While I’m usually against remakes (Anne of Green Gables comes to mind) enough time has passed and the memory of the show has faded so much so I welcome a new The Odyssey. I really liked this show when I was younger and the premise works well for a remake. —Alicia
A small-town “girl” is no way to describe a 27-year-old woman. To find a man of her dreams? Women dream of more than a man. As far as a search for a soul mate and a groom, Ms. Lorimer should look at the odds … the success rate of lasting matches from this franchise, including the Canadian version is dismal—he’d do better at speed dating night at the local Kelsey’s.
That in the 21st century we have this kind of brainless TV is embarrassing. To call it “Reality” or “Factual” TV is an insult to all that is real and a fact. For a Canadian network to buy this format to satisfy their Canadian content is the worst violation of all. —Gary
The last episode of Season 9 was shocking and scary. However, I was glad that Dr. Ogden’s character survived. I did not like the Eva Pierce’s character. She was a psycho and mentally ill. But after all this is just television, not real. I look forward to seeing Season 10. It will probably show in the U.S. next year. I love all the actors that portray the characters. —Jean
I just watched the finale and I liked it enough—it certainly had its fair share of excitement, and it was nice to see Julia saving the day, especially after things seemed to cool down once she found herself back in the morgue. Obviously, we need a reminder now and then that Julia is epic, and the bow and arrow certainly did that! Eva is not my favourite villain—I never really liked her plotline or character, so I am glad that in this episode she is gone for good >:) I think it was very fitting for Julia to end Eva’s life, given their history.
I thought this season was fantastic and I am so excited for Season 10. I was sad to see Emily Grace go, as I loved her sense of humour and wonder, however I am really liking Rebecca James a lot! The actress who plays her is fantastic and it’s so nice to have a fresh character who brings a different dynamic and experience to the show. Emily Grace was great on her own, so I am glad Rebecca James doesn’t feel like just a “replacement” as some shows tend to do, and more of her own unique character that has so much to bring to Murdoch Mysteries!
Also, I can’t say I agree with the people who disliked this episode mainly because of it not being “realistic.” If Murdoch was 100 percent realistic we wouldn’t have fun historical cameos, Murdoch’s inventions or any of the other great historical events that Murdoch gets wound up in. It is fictional after all! I’ve accepted long ago that ridiculous things happen in Murdoch Mysteries, and I am quite happy that they do as it adds to the charm of this show. —Misty
