Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries

Monday, September 21, 2015


The Huz and I got rid of cable in December. Since then I've been watching tons of older shows on Netflix and Amazon Prime and have found some new ones that are so fun. 

Does anyone else watch Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries? I binged the first two seasons and I love it!. Miss Fisher is a detective in Australia in the 1920s. She defies all normal social rules and basically does what she wants. I kinda love her. The period costumes are gorgeous, the supporting cast is wonderful, and each episode is like an Agatha Christie whodunit. Check it out if it sounds up your alley! 

What are you all watching that I should check out?

This is one of my absolute favourite series :D So glad you're enjoying it!

I've seen a few episodes and enjoyed them quite a bit. They are a rare instance where the film version is better than the books! I read the first book, Cocaine Blues by Kerry Greenwood, and found Phryne to be a horrible Mary Sue. Essie Davis has an incredible charm in the role that brings life to the character.

I was first introduced to Phryne in the books. I like the books too, and the series is somewhat different. Phryne is much more wild and free in the books and more than a little promiscuous. No judgment--just fact. Anyway, I like them both and I think Jack (Nathan Page) is wonderful.

Ana - I love it!

abibliophilesstyle - Isn't Essie Davis fantastic! You're making me glad I didn't read the books first... and I never say that!

annieb - Jack Page is wonderful in the show! I'm curious about the books now, but I enjoy the show so much I almost don't want to check them out.

Oh, this sounds perfect! I'll have to look for it. I finally finished the last season of Orange is the New Black and now need to get caught up on Orphan Black. I'm a huge fan of both Transparent and Bosch, both of which I'll re-watch before the new seasons appear on Prime this winter.

nomadreader - Love OITNB and Orphan Black! I'll have to check out Bosch.

I haven't heard of this show (it sounds fun) but my Huz and I want to get Season 4 of Homeland. A lot of spy angst!

thecuecard - We're seen season one and two of Homeland. We need to get caught up!

I read most of the books in the series - they're a lot of fun too but I believe the series is veering away from the books.

Glad to see this Aussie series is getting such a good run o/s :-)
