Trivia

The sets for Wolfe's brownstone residence were quite true to the descriptions in Rex Stout's novels with one notable exception. In the novels Wolfe's office was furnished with a single red leather visitor's chair before Wolfe's desk, among several other chairs. Occupancy of the red leather chair was often a point of contention among visitors. In this series, there are two red fabric covered chairs facing Wolfe's desk. See more »

not Nero
18 June 2019 | by pchristleSee all my reviews

This is a competent, if mediocre, detective show, but it is not Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe. The 2001 A&E series with Maury Chaykin and Timothy Hutton came closer to the spirit of the novels, although ultimately failing. I have read all of the Nero Wolfe novels and stories at least twice and am on my third go 'round. As a huge Wolfe fan, I am happy to view and even purchase all the cinematic Wolfe attempts, just because. But if anyone is looking for the true Nero Wolfe on film, he hasn't appeared yet.
