Sexist?
20 January 2013 | by (The San Francisco Bay Area) – See all my reviews

A very well staged who-dunnit TV drama, "Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries" definitely skews female with female leads, supports and their interests. Even so I'd be hard pressed to truly call it sexist, though one might interpret that from the overall presentation. But, if you watch the series not all males are malefactors, though some do seem a bit dim on occasion, not all are so ill conceived and presented.

Miss Fisher, a single woman, engages in detecting after a near family misalignment of ethics and law, precipitates in foul play, scoring a corpse as there result of murder. Set in 1920's Australia the visuals in terms of costuming and set decoration are a pleasure to see. Compliment that with some very competent thesping and direction, and the series has a definite appeal.

Some oif the stories are formulaic, and inject the usual social themes that have by now become rote for dramatic television, but the presentation again is top notch.

Well presented, designed for the female dem, combined with solid performances and production values, you can't really fault this series for much of anything other than being a product of our times.

Give a "go". If you're into "who done it" TV fare, then this series should entertain.

Enjoy.
