August: The 100

Using #HyggeLypse on social media; Streaming on Netflix
Heck of a tonal shift, we understand. We just figure if we are living in an apocolypse, might as well watch one that is being handled better than ours is. Plus, it has a strong female lead, murder, and poor fashion choices, just like Murder She Wrote

March-July: Rosemary & Thyme

Used #MurderSheDrank on social media; Streaming on BritBox and YouTube
What isn't there to love about cheeky drunk gardeners literally tripping over dead bodies?

FAQs

How do I play?

Easily, you don't even need to play along with us; you can do it on your own time.

  1. Download and print the Bingo Cards.
  2. Start an episode of Murder She Wrote.
  3. Mark a bingo square when the event happens in the episode.
  4. When you get 5 in a row you win MSD Bingo and earn insane bragging rights.

Do I need to use a new bingo card for each episode?

No, that would make bingo very hard. Continue using the bingo card you chose if you watch more than one episode. It normally takes two episodes to get close to winning.

Are the episodes streaming anywhere?

Yes! All seasons are available on the Peacock app. Seasons 1-5 are streaming on Netflix. Canada has all season available through Amazon Prime.

Do I need to drink to participate?

Absolutely not. In fact, half of Murder HQ are sober folks. "Murder She Drank" just sounded hilarious to us and we had to run with it. We do encourage crappy jokes and snacking though.

Is this a regular thing?

Indeed, we've been doing this since 2012. We normally meet at 8pm Central on the third Friday of the month, but double check as this sometimes changes. We are currently working our way through season 6.

How do you divide the seasons/episodes?

After some trial and error we decided to do one season per year. We plot the episodes so that we do two episodes a month and there are normally 22 episodes in a season. This normally leaves us with one month where we technically have no episodes to watch. Some years we do a special "Halloween" edition where we watch a different show (*cough*Supernatural*cough*) and other years we decide to take a break in December so we can relax and refresh for the new year. We always announce what our plans are toward the end of the year, so keep an eye out.

Why do your bingo cards start with "set 3"?

We periodically created new bingo cards as we get on in the series. Sets 1-2 were very hard because they were specific to certain episodes. The earlier cards were based on a drinking game created by Bonnie Burton. As we got on in the series we ended-up expanding the bingo squares to more open tropes of the show as well as common things that we saw happen within the Twitter community. Since we've made the change folks are actually able to win bingo, which is a mighty great feeling.

About your murder bosses

Murder She Drank is run by Kathy (she/her) and Kateri (she/her). Kathy is in CST and Kateri is in PST; they watch together via the magic of video chat. We often are joined via video by our friends in other time zones, who we refer to as "Murder HQ." Kathy tends to be the one tweeting and is also the one who runs this web page; feel free to reach out to her if any corrections needed.
