‘MY LIFE IS MURDER,’ SERIES TWO: LUCY LAWLESS RETURNS AS FIESTY & FUN DETECTIVE

August 26, 2021 5 Comments

Anytime I become addicted to a new TV show from Acorn TV, the season ender comes all too soon. This is true of their sassy New Zealand show. With short season runs but entertaining and interesting stories, Acorn brings back My Life is Murder series two with our leading lady reprising her role as the intelligent detective.

My Life is Murder (2021) Acorn TV Show Review

Everything is quite different for Alexa Crow (Lucy Lawless). She’s now living in her home country, New Zealand complete with new digs and a new cat, but she still sells her bread to a bakery. When her police friend from Australia recommends her to one of his local pals, Harry (Rawiri Jobe) engages Alex’s services to discover why a woman killed, seemingly, a stranger.

Just as Alexa begins work on the case, her annoying and bubbly friend and helper, Madison (Ebony Vagulans) appears on her door ready to get back to work. Despite Alex’s hints, Madison doesn’t appear to want to leave and so they again settle into their routine of working together, all in the aid of police cases that seem to have no leads.

Same as with its first season, My Life is Murder produces another ten episodes that are super good. Basic though this sounds, it’s true. The show does deal in some serious issues, but it does so in a way that allows the humor to shine through. This is where the series is at its best. Lawless has a great sense of almost dry wit whereas Vagulans is the bubblier counter-part (and she’s still as adorable a “sidekick” as ever). There’s many missing faces this time, but we get nearly mirror character replacements with a new bakery owner and of course, the cop.

Being set in New Zealand makes the show more fun, too and I love seeing the various different places Alexa visits (from city to beach and back again). There’s lots of good things to say about this production; as usual, it all looks really good and the cast plus their friendships makes it exciting to see how everything will play out. There’s some really interesting cases, too, which will be sure to keep us guessing.

Catch the second series U.S. debut on August 30 on Acorn TV.

Content: there is some suggestive conversation or “jokes” about sex, etc. One episode deals exclusively in cross dressing. There’s some violence and flashbacks to the crimes. Nothing ever looks graphic. The show is TV-14.

Sincere thanks to Acorn TV for the opportunity to view screeners of My Life is Murder, series two; all opinions are my own.
