    Nero Wolfe Gets an AAA+ rating. The Best!

    I love this series. I wish A&E would do some more.

    Exceptional series

    The Nero Wolfe series was exceptionally well done from production quality to the storyline of each episode in the series. I especially enjoy the repertory casting, which can only work because the actors themselves are superb. Hutton and Chaykin play their respective roles to perfection, and Hutton's talent behind the camera is also evident. I highly recommend this series. I have played and replayed each of the episodes several times since making this purchase. The biggest disappointment is that there were no more episodes made. I would also have preferred that the DVD's did not separate so many of the two part episodes into two separate DVD titles. Regardless, A&E should bring this series back for another run, it was one of their best original series.

    Nero Wolfe - Great Books, Great Series

    Timothy Hutton and Maury Chaykin bring Stout's Nero Wolfe to life in this series. The acting, directing, and settings are superb, along with the ensemble of actors who, for the most part, take different roles in each episode. I especially like the episodes which include Kari Matchett. A great series. Highly recommended.

    Stay-at-Home Detecting

    Loved this series when it was on tv, and am so delighted that I can see it again and again through these videos. Not only is Wolfe a stay-at-home detective, but the viewers get to do the same detecting, since we see/hear all the clues that Archie tells Wolfe about. It's a challenge to see if you can figure it out before Wolfe lays it all out for you. Genius at work on the screen and in front of the screen. The acting ensemble is excellent. Rex Stout (author of the novels) is one of the all-time best mystery writers.

    Dont miss this one

    The Nero Wolfe series was one of the best productions ever offered on A&E. It is well acted and a very entertaining series. Each one is worth watching over and over again.

    perfect mix of style and substance

    I absolutely recommend these DVDs. The slightly stylized effect of the repertory cast actually catches the flavor of the effect that Stout achieved by moving the stories along in time (Depression, WWII, the Fifties, Civil Rights...) while leaving the characters the same age the whole time. Timothy Hutton was born to play Archie.

    This is one of the best series of all time. Nero Wolfe is a classy, elegant "whodunit" that will make anyone who likes these kind of shows fall in love with it.
