What’s it about
Five stars to Murdoch Mysteries and ZERO stars to Acorn and Amazon for this bait and switch. On my Amazon video page I saw Murdoch Mysteries Season 11 available with a Acorn subscription. I instantly subscribed to binge watch however much of Season 11 I could this New Year’s. Instead I find ONE episode which aired September 25, 2017. There are at least EIGHT MORE EPISODES which aired on or before December 11, 2017. When Acorn advertises Season 11 they should provide as much of Season 11 as has been aired like HBO or AMC does. Murdoch would get to the bottom of this skullduggery.
Detective William Murdoch (Yannick Bisson, Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye) and his friends face new challenges in Edwardian Toronto as the award-winning Canadian mystery returns. With Murdoch languishing in jail for murder, Constable Crabtree (Jonny Harris, Still Standing), Inspector Brackenreid (Thomas Craig, Coronation Street) , and Detective Watts (Daniel Maslany, Goliath) race to prove his innocence, while Dr. Julia Ogden (Gemini winner H¨¦l¨¨ne Joy, Durham County) remains in hiding from the corrupt forces that have taken over Station House No. 4.
When the dust settles, Murdoch and his team solve cases featuring poisoned wine, high-speed transportation, botched organ transplants, and anti-Semitic riots, along the way encountering historical figures like Helen Keller, Alexander Graham Bell, and Theodore Roosevelt. Guest stars include Tamzin Outhwaite (New Tricks), Colin Mochrie (Whose Line Is It Anyway?), Peter Keleghan (Workin’ Moms), David Hewlett (The Shape of Water), and WWE Raw and Smackdown! star Jay ¡°Christian¡± Reso.
It has a wonderful charm to it. At first I didn’t like it, but I hung in there and by season 2 I was hooked. Now, I love it. BOO to ACORNTV for not making the entire Season 11 available at once (for those of us that want to binge-watch). What part of Netflix and Amazon Originals releasing entire seasons of their shows at once do they not understand? They did the same with “A Place to Call Home” and “Love, Lies and Records.” AcornTV needs to stop acting like a old school TV network and start acting like a 21st century VOD platform. They didn’t even bother to say what day of the week new episodes will air. So frustrating. I might just wait until all of season 11 is available to binge on.
