Agatha Christie's renowned Belgian detective resolves yet another slate of atmospheric British-themed crimes! Here is a synopsis of each episode. (I've rendered my own relative evaluation of each one on a 1-10 scale, 10 being the best):

VOLUME 1 (Disc One)

The Million-Dollar Bond Robbery -- At the behest of bank officials, Poirot and Hastings accompany a bank representative who is notorious for his gambling on the Queen Mary across the Atlantic to America -- the bank's assets are clearly in jeopardy of being stolen. But Poirot never gets to debark from the ship as the bank's bonds have apparently disappeared along the route so it's back to England in an attempt to solve the mystery. [ 7.5]

The Plymouth Express -- Christie enthusiasts will recognize this yarn as being loosely based upon The Mystery of the Blue Train (Hercule Poirot Series). A financial magnate's daughter is experiencing ex-husband difficulties just prior to re-kindling an old flame with a nefarious French Count. She journeys away in a train compartment, ostensibly for a weekend excursion, and is later discovered brutally murdered for her valuable and now-missing jewels. Poirot is called in by the girl's distraught father to ferret out the killer while Inspector Jap of Scotland Yard remains typically befuddled. [6.5]

Wasp's Nest -- The intellectual and refined son of one of Poirot's old acquaintances is affianced to an attractive and well-known model who is clearly bearing the burden of a past dark secret. Poirot and Hastings visit the privileged son and, while there, the master detective sniffs out a murder case... one which has yet to happen!

I'll keep this very simple: My wife and I can't watch TV. The programs we find on our television set seem to be written by and for people with Attention Deficit Disorder. After about five minutes of viewing, I am ready to do something as violent as the characters I'm watching. Enter Hercule Poirot, the elegant, brilliant French detective, who with sidekicks Captain Hastings and Miss Lemon provide hours of enjoyment. Throw in a little Chief Inspector Jaap, and you have the recipe for...wait a minute! Did I day French? I meant Belgian! Sorry.

... and get everyone like it that you can (all of three sets, better than none). If you are the lover of David Suchet's Poirot, as I am, this dvd collection is the one to start off with - accept no others.

Now this collection will be a bit on the rough side as far as video-transfer quality. It will bring back fond memories, I think, because these episodes, unlike those in Set 3, look just like they looked on A&E all those years ago. (Since I haven't seen the quality, I shudder to think what Set 1 looks like!)

An annoying habit of the market is to put out a "dvd collection" that is a few paltry episodes or bits of a series. Later ... WHAM!! ... the whole series or a newly configured set comes out, and you're angrier than a monkey with its tail burned off.

This dvd set is not like that. It is packed with the old favorite episodes. Sadly, at present only two other of these boxed sets are available:

"Agatha Christie's Poirot: The Classic Collection" - Set 1, Set 2, Set 3 and alas, no more - plus, each set is sold separately. Try not to go out on a limb with other collections unless you know them well, or unless the collection contains a film you particularly love.

These sets are not the only collections that have the original hour-long A&E Channel Poirot series, and there are other sets containing the two-hour specials. Not to mention the collection of the newer films from circa 1999 to 2010. (I have yet to see DEATH ON THE NILE which was promised back in 2010, but has never been shown on TV here; I have enjoyed EVIL UNDER THE SUN which was as dark as can be, vid. my review.

I really love the Poirot series. These are entertaining. Could be more affordable.

If you want this, and the other three Classic Collection sets, then you want: Agatha Christie's Poirot - The Classic Collection. These sets are the same as the Collector's sets Agatha Christie's Poirot: Collector's Set Volume 1 through Agatha Christie's Poirot: Collector's Set Volume 12. Don't be fooled into buying duplicate DVDs.

I own all but 2 of the Poirot series with David Suchet as Poirot. I will eventually purchase the whole series, and will be sad when I have come to the end. David Suchet has portrayed Poirot excellently.I do not compare the movies to the Agatha Christies books. I have not read the books but will someday. I enjoy setting down at days end, plugging in a DVD of Poroit and engulfing myself in a life style of England and the world of years ago. It is hours of entertainment that I can watch over and over.
Thank you
