POIROT: "THE LABORS OF HERCULES"
August 18, 2014  | By David Bianculli

Acorn TV, Check local listings

 
This is the second of three final episodes of the long-running Poirot series, starring David Suchet as Agatha Christie’s stuffy, fussy Belgian detective. And like the first and third, it’s available, for now, only on the Acorn.TV website, whereas the other mysteries in the show’s 13-season run always have been shown in the U.S. on PBS. Tonight’s story has Hercule starting off by failing to both catch a killer and protect someone from harm, and falling into a deep depression as a result. But in a story that takes him on vacation to a breathtaking mountain retreat, he finds his spirit revived not by the scenery, but by another mystery. For my full review, visit NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross.
