Welcome to the Cozy Mystery List TV and Movie Section!

I know that as readers, some of you may frown at the idea of television shows— But, I am including this category for those of you who might like watching a few hours of television each week… even though it takes you away from reading your cozy mystery books!

I have found that with each passing year, my husband and I have less and less “in common” with the characters and shows that are being broadcast on television—and that’s including all of the cable channels!

It is for this reason, we have joined online movie rental companies, and we also buy DVDs online.  That is how we can watch the types of shows that we enjoy.

Now that we are “empty nesters” we are able to watch the movies and shows that appeal to just the two of us. These include a lot of BBC series, some of which have been shown in the United States on PBS and A&E…unfortunately, years ago! Most of you are probably familiar with a lot of these shows, but some of you may just need a reminder of what I consider shows of yesteryear, which are good enough to re-watch today.  Of course, some of the shows are new shows being aired right now… some on PBS and others you’ll have to go to Great Britain to watch.

I have decided to do this section a little differently from the rest of this site. I am going to write about the shows in my blog area instead of doing different pages. I will provide a link from the title of the show/movie on this page to the page where I write about that particular movie/show. I think that this might be the easiest way to do this…. (Also, the top entries are the most recent.)
