I don't want to give too much away, cause you can watch it on Netflix. It's an adaption of Kerry Greenwood's Phryne Fisher Murder Mystery novels, with the protagonist an upper-class never-married woman, kind of an Upstairs-Downstairs meets feminist James Bond-type. (Her name is pronounced as in Fry-knee.) It's a bit edgy and socially conscious in that particular Australian style.
Well-written, well-acted and a good bit of humor. Here are a few reviews -
'Fisher is a sexy, sassy and singularly modish character. Her 1920s Melbourne is racy, liberal and a city where crime occurs on its shadowy, largely unlit streets.' -- Canberra Times
'If you have not yet discovered this Melbourne author and her wonderful books featuring Phryne Fisher, I urge you to do so now... In a word: delightful' -- Herald Sun
'Greenwood's strength lies in her ability to create characters that are wholly satisfying: the bad guys are bad, and the good guys are great.' -- Vogue
And the second season just started in September (yeah!) - in Australia (darn!)
Now on to episode 3!
