I’m a bit of a crime show enthuasist, I’ll try anything and I love most of them—Castle, Rizzoli & Isles, The Closer, Poirot, Marple. One of my absolute favourites is an Australian show called Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. These are also a series of books by Kerry Greenwood, but today I just wanted to focus on the show. So here are five reasons why you should watch Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries.
Two words for you—1920’s Melbourne. I’m sorry, that doesn’t make you flail? What? Maybe it’s just my love for all things 20’s, or the fact I’m a Melbourne girl but isn’t it awesome to have something not set in England or America? Plus, I believe it’s mostly filmed on location in Melbourne.
Phryne Fisher is perhaps the most amazing female character ever, and most definitely the best lady detective. She’s absolutely outrageous for the time, she’s a feminist, gloriously sassy and a badass.
It’s the 1920’s so you know it’s going to be glamorous, but wow—the detail on these costumes are insane. I wish I could just steal Phryne’s wardrobe, especially her cocktail dress and hat collections.
Despite all these amazing aspects, I would never continued with this show without some good murders and these are always great. They’re not your typical run of the mill storylines, they’ve all got that little touch of Melbourne that puts them apart from the rest.
Detective Inspector Jack Robinson
*fans self* I don’t even know how to begin to describe Jack Robinson, he’s just such a great character. Not only is he gorgeous, but he and Phryne have amazing chemistry which brings a little extra to the show.
So there you go, my top five reasons as to why you should watch Miss Fisher’s. Have I convinced any of you yet? Do you already watch the show?
