5.0 out of 5 stars Don't confuse COLLECTIONS with SERIES/SEASONS, 2 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Agatha Christie's Poirot - Collection 9 [DVD] (DVD)
There are 9 "COLLECTIONS" in which are contained all episodes of Poirot played by David Suchet. There are also 13 "SERIES" (or SEASONS) of Poirot. If you are collecting all the Poirot's, stick to one or the other, then never the twain shall duplicate. (eg. COLLECTION 8 contains the same four episodes as SERIES 12)

COLLECTION 9 is: "Elephants Can Remember"; "The Big Four"; "Dead Man's Folly"; "The Labours of Hercules" and, finally "Curtains". (same as SEASON/SERIES 13) Brilliant, but darker and more sombre than any previous collection.

while the sentiment is helpful as you say to not duplicate episodes.. when it comes to cost common sense has to prevail & we buy the series or collection containing episodes we dont have for the cheapest price. ideally it is nice to have 'matching' collections but this is not always affordable or possible. surely as long as the episodes are listed here there should be no confusion choosing one over the other. cheers

Dear ksserar. The confusion arises when some people do not realize that the episodes contained in the SEASONS boxed sets are different from the episodes in the COLLECTIONS boxed sets. There are 13 SEASONS but only 9 COLLECTIONS. Some people do not know this. (nothing to do with cost or having 'matching' boxes on the shelf.)
