“Have you guys seen Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries??? It’s super awesome and the costumes are really great. You should TOTALLY write a review about it!”
This question has been asked, multiple times by multiple people over the last several months, so forgive me if I sound a little irritated. I’m tired of answering this question. So very tired.
For some reason, it’s always a question about Miss Fisher’s Mysteries, too. We occasionally field queries about other costume flicks that we’ve reviewed in the past, here or on the podcast, but inexplicably, Miss Fisher is the show that keeps coming up over and over. She haunts us. In fact, the post that Trystan wrote way back on April 30, 2015, about Phryne Fisher and her fine fashions was one of our most viewed posts ever. The traffic that came in off that one post helped make May 2015 our most viewed month since we started the site in August 2014. And yet, there’s this blackhole around it … Like something out of The Twilight Zone, or maybe a weirdly specific version of Groundhog Day, no one remembers the review, and we are, time and again, told we need to review it.
We’ve gently suggested that people take a look through our archives, or use the site search bar, if they’re curious to know if we’ve covered a specific show or movie. We’ve encouraged people to use the search engine of their choice, inputting the following phrase “Frock Flicks [insert title of film/TV show here]” to see if we’ve reviewed it. And yet … AND YET … we invariably arrive back at the question: “Have you guys seen Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries?”
Look, I’ve even taken the step of actually filming a video and uploading it to YouTube just to show anyone who may not be clear on how to search our site for information (about Miss Fisher or otherwise). Please watch it, learn from it. I’m teaching you all how to fish on this website so you will never starve for movie reviews again!
That said, I am REALLY close to ripping the kid gloves off and just start replying to this question with links to http://usethefuckinggoogle.com/ at this point. Consider this your warning.
