My rating for this set would have been five-stars, but for one messed-up episode.

I was especially looking forward to two of the episodes in this collection, “Curtain” and “The Big Four”. I should have known when I saw that Mark Gatiss was writing “The Big Four” that it would be a disaster. And it was. Based on what he has helped to do to Sherlock Holmes, it was obvious that this would be just as bad. (Well, actually nothing is as bad as what they’ve done to Sherlock Holmes.) I suppose that I’m glad that someone kept Mr. Gatiss from placing Poirot in the year 2014 and tucking a cell-phone up under his long flowing hair while babbling on and on about his OCD.

As a viewer and owner of all of the David Suchet “Poirot” films, and also having read every single original Poirot short story, novel, and even play multiple times, I understand the need to make some changes when transitioning from page to screen. Some of the original short stories were so short that they had to be padded or changed for television. When some of them were pretty much rewritten as completely original teleplays instead of presenting the original material, I was just happy to have substantially new Poirot stories, even if they were presented under the same titles as previously printed works. I even understood why “The Labors of Hercules” in this set was adapted the way it was. (That book of short stories should have been made into a whole 12-episode series on its own, and since it remains essentially unfilmed at the end of the process, to my mind Suchet did NOT end up playing Poirot in every story as he has indicated. Still, it was an amazing run.)

But the episode “The Big Four” was different. There were parts of it that should NOT have been changed or eliminated.
