Are you obsessed with Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries? Because we sure are. We are Mary and Chandler, two women who can’t stop—won’t stop—talking about this amazing show. We loosely recap each episode and discuss its theme, what’s happening with the characters, the gorgeous sets and costumes, and the Phrack. Ohhh, the Phrack. We try to stay on topic, but the conversation usually takes on a life of its own. Oh, and the actual mystery? We barely talk about it. That’s not why we’re here!
