About three or so episodes into watching this series, which revolves around the famous Agatha Christie created detective Hercule Poirot, I called my father to discuss the show.  Specifically, I asked him if I was missing something…because I liked it.  The Film Professor completely surprised me by saying that he had already watched Poirot, and that he had thoroughly enjoyed the series.  It is a tad, if you will, slow, almost in a Shakespearean way; as such, you will, or should, come to appreciate its qualities as you have, or should have, come to appreciate Shakespeare.
