2013 Shows: Whodunnit?

What? Don’t you like insane death sequences?

Whodunnit? was a summer series in every meaning of the term. Light. Formulaic. Best watched with a friend, but not if anything more interesting were happening anywhere in the world.

And then, 41 minutes into the first episode, after a round of needlessly drawn out (but still effective) tension building – including the key information that Don and Dontae were at risk of elimination – this happened:

And instead of just putting all their ducks in the pilot and finale barrells, Whodunnit? sprinkled some delightfully insane kills throughout their nine episode run. Case in point: episode three ends with a mountain lion.

A mountain. Lion.

There’s no question this series has plenty of room for improvement. But kudos to ABC for putting some dollars into a clever little concept and giving us good reasons to watch all the way through to contestant elimination.

  • The cast was delightful on Twitter. I had a few lovely exchanges with Ulysses, my favorite involving what kind of zoning is required for a mansion with a morgue.

      I totally agree, talking about Whodunnit on Twitter was almost as much fun as watching the show. A cheesy show yields very cheesy punny tweets!
