Let's be an episode of "Poirot"

I'm the murderer making a self-incriminating confession before all the other suspects, prompted simply by Poirot figuring out how I did it, even though he does not have a shred of actual evidence that could prove I did it. But it's such a relief to be unburdened at last!

I'm mincing. And figure wagging, sighing, flower in buttonhole gayness. But I'm not gay, just Belgian.

You're also every episode of "Murder, She Wrote." Just replace Poirot with Jessica Fletcher.

I'm another recent binge-watcher and I'm fascinated how the stories have been either edited-down or stretched-out to fit the one-hour or two-hour time slot.

I'm 'binge-watching' because my local TV channel has been 'binge-screening' them. And I get thoroughly confused when that channel shows Christie's characters in the 1980s version one week and the same characters acting out the same plot in the later version in the following week.

I am the lack of lawyers present at these final reveals. You know, all these suspects should've lawyered up by now (unless they are trapped in a train or boat for some reason). But instead they just humor that little fey and theatrical Belgian and go into these things without legal council. Is it any wonder that Poirot is toying with them and playing his petty little mind games to prolong their torture? They have only themselves to blame.

by Anonymousreply 7910/17/2020

I'm the literary snob who says these characters are utterly one-dimensional and completely lacking one iota of psychological consistency.

They are Mr A, Mr B, Mrs C, Mrs D, Miss E and F etcetera being pushed through some contortions of Step 1, step 2, step 3 etcetera.
