Marvelously entertaining and stylish

Comments about PBS Masterpiece Mystery!: Agatha Christie's Poirot Series 1 DVD:

These are marvelously entertaining stories which feature the incredible acting of David Suchet as the eccentric, brilliant, impeccably mannered, and often humorous little Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot. His co-workers -- the helpful if naïve Captain Hastings, the efficient Miss Lemon, and the determined Inspector Japp -- are equally endearing. The 1930's style in clothing, architecture, manners, automobiles, etc. is a real treat for the eye, and so are the sometimes exotic locations (cruising the Mediterranean on an ocean yacht , vacationing in Rhodes, traveling by train), and the plots will keep you guessing.
Because I enjoy watching episodes in the same order in which they were originally broadcast, and also try to avoid buying duplicates, I experienced some confusion when it came time to actually make a purchase due to this series being released in a variety of collections by different networks and multiple vendors at different points in time. I found it well worth it to take a few minutes to do some research on Wikipedia's "List of Agatha Christie's Poirot Episodes" link. Of the twelve series available at the present time, Series One through Six can be found boxed into "The Early Cases Collection"; Series Seven through Ten are boxed into "The Definitive Collection"; and the episodes from Series Eleven and Twelve are scattered throughout "Movie Collection" numbers Four, Five, and Six.
Soooo... the simplest way for me to buy all available episodes (Series Thirteen has not yet been made) was to buy "The Early Cases", "The Definitive Collection", "Movie Collection Four", "Movie Collection Five", and "Movie Collection Six".
Although I hardly buy everything I enjoy on DVD, these definitely withstand multiple viewings, not only because of the high quality with which they're made, but because of the subtle clues woven into the intricate plots which are often overlooked during a first (often late night) watching.
