This series is Drop Dead Fabulous. I have been longing for a new period style murder mystery series. And Essie Davis is simply perfect and delicious as Phryne Fisher.

I have always been mad that Diana Rigg did not make more of the Mrs. Bradley Mysteries Series. So few episodes.

But now we have Essie Davis to take the torch and Forge ahead. Love Love Love this series.

Also Love the strong woman who won't let stupid male chauvinistic pigs push her around...and I am a male myself. She's smart, witty, caring and down right sexy. Who could ask for anything more? If you like smart murder mysteries, and not the stupid glossy trash we Americans produce, then this is the series for you. Cannot wait to see more future episodes. Thank you Netflix for offering this series on Instant View. Makes we want to keep up my monthly fee.

A Very Happy American
