So I started watching a fantastic australian tv show based on a serie of mystery books and it is officially the BEST THING EVER! STOP WHAT YOU'RE CURRENTLY WATCHING (Games of Thrones season finale is today anyway so better start contemplating what you'll watch next right?) AND GO SEARCH FOR THIS.
Well, Miss Fisher's murder mysteries ofc.
Two episodes and I'm seriously in love with all the major characters. We have a priceless witty rich heir, an intelligent but reluctant inspector, a cute catholic shy girl who believes that electricity is the Devil himself, a pair of daredevils bolchevik ninja heroes, a butler who can fight and an adorable teddy bear constable.
IT IS EVERYTHING I ALWAYS DREAMED OF.
The intro generic is wonderful and very well done. It reminds me a bit of The Borgias one except it's in the 20's.
So meet Phryne Fisher, rich heiress who just abandonned the fine english society to return to Australia.
Her best friend who is a woman, wears only manly costumes AND is a doctor, comes to search for her at the port. I don't think it can get better than that.
Phryne Fisher is witty, loves adventure, quite fearless, has a gun with her and is always very fashionable. She's invited to a nice cup of tea but of course, she arrives at a pretty bad moment since the man of the house just died :).
This is the maid Dorothy, she is adorable <33.
You can almost ear "A murder? This is Christmas!" in this cap. Because you know when you're invited for tea and the man is dead you just go around the house and search for clues.
One person isn't very happy though with Miss Fisher screwing around and it's Inspector
She trolls him on this scene it's hilarious!
Meanwhile, one of the previous maid in this house, starts bleeding in a cab. That's where we meet Bert and Cec. Nice, cute street guys who happen to have good hearts full of Lenin's ideology (we are in the 20's after all) and wear those hats like no others.
Phryne Fisher then starts her investigation. It's a hard job, you know.
Harder when it involves an handsome French-russian professional dancer named Sasha.
Already shipping it.
So I'm not going into the details because it's a good episode (the second one is even better so I'm hopeful about the all serie right now) but know that Phryne taps that french-russian ass (quite literally, you'll see that in a future cap).
Notice the hair before the sex.
That screencap is for the fantastic hat. Look at this! Perfect.
Phryne is all "I'm going to buy you a real car after this" to Bert and Cec. Guuuuuuuuuuurl ^^.
There's a moment where you see Phryne seeping a bit of cocaine (it's for the investigation but she rather enjoys it) and then there's another one (I took the screencap) where you see the name of the street:
Baker Street the hee!! Told you she was a better dressed female version of Sherlock. Well awfully sociable though ^^.
At one point, they need Inspector Robinson's intervention and lol he already facepalms.
I feel like you're going to do that A LOT Jack ^^.
Remember what I said about tapping Sasha's ass? Well she does it again. You gotta love her. Seriously.
In the end, Phryne decides to have all her friends and new ones to celebrate:
So there's Dot (Dorothy the maid, her maid now), Dr Quinn!BFF, Bert and Cec. And guess who arrives? Inspector Robinson and constable Hugh.
Which is perfect because she can now announce to everyone that she's going to be a private detective.
He is thrilled.
CAN YOU TELL HOW MUCH I LOVE ALL OF THEM ALREADY? You all need to bask in it because I need squeeeeeeee buddies! Anyway, what is not to be liked XD!
