Nero Wolfe

(no subject)

I missed the new version of Murder on the Orient Express that aired this weekend, but was able to catch up on it on the PBS website. (It does actually have the full episodes available for viewing, at least for ten days after they air, though it tries to fob you off with 30 second promos. Just continue to coax, massage, and wrestle with the web site until it coughs up the episode you want to see.)

It was an excellent version of the story, and if you saw the David Suchet on the Orient Express special, you knew that set was as much like the actual train car that Christie traveled in as physically possible. (Including the little candle holders that look like they're at just the right height to set your head on fire as you walk past.)
