I always enjoy the Poirot episodes. If you haven't seen
them before... they're more like movies than a TV series.
Each episode is very long and has a self-contained mystery.
David Suchet plays Poirot splendidly.
There are 4 movies in this disk set and each are very
enjoyable. The first one starts with a woman being hanged
for a murder! In the second one, a young woman is accused of
murder. The third one is "Death on the Nile", which was also
a great movie in the 80's. Several people get murdered in
that one. The last one has a man murdered, and his wife may
or may not have done it. They are all very good.
If you like murder mysteries, these Poirot mysteries are
fun to watch! Sadly, there are not features or extras.
That's a real shame.
