In 2005, John Larroquette took to the small screen to play the role of Mike McBride – a grumpy lawyer with a big heart. McBride was the lead character in a television movie called McBride: Murder Past Midnight, which aired on the Hallmark Channel.
The film was a hit with audiences and was quickly accompanied by multiple follow-ups. In total, ten McBride movies were produced between 2005 and 2008, with Larroquette appearing in every picture.
But what are all the McBride movies and what is the order to watch them in?
If you’re itching to dive into the McBride movie series, but you don’t know where to start, then this is the post for you! Below is a list of all the McBride movies, placed in the correct order for your viewing pleasure.

The McBride movies in order
As noted above, the McBride movies series began with Murder Past Midnight, which aired in January 2005. The film was a hit and was quickly followed in February by The Chameleon Murder, then in March by It’s Murder, Madam.
With three movies under its belt, the series began to pick up a strong following and was continued with three additional movies: The Doctor is Out… Really Out in June, and Tune in For Murder and Anybody Here Murder Marty? in August. By the end of 2005, this little known movie series was already six films strong.
A seventh McBride movie made its debut in 2006, in the shape of Fallen Idol. This was followed by two more pictures in 2007: Semper Fi and Dogged.
In 2008, Hallmark aired one final McBride movie, Requiem. This brought the popular series to an end.
