Set in the 1920's, Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries is an upbeat show that follows the adventures of Phryne Fisher, a wealthy woman of class who spends most of her days solving cases for the elite rich, to the relatively poor. The show itself is a masterpiece, intrigue costume designs, to the impeccable feminist messages in practically every episode. From adopting an orphan, to breaking and entering, Miss Fisher is no stranger to danger!
The show's cast of characters are quite unique themselves from Miss Fisher's housemaid and sidekick Dot, to Mac, who is Miss Fishers BFF, who also happens to be a doctor, and an outed lesbian. I'm telling you now the show is far away from bland. With every hour-long episode comes with the theme of feminism, LGBT situations, even interracial couples, and of course the basic murder. I use the word basic lightly, for being set in the 1920's there seems to be a countless amount of ways you could murder someone, but regardless Miss Fisher solves the case every time.
What really tops the cake is that all current three seasons are on Netflix! The perfect show to watch for the weekend, or for when you find yourself some time and want to sneak in a couple episodes. Still not convinced? Not only is Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries a crime feminist drama, there are plenty elements of comedy and romance to the show, a all around homerun. Miss Fisher's sexual tension with the lead detective, Jack Robinson, is practically seen in every episode right from the start, and it doesn't help that her housekeeper/sidekick is in a current relationship with the constables. The four of them practically have a double date every other episode while solving a case.
If romance between a lady detective and an inspector catch your attention, the witty comedy, rough backstories, and puzzling cases will. All in all, Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries is an all around amazing show, from the acting to the story line, Miss Fisher will be new favorite detective.
