Good show

Phrynie is a strong female character (and the lead) who doesn’t listen to what anyone has to say (especially men) sexual relations (with many men) are implied, but nothing is shown past kissing and male chest nudity.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
age 18+

Strong female lead is inspiring

The things I enjoy the most: Phryne's amazing wardrobe, her relationship with Jack, and the example of strong feminine leadership without sacrificing feminine nurturing. Wonderful show for a mature audience. Many history lessons and love-your-neighbor messages as well.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
