I love this show, however in this episode a date was mentioned, January 1990. I believe the show is set in the late 1920's, the date mentioned was a reference to the past. I feel like detective Miss Fisher.

It is wonderful to see my hometown, Melbourne fashioned in this era. As I now live in the United States I do not know if there will be more than two seasons. I hope there is, as I really enjoy the marvelous costumes, makeup and the action sequences. Miss fisher is somewhat of a local James Bond if you will, stylish, daring and wickedly charming. It's refreshing to see a period piece once again from Australia, it's something we do best.
