Long DescriptionWhile most murderers try to hide from detectives, the killer in The ABC Murders sends a series of letters to alert the famous Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot when and where the murders will be committed. Based on one of Agatha Christie's most ingenious plots, the film contains enough false clues to distract both detective and viewer from the murderer's true identity. As Poirot, David Suchet does not so much play the dapper detective as he inhabits him--his accent, his meticulous manners, and the scowl of concentration as his "little gray cells" solve the puzzle are all immediately familiar to readers of Christie's books. In this feature-length adventure, he is aided and abetted by his perennial sidekick, Captain Hastings (Hugh Fraser), and Chief Inspector Japp (Philip Jackson). Though Christie's novels spanned several decades, the PBS Mystery! series has set all of its episodes in the 1930s; the art deco architecture and elegant costumes lend an air of sophistication that makes watching these videos a respectable guilty pleasure.

DVD extras include biographies of David Suchet and Agatha Christie, challenging Poirot trivia questions, a filmography of all the Poirot Mystery! episodes, and a link to the official Agatha Christie Web site. --Larisa Lomacky Moore

For a couple months, we have been working on a major revamp of the database. All the existing data will be saved of course but many new data elements will be created.

People have been asking for the ability to track nutritional information, ingredients and other data items related to various products.

To this point, we have not been able to track that information because of a limit imposed by the database layout. Adding these new fields would be very hard.

We have finally gotten the database into the correct shape for the new fields and many many more in the future. We will be able to track just about any type of data item for any given product type.

It may be a few more months before the input screens catch up to the database changes. We want the user interface to be smooth and easy to use. Using feedback we have already received about the current site we will be making changes to the input process.

We also need to take into account the existing applications that are using the existing data feed and we will also need to create a new updated data feed for people moving forward.

In short, big changes are coming now that the database has been revamped but all the existing functions will continue to work without interuption.
