the Honourable Lady-Sleuth from Melbourne
12 May 2016
I am a fan of most Australian TV shows (I grew up with the Flying Doctors in Germany), so after a LOT of hesitation I gave Miss Fisher a go.
Well, what can I say? This is by far the most enjoyable sleuthing show I have seen in a long time!!! There is the obvious reason of having 8 actors who all work amazingly well together (From Phryne to Jane very well cast!!!), and Essie Davis and Nathan Page effortlessly kill you softly with their chemistry! And the fact that a woman uses her brain (and other things) to get information (and other, uhm, things), in the meantime driving wheelies around the men who try to solve the murder along with her, is just the icing on the cake.
Most of the time I also found the murder story of the week very well written (sometimes my science background reared its ugly head, but I bashed it back down) and in every season you will find and over spanning back story.
In about two months I managed to get through the three seasons three times already, it is so immensely enjoyable!
Let's hope they will get a movie out as they plan, but as things are, the third season finale can stand as a farewell to Phryne and Jack, and I am very happy that I made the plunge into their world :)))
