Set in Toronto during the 1920s, it follows the city's only female private detective as she takes on the cases the police don't want or can't handle. From airplanes and booze running to American G-men, Communists and union busters, Frankie's fearless sense of adventure gets her into all kinds of trouble, but she always manages to find her way out. In a time of change and hopefulness, Frankie is a woman ahead of everyone. She's a new detective for a new world. But is the world ready for her?

This series started out flat for me and my partner, but did get better as the season went on. Perhaps we were expecting more of a stronger women's role and of better stories, since we have been fans of the Murdoch Mysteries, as they shared the same production company, Shaftesbury Films.
We like how both series do not stray from the Canadian setting of the times, however this series lacks some of the smartly connected historical Toronto backdrop character, compared to the MM series.
Hoping for continued stronger angles and story to come in the following episodes.
I had also been spoiled by the short lived series of Agent Carter, with Hayley Atwell, playing the smart and curageous Peggy Carter, appearing in the 2011, Captain American: The First Avenger.

Watched this series on CBC and loved it. Must see it again! Interesting story lines, good acting, upbeat tone, and fresh ideas. Nice to see women depicted in a favourable light for a change!
