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, and it looks like Amazon Prime has it available as free streaming, also.
Bottom Line: If you enjoy Golden Age mysteries, period dramas, or just a good, clean tv show, give these a try.
Rating: Strongly Recommended
