Wonderful sets and environment, fabulous clothes on all the actors, and in general good entertainment. As for Miss Fisher's character, she is generous to those in need but it is a mystery to me why she jumps into bed with just about any good looking man, including a black movie actor who is seen lying in a leg chain on her bed. He does not move at all, a distasteful scene for sure. As for her love interest, Jack, the inspector, she plays it coy and cute around him in spite of his puppy dog eyes.
All in all, it is fun to watch.
A charming series for fans of period mysteries!
Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries Season 2 brings you more of the characters and storylines you love. It’s fairly clear from a couple episodes into the series as a whole that the writers (and Kerry Greenwood, the author of the novels) have a formula for each episode. If you are not a fan of that formula, I don’t recommend continuing. That being said, I am a fan of that formula, and a big fan of those characters. We lose a bit of Jane this season, which was a touch disappointing, but there are consistent levels of Phryne, Jack, Dot, Hugh and the rest (although I do wish we’d see a little more of Dr. Mac), and more Aunt Prudence, who grows on you, I promise. There is also a whole new cast of side characters relating to each episode, with some that particularly stand out. I think my favourite episode of the season was The Blood of Juana the Mad (Episode 8), with Death on the Vine (Episode 10) and Murder Under the Mistletoe (the finale) as highlights. If I could have gone back and skipped one, it would have either been Framed for Murder (Episode 9) or Death Comes Knocking (Episode 2). It’s quite similar to the first season, in all honesty. If you liked that, keep going. If you didn’t, might as well skip right over the season.

Disc 4 almost unwatchable due to its condition.
Just finished watching series 2 which I thoroughly enjoyed. Is there a series 3 out there somewhere?
she reminder me of early Jessica Fletcher. in the murder she wrote show. She see things even the police don't see. I enjoy the show. I love her clothes too. she is very classy lady.
I really enjoyed these mysteries. Sexy, educational, entertaining, feministically fantastic!!!
Wonderfully entertaining. Great acting. Interesting stories. I wish they make the Series 3!
For the first time in maybe ... EVER ... I noticed the costumes almost as much as the vintage cars! Essie Davis is one of those women who seem to look good in everything, and they give her some stunning outfits. She never wears one twice. The stories are improbable but fun, like Agatha Christie. Ms. Davis has just starred in a horror movie called THE BABADOOK, which is getting some Oscar buzz. She looks nothing like Phryne Fisher.
All wonderful -- fashion, investigative procedure, awareness of lack of reproductive rights , unabashed feminist female protagonist who has a great sense of humor and irony. Interesting window to early 1900s treatment of women in Australia. Love the music and the fashions.
