Really excited that this has finally aired as it is the first official Chinese language adaptation of Agatha Christie works. Very curious to see how these are adapted, particularly since the main characters are nothing like Poirot by any stretch of imagination. Read from MyDramaList that it will apparently be an adaptation of 8 stories - "Murder on the Orient Express", "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd", "The Four Suspects: A Miss Marple Short Story", "One, Two Buckle My Shoe", "The Kidnapped Prime Minister", "Five Little Pigs", "Three Act Tragedy" and "Curtain". Definitely looking forward to trying to identify which case is adapted. A little concerned about "Curtain" though since it will potentially be a tragic ending, but we shall see.

@liddi My BFF said that since she's aware of some of the stories it's adapted from, she felt parts were a bit draggy (mainly in regards to Murder on the Orient Express). Otherwise, she's said it hasn't been too bad.
