    It should be “Women’s Murder Club”, not “Woman’s Murder Club”.

    Geez, even I knew that and I do not even watch the show.

    And besides, it would not be much of a club if there was only one woman, now would it ?

    Ok, I’ll stop now.

    The only thing I can think of (knowing nothing about the show) is that it should be “women’s” not “woman’s.” “Woman’s” is singular possessive, implying it is a club composed of only one woman.

    Alternatively, however, you could say that it is a club (composed of many people) that is owned by one woman. It would be like saying “Fagstein’s Murder Club.” Well, not really though, since “Fagstein” is a proper noun and “woman” is not. So it should be “A woman’s” murder club, or “Women’s” murder club.

    Or maybe what’s wrong with it is the idea of having a murder club at all, as that sounds rather retarded.
