Anyone who either loves Agatha Christie or that type of genre will love this. David Suchet is masterful. Shame there is not as much Capt Hastings but I guess he was busy playing Wellington in the Sharpe series

Format: DVD
I got this info from amazon.com, as I wanted to make sure that I didn't buy something I already have!!!! Below is what this series consists of (AND YES, THERE IS CLOSED CAPTIONING!):

David Suchet returns as Hercule Poirot, Agatha Christie's endearingly fastidious sleuth, in three baffling new cases based on her classic novels. As seen on the "PBS Masterpiece Mystery!" series.

Disc 1
Three Act Tragedy
Deadly Dinners Whet Poirot's Investigative Appetite

While visiting the Cornish coast, Hercule Poirot (David Suchet) attends a dinner at which one of the guests suddenly dies. An inquest finds no evidence of foul play. But Poirot's host, renowned stage actor Sir Charles Cartwright, thinks otherwise, and another death at a later party with the same guests seems to confirm his suspicions. Together with Sir Charles and his vivacious friend Egg, Poirot applies 'la technique classique''eliminating the suspects, one by one.

Disc 2
The Clocks
Poirot Identifies A Man Whose Time Ran Out

While trying to unmask a mole at Dover's military base, Lt. Colin Race enlists Poirot to help him aid a pretty secretary apparently framed for murder. Called to a residence on a quiet street for a temporary typing job, she found only a man's corpse lying on the floor. No one can identify the body, find a murder weapon, or explain the presence of four strange clocks'none of which belongs in the home, and all of which stopped at 4:13.

Disc 3
Hallowe'en Party
Poirot Looks For Ghosts From A Young Girl's Past

Wholesome fun at Woodleigh Common turns harrowing when a children's Halloween party ends in the murder of 13-year-old Joyce Reynolds.

For those newly discovering Poirot, for fans upgrading image, Poirot is 6 star. June 27 2012
By Harold Wolf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
It's REMASTERED. Of course it's reissued as series 6. 4 Poirots. Previously aired/released episodes, but now with better picture. According to friends using Blu-ray, it's great if you have a large screen. Excellent on normal DVDs too. Sets being offered are in original UK airing order. I've listed episodes, so check and see if you already own them.
If not, this is a grand opportunity for those new to this Belgian with `little gray cell' who out-sleuths `The Yard.' David Suchet made Poirot famous. Philip Jackson plays Chief Inspector Japp in 2 episodes. Hastings (Hugh Fraser) Poirot's right-hand arrives in two episodes. Miss Lemon (Pauline Moran) is back for one episode.

I've never been disappointed with Poirot. Agatha Christie stories always fantastic, but Suchet makes adaptations soar to new heights. Humor, scenic bliss, and costumes rival script brilliance. It's tough cutting books to 100 TV minutes. This series does it well. Trivially note: Poirot fictional character was granted a 1975 New York Times front page obit.

SUBTITLE option available for all 4 feature-length episodes. Guest stars aplenty, as normal.
~~~~~Hercule Poirot's Christmas- 1995
The detective Poirot takes a holiday. A family Christmas gathering leaves a man murdered, apparently by one of his adult children. So much for a cozy Christmas by the Yule log.
~~~~~Hickory Dickory Dock- 1995
Petty theft turns to murder in a heartbeat, or lack of. Miss Lemon convinces Poirot to look in crime in her sister's hostel. See Jonathan Firth playing Nigel, yes Colin's brother.
~~~~~Murder on the Links- 1996
Poirot's and Hastings' reputations travel to France. Oui, Oui, more murder, kidnapping, downright nasty crime for the pair to sleuth. Some just die for a game of French golf.
~~~~~Dumb Witness- 1996
It's more than a family affair, and estate planning. Poirot and Hastings solve a murder through strange means. Communications with..."Speak doggie, speak." I first saw Kate Buffery starring in the good "Wish Me Luck" war series.

Movie Collection 2 gets re-mastered in Hi-Def from original film masters. Sept. 3 2012
By Paul J. Mular - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
For Series 6 LWT (London Weekend Television) ran out of short stories and reverted back to the two hour format used in season 4, drawing stories from the longer Poirot Novels. (Series 5 used the Short Stories.)
This would be the last series for LWT to produce Poirot. Granada Television would do a hostile take over of LWT and the Poirot series would go on hiatus until the A&E Network would pick it up in 2000.
Technically this would not be a real broadcast season as it was spread out over three years. It is just the last of the LWT productions.

The classic two hour mysteries are:

42 6-01 01/January/95 "HERCULE POIROT'S CHRISTMAS"
43 6-02 12/February/95 "HICKORY, DICKORY, DOCK"
44 6-03 11/February/96 "MURDER ON THE LINKS"
45 6-04 16/March/97 "DUMB WITNESS"

Even though these were filmed in 16mm, re-mastering them in Hi-Definition from the original 16mm camera films will produce a sharper image than the old 1995/1997 standard definition transfers made from 16mm copies, created from 16mm dupe negatives.

Now if only A&E would re-master their series 7, 8, 9, &10 from the original films, UNCUT. Yes the old A&E DVDs have some edits.

Poirot Entertains Again July 4 2012
By Tony Marquise Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
I have all the modern(BBC) David Suchet DVDs of him playing Poirot. All of them are very entertaining and are more enjoyable than 98% of anything else on TV. Watch them all and be happy.

LOVE POIROT!!! Sept. 13 2013
By Saundra Dawson - Published on Amazon.com
We love all the episodes, watch them over & over. We own one box collections.
The historic buildings & locations, interior decor, vintage clothing & automobiles.
The story lines & plots are intriguing, delightful humor and always a twist & surprise endings.
Last, but certainly not least, the characters are superb actors, especially David Suchet;
his facial expressions speak volumes. Very well done. We actually prefer British TV over
American. We're also Sherlock Holmes fans; own the entire collection, and a book containing
all the writings.

oooh those little grey cells! Aug. 23 2013
By the great she-bear - Published on Amazon.com
I have spent the last month binging on the first six seasons of Poirot [free with Prime] and am now re-watching them from the beginning and enjoying every minute of the experience. Ahhh the eye candy! Art Deco - glam ladies and gents in high fashion 1930's London [and trips out and about to seashore, Europe, Lake Country, etc] All is perfectly framed gorgeous scenery and sets - tho the sets are on-location - always with the Art Deco streamlined crisp clean, opulent sophistication . yum. Oh - the mysteries themselves? Clever, always successfully entertaining - the primary characters are perfect in their parts, and each individual personality remains constant thru all the seasons [acting is superb, by the way, hard to pull off, as its all really a bit silly over-the-top camp thirties], David Suchet is some kind of genious / artist to pull of Poirot with all his supercilious egotistical, mincing perfectionism - Well, the whole thing is a gently played tongue-in-cheek running-jokes comedy... Such a great show! And yes, Mssr. Poirot's "little grey cells" come through time and time again - explaining to all the answer to the Great Murder Mystery [or whatever] of the Moment ... [have I effused enthusiasm enough to whet your interest? Magnifique!
