Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries Season 2 brings you more of the characters and storylines you love. It’s fairly clear from a couple episodes into the series as a whole that the writers (and Kerry Greenwood, the author of the novels) have a formula for each episode. If you are not a fan of that formula, I don’t recommend continuing. That being said, I am a fan of that formula, and a big fan of those characters. We lose a bit of Jane this season, which was a touch disappointing, but there are consistent levels of Phryne, Jack, Dot, Hugh and the rest (although I do wish we’d see a little more of Dr. Mac), and more Aunt Prudence, who grows on you, I promise. There is also a whole new cast of side characters relating to each episode, with some that particularly stand out. I think my favourite episode of the season was The Blood of Juana the Mad (Episode 8), with Death on the Vine (Episode 10) and Murder Under the Mistletoe (the finale) as highlights. If I could have gone back and skipped one, it would have either been Framed for Murder (Episode 9) or Death Comes Knocking (Episode 2). It’s quite similar to the first season, in all honesty. If you liked that, keep going. If you didn’t, might as well skip right over the season.

For the first time in maybe ... EVER ... I noticed the costumes almost as much as the vintage cars! Essie Davis is one of those women who seem to look good in everything, and they give her some stunning outfits. She never wears one twice. The stories are improbable but fun, like Agatha Christie. Ms. Davis has just starred in a horror movie called THE BABADOOK, which is getting some Oscar buzz. She looks nothing like Phryne Fisher.

All wonderful -- fashion, investigative procedure, awareness of lack of reproductive rights , unabashed feminist female protagonist who has a great sense of humor and irony. Interesting window to early 1900s treatment of women in Australia. Love the music and the fashions.

In many ways, the second season of this series is a huge improvement to the first season. The stories are much better in this season. The actors, as always, are splendid in their roles. However, I thought the characters of Dot and Hugh were not as substantial in this season as in the first, which was disappointing because they're wonderful. Great costumes & sets too. Very enjoyable mystery series. Highly recommended.

This is a wonderful show. I highly recommend it. It has a little of everything: mystery, romance, action, philosophy, and a lot of humor. Love the actors, and it's fun to watch something set in Australia in the 20's. So glad that the second season is available now.
