“If you’re a Sherlock fan, check out Miss Fisher.” — tellyspotting
“This is television at its most entertaining, stimulating best.” — The Philadelphia Inquirer
Armed with a razor-sharp wit (and a ladylike pistol), Essie Davis (Game of Thrones, The Babadook, Australia) stars as the glamorous Miss Phryne Fisher, a lady detective in 1920s Australia with a fabulous sense of fun and a flair for solving crimes. The first three seasons are available in a value-priced collection. Based on the popular detective novels by Kerry Greenwood, the series is filmed on location in Melbourne with stellar period detail and production values. This Australian hit sparkles with wit and intrigue and has become a breakout hit with U.S. viewers and media. (Blu-ray 8-Disc set, DVD 11-Disc, 34 episodes plus bonus behind-the-scenes featurettes, cast interviews, and more, $119.99 each). Series 1 & 2 available on Acorn TV.
This is one of my favorite series from Acorn Media. Miss Fisher is a historical drama packed with intrigue and a little humor. Now you can get all three seasons in one box set! I love a good historical mystery and the roaring twenties in one of my favorite time periods. The costumes are stunning and each episode has a surprising ending. The settings are realistic and even the jazz club music helps to set the scene. But what I love most about this series is Miss Fisher herself. She holds a place of respect in a male-dominated world and it is a spot that is well-earned. Yet, she loses none of her femininity. Her style is flawless, her personality spunky, and her wits incredibly sharp. Follow Miss Fischer as she investigates clubs during prohibition and slinks fearlessly through dark alleyways. Not only does she come across as an amazing sleuth, she does it a carefree way that will leave you smiling once the danger has passed. If you enjoy shows with strong women, this is one you simply can't miss.
There are too many episodes in this series to go through each one, but to see my detailed thoughts on each series, check out my reviews from Series One, Series 2, and Series 3. Getting all there together for one price, makes this a great deal. So if you don't already own this series on DVD or Bluray. now is a great time to catch up. You can find the DVD set online at Acorn Media or on Amazon.
