“Women’s Murder Club”: not dead yet

A few days ago, things looked
pretty bleak for Women’s Murder

In fact, on Thursday the crew
started striking the set, according to Ask Ausiello. But yesterday, ABC announced that the drama has a new showrunner,
Robert Nathan
, and Murder Club could be back on the air by
April. Come on back, ladies.

The plan is to shoot three
new episodes this season — and ratings for those episodes will determine
whether we’ll have a second season of Women’s Murder Club. In
other words, if you like it, watch it. If you haven’t watched it, here
are four good reasons to start.

Angie Harmon

Paula Newsome

Aubrey Dollar

Laura Harris

The show had kind of a shaky
start, but it got better with each episode as it quit trying to be "Sex
and the Naked City" and found its own way. I’d like it more if
the women didn’t talk about man trouble while standing over a dead body,
but the stories are strong enough that I can tolerate the het girl talk.

And, of course, I can’t resist
a woman with a gun.

Hey, maybe that’s why Angie
Harmon is a Republican — because she knows she looks hot with a gun.
Makes as much sense as anything else.

Are you a Women’s Murder Club
fan? Will you watch the rest of the season?
