’s neat that Van Dyke father and son got to star in a show together. It’s just how was this any different than “Crazy Like A Fox” or well, the 800 other shows released in the last 35 years? It’s a mess, but your elderly parents and grandparents will love this.
