BWW Review: MURDER BY MISADVENTURE - Wow, What a Whodunit!BWW Review: MURDER BY MISADVENTURE - Wow, What a Whodunit!
by Kristen Morale - Sep 2, 2015

Written by Edward Taylor (whom I would love to have the privilege of chatting with, the inner workings of his brain must be so profound) and directed by James Brennan (this show rocked, if you haven't already caught that), Murder by Misadventure is the title that mystery-series writing duo Kent and Riggs has bestowed upon its next potential project, but one which proves itself to not be limited to the confines of a television screen. Harold Kent is at odds with his careless and belligerent partner Riggs, who is also a fan of excessive alcohol consumption; simply put, he is a drunk, but a drunk with all the successful ideas the team has to offer the public. So, when Kent becomes determined to rid himself of his alcoholic partner whom he considers a burden (especially when an unexpected secret is at last disclosed), he decides that an "accidental" murder is the best course of action, using his partner's brilliant idea of a plotline against its creator. What ensues afterwards involves Kent, his wife and the couple's adamant yet somewhat laissez-faire follow-up of a murder they think will be a cinch, but what actually goes dreadfully wrong.
