Remastered-Orig UK order Poirot Early Cases set is 45 mysteries solved by Poirot, the masterful Belgian `little gray cell' man who forever out-sleuths Scotland Yard. David Suchet is Poirot, enough said. It's a repackaging for the advantage of those who have not purchased them singly. Advanced picture quality, and I am told by my Blu-ray user friends, the best Poirot yet. All Agatha Christie stories make it fantastic, but Suchet makes the film adaptations soar to new heights. Humor, fantastic scenery & costuming appear. Poirot stories began in 1920 and the fictional character was granted a 1975 NYTimes front page obit.
Episodes are loaded with guest stars as well as regular recurring characters such as CI Japp (Philip Jackson), Hastings (Hugh Fraser) Poirot's right-hand, Miss Lemon (Pauline Moran).

SUBTITLES available for all 45 episodes. Airing began in1992. Masterpiece Mystery! It is CLASSIC UK sleuth TV, as applauded as the original books.

You can read a short summary for each of the episodes by clicking on the provided links to individual series and read my, Harold Wolf, fuller reviews. Simply too long to add them here.

I got into Poirot when I started to borrow them from the local library. I think the first one I ever saw was Murder on the Links, which was fine but I did not think too much of it, it was just something to watch for free that was somewhat amusing. However, as I continued to borrow them and watch them I began to fall in love with the show and the characters. I won't go into much detail about who's who and why they are so wonderful because if you are considering buying this collection you already know all that.

It was not long before I knew that I had to own every bit of David Suchet's Poirot but while I was ready to do the work to find out which episodes are in which collection, I was not ready to shell out a bunch of money to buy them individually. The release of Agatha Christie's Poirot: The Early Cases is a gift from above. In the order of the original U.K. broadcast, it collects the first 6 series in 6 individual cases (with 3 DVDs in each case) in a lovely outer box. They are great for someone who does not have any of the earlier DVDs but they are also perfect for those who are seeking an upgrade. I have watched some of the original versions from the library so I can compare. The new DVDs are remastered, making the picture quality much more crisp and best of all they now come with subtitles. The DVD menu is also different with a polished new look and easy navigation capability.

At one point I was thinking of waiting until they come out with Poirot: The Complete Collection but series 13 is yet to be aired, which is the last one but who could wait that long? Also, I am not sure if there will ever be a North American release of the complete collection. Acorn Media holds the rights to series 1 - 6 and 11 - 13, while A&E owns series 7 - 10, which are 12 feature length movies.

I had some of these episodes on DVD and decided to get this complete version on Blu-Ray. I could not be more pleased with the picture quality, and it is great to have all the episodes in one set in original order. Donate all your old DVD versions to your local public library and buy this Blu-Ray version - you will love it.

The numbers of reviews submitted for the various multi-episode packages of David Suchet's portrayal of Agatha Christie's beloved Belgian detective Hercules Poirot is testament enough as to its popularity, with many going into considerable detail about each episode covered.

I'm not about to clog up the reviews with more of the same. If you know who Poirot is there's no need, and if you don't, many of these other great reviews will fill you in nicely. I simply wish to say that each meticulously portrays the time period (1920s to 1940s before the series reaches its end) as only British productions can, and with actors who do not overplay their roles in sticking as closely as possible to Agatha Christie's books.

As some have noted, these original episodes have more of an Art Deco and often brighter and less-brooding look to them with the semi-regular characters of his aide, Captain Arthur Hastings (Hugh Fraser), his secretary Miss Felicity Lemon (Pauline Moran), and Scotland Yard Chief Inspector James Harold Japp (Philip Jackson), each of whom more or less faded from Christie's books after entering the mid- to late-1930s.

The later episodes, some of which were produced by the A&E Network but still stuck flawlessly to the period in appearance, began to take on a darker side in their storylines (as did her books), with the only recurring characters being George, his valet, and detective fiction writer Ariadne Oliver (played by the brilliant actress Zoë Wannamaker).

The only episodes not yet available on DVD are those of the final season, which were filmed the past year - Elephants Can Remember, The Big Four, The Labours Of Hercules, Dead Man's Folly, and Curtain. The last, which brings our favourite detective, now wheelchair-ridden, back to Styles, now a retirement residence but where it all began, also sees his death.

I have them all to date, and can't wait for these to be broadcast and then finally made available on DVD.
