The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency

This says Season 1 on the Netflix packets, but I can't find any indication that there's been/going to be a second season. It has seven episodes (filled in over year-end last year) but eight hours because the first episode is two hours. This is based on the Alexander McCall Smith books.

In Botswana, Precious is raised by her father to see and hear and feel and smell all the things around her, so when he dies and leaves her a batch of cattle, she sells them and starts The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency in Botswana. Precious is played by Jill Scott who is an American and has had quite a career as a singer. She does a great job in this series, too.

She solves crimes in every episode and she solves them in ways that you might not expect. She has personal problems to solve, too, and sometimes they interact. There was one ongoing set of crimes where I knew the criminals from the beginning and she didn't, but otherwise, I really enjoyed this.

I enjoyed the plots, the acting, the filmography, the music!, and everything else. The season ends nicely so you won't be left hanging. I definitely really recommend this series.
