Pros –

Cons –

 

1) Hercule Poirot will remain the most annoying character ever created in English literature and Albert Finney can’t do anything to fix it.

Foscarelli: Hey, what are you reading, Mister Beddoes?
Beddoes: I am reading “Love’s Captive,” by Mrs. Arabella Richardson.
Foscarelli: Is it about sex?
Beddoes: No, it’s about 10:30, Mister Foscarelli.
