Iâ€™ve been desperately trying to watch Seasons 1 and 2 of Frontier online since you mentioned they were available. Iâ€™ve been really enjoying the series so far and I expect Season 3 will be just as great. One of my favourite characters is Jessica Mattenâ€™s Sokanon. She is such an unpredictable character and I never know where she will go in any scene. I hope Sokanon makes it to the end of Frontier! â€”John
I agree that the showrunners should stick to the original format of [Murdoch Mysteries], in terms of showing the main four and covering their backstory. William, Julia, Brack and George are the only characters that I like to see have the main focus of each show. I actually wrote a letter to Peter Mitchell telling him that the show has too many characters since S9; Nina, Louise, Marilyn Clark, Ruth, Watts and even put more focus on Henry, John and Margaret. I told PM that I hoped Louise would get murdered, because that be the most interesting story with her in it. I also said that I didnâ€™t like that H, J and M were getting more screen time. The point that I was trying to make with you was that, if this season is doing something a bit “fresh,” by having episodes that give more of a backstory to the main four, then Iâ€™m OK with that. Watts is an OK character but yeah, I couldâ€™ve done without an ALL Watts episode. Basically, I donâ€™t think the writers will be doing these kinds of episodes in S13 (fingers crossed). â€”Crystal
I think itâ€™s selfish of viewers to expect the same product in every episode of any show. Creative people feel boxed in when they canâ€™t follow their instincts. I like the profile stories of Watts and Brackenreid for the depth and enrichment of the characters, for the stretching of the writersâ€™ imaginations, for the challenge to the actors. Doing the same thing with minor variations and over is BORING. For them and for me. One reason Iâ€™m such a fan of MM is their all-over-the-place unpredictability. Obviously this fluidity works for most of us since MM is on its 12th season with only a few changes to cast. Theyâ€™re happy, let them do their thing. â€”Sadie
