I WANT TO BE PHRYNE FISHER.

Classic "whodunits" without too much gore, blood or attention to violence. A strong female presence not afraid of using both her intellect nor her sexuality. Great romantic arc between the most important characters also make the show fun to watch. Costumes, decor and cars are top-notch. Some mysteries are predictable for an old sleuth like me and there is too few suspects making it easy to know who did the deeds. Recurring characters have very little to do too most of the time.
