    16 Reasons Everyone Should Be Watching "Murdoch Mysteries"

    Because if you're not watching, you're seriously missing out.

    It has recently come to our attention that our friends down south (and even some fellow Canadians) may be missing out on the wonderfulness that is Murdoch Mysteries.


    Which is a TRAVESTY. Here's why you — and everyone else — should be paying attention:

    1. If solely for Yannick Bisson.

    2. And the on-again-off-again love story between Detective Murdoch and Dr. Julia Ogden.

    3. The fact that there even is a Dr. JULIA Ogden on this show.

    4. And then, as if that isn't enough, they add a new medical examiner: Dr. Emily Grace.

    5. In fact, the show really does push the boundaries of its time in an amazing way.

    6. Murdoch is SO ahead of his time.

    7. And the show constantly pokes fun at its modern viewers.

    8. Inspector Brackenreid's gruff, let's-get-down-to-business character is the perfect foil for the composed and often stiff-mannered Det. Murdoch.

    9. The costumes are always on point.

    10. Crabtree's theories are very ...imaginative.

    11. And the sub-storyline of him as a mystery novelist is always worth rooting for.

    12. The cast chemistry is sizzling.

    13. Some pretty cool actors drop by for special cameos!

    14. The show stays fresh by always bringing in new characters.

    15. And that leads us to...THE ACTUAL MYSTERIES.

    16. Like, if you thought a turn-of-the-century detective show would be boring, think again.

    Murdoch Mysteries airs on CBC in Canada and Ovation Network in the USA. You can also catch up on all the seasons on iTunes.
