‘FRANKIE DRAKE MYSTERIES,’ SEASON THREE: RETURN FOR MORE FUN!

May 28, 2021 2 Comments

One of the more entertaining (and underrated?) series on TV, the fearless (and blonde!?) detective is back. This time for more adventure and possible danger, too.

Frankie Drake Mysteries, Season Three (2020) CBC TV Review

Vacationing in London reintroduces Frankie Drake (Lauren Lee Smith) to someone from her days in military service. But as it turns out, he may also be someone she has a personal past with. Their reunion is cut short when Frankie meets the famous Agatha Christie (Honeysuckle Weeks), a woman worried about the disappearance of a mutual friend of theirs.

Together, the crime sleuths puzzle through and follow the clues. What they discover surprises them both, and leads them to something they didn’t think they’d find.

This is, without question, one of the more fun period drama series on television. It’s easy, light viewing with a cast that’s really likable. This set of ten cases leads Frankie from London, back to Canada, to classical music and a get rich scheme. Although they don’t join her in London, the rest of the usual gang (Flo, Mary and Trudy) remain a part of this third season. There are all sorts of funny and good time in these episodes, the next to last season for the show.

Aside from the “big” change that is Frankie’s new blonde ‘do, this show remains the same in the way of its camaraderie. There’s so many strong bonds of friendship, however it does wade into more contemporary PC themes. This is especially true for Mary who is inspired to make a statement or two. While I don’t always appreciate some of the modern viewpoints writer’s bring in (that’s NOT why I’m watching period drama), I still enjoy most of these episodes. There are some fun installments and some more serious ones. Then there’s the return of a romantic interest that crops up now and again.

If you haven’t watched any of these Frankie Drake Mysteries seasons or episodes, you might consider watching them. There’s lots of fun in each show, and they’re reminiscent of something like its station peer Murdoch Mysteries. Everyone is fantastic investigative crew, and it’s grand fun to see a guest star like Honeysuckle Weeks (Foyle’s War) in something new. Basically, these are (in case I didn’t say it in so many words) a dang good time.

Thank you for visiting! Please, come back soon.

Content: there’s some innuendo, and suggestive visuals (Frankie is quite the flirt), but nothing graphic. There’s some violence and PC themes that enter some of the scripts.
