My Life Is Murder Plot: What is it about?
The story of ‘My Life Is Murder’ is primarily centered around Alexa Crowe, a fearless and confident former homicide detective. She is now a private investigator, who solves baffling crimes, after being asked by her ex-colleague and long-time friend Detective Inspector Kieran Hussey. He seeks her consultation on the more twisted cases. And of course, with Alexa’s deep-rooted interest in mysteries, she simply cannot refuse the offer.
Each episode presents viewers with a new murder case, where Alexa jumps in to solve it, using her instinctive skills. She is witty and most of the time, her actions are accompanied by her own humorous commentary. She is extremely empathetic and blunt, a trait which is at times considered rude by her peers. She possesses some unique skills and insights that make her understand the darker quirks of human nature — enabling her to navigate around puzzling clues and finally revealing the truth. Apart from the regular chaos, Alexa also grieves the loss of her husband. She has a pet cat and is herself a mysterious female, as nobody knows why she left the force in the first place.
Joining Alexa in her crime-solving quests is the forever bubbly, sarcastic, ambitious and grounded, Madison. She is employed as a Data Analyst for the Police and serves as Alexa’s assistant.
‘My Life Is Murder’ has many elements that make it an appealing show, especially for fans of thrillers. One reason is, of course, its Australian accent, that makes its dialogue delivery extra attractive. Again, its choice of mystery stories is extremely creative. The crimes are not too dark but they are fun to watch. Each hour-long episode, that features a new case, manages to keep viewers engaged until it is solved. Finally, we get to see Lucy Lawless in all her glory. To describe in one word, she is ‘brilliant’! Set against the ever-changing and bustling backdrop of Melbourne, it is a treat to watch Alexa as she navigates personal frustrations and brutal homicides — with her sharp, unapologetic, and relentless attitude.
In season 2, it is a given that we are going to see Crowe solve new murder cases.
