This Week’s Premieres

As most shows swing into their second or third weeks, the list of premieres is getting shorter. This week, there are only two, both on Friday on ABC. Women’s Murder Club stars Angie Harmon (Law and Order: The Mothership) as homicide detective Lindsey Boxer, the heroine of a series of James Patterson novels (1st to Die, 2nd Chance, 3rd Degree, etc). Lindsey solves mysteries with the help of an extracurricular group of friends, all of whom with tenuous connections to various aspects of the murder game: a coroner (Paula Newsome), a lawyer (Laura Harris, Dead Like Me), and a crime reporter (Aubrey Dollar, Point Pleasant). Linda Park (Enterprise) and Rob Estes (Silk Stalkings) co-star.

I’ve listened to or read the first five books (and have the sixth in my queue), and have enjoyed them. They’ve got a certain brutality to them which I doubt will be brought to the screen, and I’m not sure how closely they’re following the books; Park’s character appears to be a new one, and I recall Estes’ character (Boxer’s ex-husband), but it appears that they’re inserting him into the main plot, which I don’t remember. I like Harmon and Harris, though, and will certainly give this one a look-see.

Men in Trees enters its second season at 9 p.m. I’ve never watched a single episode, though a number of folks seem to really like it.
