As of today, we finished watching all the episodes of Agatha Christie’s Poirot starring David Suchet. We have always liked a good detective series and Agatha Christie’s is one of the best. It was bitter sweet to see it end. What will we do for our Sunday afternoon viewing now 😦 ?
Poirot, Hastings, Japp, and Ms Lemon made such a good team. They were always good fun. There was a subtle humor in the earlier series. The encounters between Japp and Poirot were so funny sometimes. As the series moved towards the late 90’s, it started becoming slightly darker. Hastings, Japp and Lemon are replaced with Ms Oliver, who is OK, but I preferred Hastings and Lemon by Poirot’s side. We were glad to see Hastings make a comeback for the last one and all of them get together in a couple of episodes before. We missed the humor in the later ones as it became darker and darker. The series was brilliant and the darkness suited the episodes well but I guess I wanted to see Hastings and Japp more 😉
I haven’t read any of the books depicted in the series (except may be a couple) but one day I would love to read all of them and then re-watch the episodes again. This is one series which I can watch again and again and never get tired of it.
I am sad to see it end but glad to have watched it all. Until next time, old chap!
