Along with her partner Trudy, Frankie and the Drake Detective Agency take on cases of all shapes and sizes.

I Admit I'm Biased
20 November 2020 | by tedphxSee all my reviews

I love Lauren Lee Smith.

I see people have criticized every aspect of this series and all of that criticism misses the mark. The whole series is an anachronism. No, you wouldn't see and hear many of the things in this series if you lived in the twenties, most specifically, the women themselves. It's a fantasy, a pleasing, one that never fails to bring a smile to my face, and whenever Wendy Crewson makes an appearance, the series exceeds it's already delightful celebration of what women would have been if they'd been liberated sooner.

As for Ms.Smith, If you've seen her in The Listener, it's impossible not to like her forever. For some reason, they seem to have actually chosen to de-glamorize her as Frankie Drake... but they failed. She still shines.

A broader question: why are Canadian series generally much better produced and so much more intelligent than what's produced in America?
