    Wonder which movies these are going to be? The Poirot releases have always been difficult in the US, poor quality, edited minutes, wrong order or incomplete series. I am curious to see which movies this set will be.
    I had read there will be more (new) Poirot movies later this year, David Suchet would like to finish making all the Poirot stories.

    It should be:

    The Clocks

    Three Act Tragedy

    Halloween Party
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    None of those are out yet, and they all aired before Orient Express overseas.

    obriensg1 is correct. this set has The Clocks, Three Act Tragedy, and Hallowe'en Party.

    the Poirot Set 6 set comes in a slide out box (similar to the Resident Evil or Starship Troopers trilogy), with each case displaying the large Poirot set 6 banner atop all three of them. can confirm 1080p video, linear pcm 2.0 audio on 3 discs. it looks quite attractive, and very similar to the 4 disc Marple set. The fine folks at Acorn fired me over a copy today, and at first glance (nope, not pulling a mister hunt on this one), it appears to be a small step up in quality from the Murder on the Orient Express release.
    Tumbleweeds.

    Tumbleweeds everywhere.

    Basically this is the most recent series - the other episode that has already come out on Blu-ray is Murder on the Orient Express this was put out by Acorn Media in time for last Xmas. Unfortunately it is Region A locked and I've seen no planned Blu-ray releases for Poirot in the UK.

    Now you tell me. I recently bought the Region 2 DVD version of this season. It's a Dutch product and is referred to as Season 12 and includes Murder on the Orient Express along with the aforementioned other three films. I already had the mega Poirot Region 2 set from the UK that included all but season 12, and the Blu-ray of Murder on the Orient Express. I had despaired of this season ever coming out in the USA on DVD or Blu, so I got the DVD set for around $25. I doubt I will upgrade to the Blu-ray set as they really look quite good upconverted (Unless there is a good deal on the Blu-ray set somewhere).

    As to whether they make any more Poirots, I have also read that Suchet wants to finish the few 4 or 5 remaining books; but that ITV thinks they don't have the budget for it; so nothing is officially "in the works" for more Poirot. One of the books-The Labors of Hercules- is a collection of mysteries that would essentially be like a season of short stories. I would not be surprised to see them at least film the last Poirot novel-Curtain; but I'd be surprised if they do more.

    Just saw Three Act Tragedy on PBS a few days ago and the editing was awful. Did not help that the story uses a murder mysery plot device that made predicting who did it easy.

    I finally saw Orient Express a while back and I was really impressed. Suchet plays Poirot a lot more subtle in it then in other Poirot shows I saw him in.

    HD PQ in both was pretty good but not outstanding.
