Why you should watch Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries on Netflix streaming (U.S.)

This is Phryne Fisher. She’s a daring forty-something woman living in Australia during the 1920s with enough money to live it up and a wardrobe that’ll make you cry. 

image

She decides she’s going to become a private detective, so she does. She has a pearl handled pistol in her handbag and a dagger in her garter.

image

Her adventures sometimes require undercover work. Such as circus performer. 

image

And if she’s not in an adorable hat, she has a sparkly headband. Of course.

image

And every now and then her lesbian bestie visits in the greatest tweeds and brogues. 

image

Did I mention the clothes?

image

She prefers younger men

image

Plural. 

image

But you’ll totally ship these two.

image

She knows how to fly planes, 

image

and teaches young girls self defense on top of table manners.

image

But these two are the cutest most innocent couple you’ll ever see. Seriously cute.

image

 There’s so much more, but you’ll just have to watch it. The first season is on Netflix streaming in the U.S. so I hope you enjoy this kick-ass lady. She’s seriously cool. image

I’d like to put together a more coherent “WATCH THIS SHOW YOU ASSHOLES RIGHT THE FUCK NOW,” but honestly this covers all the bases. I mainlined both seasons (it just got renewed for its 3rd) in three days, and by the end of it I was unable to make any sounds but BWEEE so, you know.

But honestly dudes, if you are looking for something totally different and yet really reliable - something that you can watch with your family or with your girlfriends and have a faboo time either way - then LOOK NO FURTHER. The first season is on Netflix, the second season is on acorn.tv (along with a number of other excellent british/aussie television shows), and I could be persuaded to inform you as to where you might be able to find less licit copies of the episodes. Two seasons, 13 episodes, and a weird Australian-style “Christmas” special - I promise, it’s totally worth your while.

"

Everyone suddenly burst out singing;
And I was filled with such delight
As prisoned birds must find in freedom,
Winging wildly across the white
Orchards and dark-green fields; on - on - on - and out of sight.

Everyone’s voice was suddenly lifted;
And beauty came like the setting sun:
My heart was shaken with tears; and horror
Drifted away … O, but Everyone
Was a bird; and the song was wordless; the singing will never be done.

"
