Season 7, Episode 2 (originally released on March 11, 2023)

Michael and Nick are back with more murder fun on the newest episode of SLPS where the duo discusses Sidney Lumet’s star-studded Agatha Christie whodunit adaptation — MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS.

On this episode, we discuss why some whodunits work better than others, how to handle an “uninteresting” character, and compare the Lumet version to the 2017 Kenneth Branagh adaptation.
