The "4:50 from Paddington" episode is by far the best of those contained in this set. The other three episodes didn't hold my interest. Mediocre audio quality and the actor's British accents combine with a lack of closed captioning to make it difficult to hear exactly what is being said. This is an unnecessary frustration for the viewer watching Agatha Christie mystery stories, in which the plots tend to be somewhat contorted and the clues subtle to almost completely lacking. "4:50 from Paddington" reservedly recommended, the others, not.
