I liked it too!  I enjoyed Malkovich's take on Poirot.  I couldn't quite believe that twist in his personal history, though.  (Have you got to that bit yet?)

 

Yes, I prefer Malkovich's characterisation of Poirot rather than the usual pompous little guy. Interested to read even Christie was sick of him by 1960 and described him as " insufferable and a detestable, bombastic, tiresome, ego-centric little creep", although I wouldn't quite go that far :lol:

No, I've only seen flashbacks to what I assume is his escape from Belgium during WW1?

Yep Beecham House was a bit wishy-washy, OK for Sunday nights but makes Downton Abbey look like Chekhov!  And the dialogue was atrocious.

 

A bit eye-rolling really, wasn't it, but you kind of wanted to see what happens in the end. I wonder if they'll make another series?

 

I watched the first episode of Wild Bill and thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm becoming a fan of Bronwyn James, I like her in The ABC Murders and she's excellent as DC Muriel Yeardsley, a very smart and intelligent cop who is also kind.

I quite enjoyed Wild Bill, although it didn't seem to be able to decide whether it wanted to be a comedy or a drama, as it didn't really work as a comedy/drama!  Great setting though, and I agree that Muriel was definitely the best character. I thought I'd seen her in something else, so must have been the ABC Murders.

Nearly finished The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance on Netflix. 

 

Still not sure where this is heading, but if you are a fan of the original film - or animation in general - this is a must watch series. 

 

More when I'm done.
