Art Deco Heaven!
Verified purchase
I'm in art deco heaven! The beautifully detailed sets get this series an immediate 3 stars in my book. I hope whoever was responsible for these incredibly detailed and accurate sets got lots of awards! The performances of the key players push it over the top--easily a 5-star production.

I was introduced to this series by watching the last few seasons, as the first several seasons were not at that time available. Now that they are, I am amazed at how solid the very first episodes of the series are. I was expecting the roughness one usually sees in the initial episodes of a long-running series, a mild sort of embryonic awkwardness as the actors gradually shift and adjust to fit comfortably into their roles; a process which is understandable and par for the course. But this series came out of the gate fully-formed! It's as if the whole ensemble had been playing these parts for years. It's tight and sleek and charming from the get-go. A wonderful and remarkable achievement!

David Suchet and the entire crew should be very proud. They have created a truly memorable work of art.

POIROT MOVE COLLECTION VERY WELL DONE
Verified purchase
There are six installments of the Poirot Movie Collection, almost all including three movies based on Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot mystery novels. It's very easy to portray Poirot in a way that his eccentricities dominate the story and make him seem more or less rediculous, when in fact Christie has been loved over many decades for her unusual lead detectives (male and female), diverse characters, plots, and unique way of writing. They may seem dated now in terms of the era(s) in which they are set, but I find this a significant part of their charm. In terms of the story lines, they remain absorbingly diverse and creatively conceived. The renditions here are the best I have seen.

PERSIST through the Entire Group of EPISODES - Each TITLE is incorrect. JOLLY GOOD VIEWING!
Verified purchase
As wonderful as I remember them on PBS! However, Amazon needs to correct the TITLES of each and every Episode - there are ALL a jumble.
HOORAY for David Suchet - and "Captain Hastings".

Poirot is the most entertaining detective series of Agatha Christie ...
Verified purchase
Poirot is the most entertaining detective series of Agatha Christie masterpieces. It has endured the test of time! His eccentricity, fastidiousness, powers of observation and so much more makes him a sleuth without equal. Very entertaining!!!

Hooray for David Suchet
Verified purchase
I have watched every movie and series made with David Suchet. It is pure entertainment, great guest actors, and always a good story line. No one can compare with actor Suchet. He portrays Poirot beautifully.

Agatha Christie would LOVE David Suchet as Poirot!!
Verified purchase
Poirot is the greatest character, and David Suchet IS him. The old Christie stories are a lot of fun, though I DO sometimes get lost. I love Captain Hastings and Miss Lemon, and Chief Inspector Japp is such a great contrast to the neat and prissy little Belgian. I wish there were endless episodes, I hate to get to the end of them.

What's Not to Love!
Verified purchase
I haven't seen these in YEARS!!! I thought they may not be out on video. So very glad they are. I could watch my Christis all day, and have! The movies are true to the books, and Suchet is true to Poirot! This is a good place to start if you haven't seen any of her books put to film....and, if you enjoy a good mystery, you'll be buying them all up...as I am! They are timeless which is the sign of wonderful writing. You can't go wrong with these which were put out by BBC. They love Ms. Christi and have made sure that she was done proud!

By far the best actor to portray Poirot, though the new movie was good as well.
