While some 27 year olds might consider a night out on the town to be the epitome of a great Saturday evening, this is what I’ve got lined up: Agatha Christie’s Poirot, chocolate chip cookies, and a crochet project. I couldn’t be happier. And no, I was not more exciting before I got pregnant.
Agatha Christie’s Poirot is a tv adaptation of (naturally) Agatha Christie’s Poirot mysteries. Starring David Suchet, they are excellently done. There are several seasons, so it’ll be a long time before you run out. Obviously, some of them are more well done than others, and some of them follow the books more closely than others, but they’re just a fantastically fun watch. Most of them are “tv-hour” long episodes, but there are some movie length ones as well. Netflix now has the first parts of SIX seasons on instant view!
Bottom Line: If you enjoy Golden Age mysteries, period dramas, or just a good, clean tv show, give these a try.
Rating: Strongly Recommended
