An alternative viewpoint, 3 October 2009
Author: jonfrum2000 from United States

This episode of Poirot seems to be very popular with reviewers here. I have to add a negative voice. And voice is the problem, as another commenter has already pointed out. If it was just the American accent that was done poorly, I would understand. I'm sure that British viewers wince when Americans scramble the King's English in all its variations. The problem for me is one that is common to many British productions. The American accent isn't the only problem - it's the American portrayal. The accent is straight out of Miss Kitty from the Saloon in a Hollywood Western, or perhaps the latest episode of Dallas, and the voice - and the character - is always loud, if not buffoonish. If Americans portrayed every upper class Brit as a lisping homosexual, perhaps the problem would be clear to our English friends. Inspector Frost's Americans and no different form those of Poirot - I fear that the problem lies more in the class or person who goes into writing and drama in the UK than in the original authors. In this case, I simply couldn't watch the episode.
