That's my dilemma after watching all 13 episodes of Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries streaming through Netflix. There was a second season (and no more) but, alas, it's not currently available on Netflix.
At The Frog & PenguINN we have two flat panel 26-inch TVs, small by today's mega-screen standards. But, we don't subscribe to any cable/satellite services. Instead, our viewing (TV shows/movies) is done via online streaming through Netflix or Amazon Prime.
That said, we're always looking for something "new" in the sense of something we've never seen, even if a show or movie is not currently current.
On a friend's recommendation (thanks, Martha), I recently added Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries to my Netflix list. A scant week later, after watching the first season, I'm hooked and hope that Netflix adds the second season. Sadly, there wasn't a third one.
Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries is an Australian television drama series, first broadcast on ABC1 (Australian PBS channel) in February 2012. The series, based on author Kerry Greenwood's Phryne Fisher Murder Mystery novels, was created by Deb Cox and Fiona Eagger. You can definitely see that these female producers have brought a distinct style to the show.
The series revolves around the personal and professional life of Phyrne (rhymes with briny) Fisher, a glamorous private detective in 1920s Melbourne (portrayed by Essie Davis). The first series was filmed over a six-month period in and around Melbourne from July 2011; each episode had a budget of $1 million. A second series was commissioned in August 2012 with a filming start in February 2013 and aired from September 2013 until concluding with a Christmas special in December 2013.
The series setting is 1928 Melbourne, scene of jazz clubs, and an endless array of murders and scheming crooks. The Honorable Phryne Fisher (referred to as "Miss Fisher") is a wealthy aristocrat and a self-styled private detective who, with the assistance of her maid, Dot, and taxi driver friends Bert and Cec solves all manner of crimes. Miss Fisher is no ordinary aristocrat; she can fly a plane, drive her own car, and wear trousers. However, , she manages also to maintain so much style and class.
