Just like eating at McDonalds you know exactly what you'll get with Nero Wolfe. Unlike McDonalds the effect is satisfying.

Having watched the A&E version of this several times it was nice to read the original. There are some intelligent changes - dropping Mr Fomos from the TV show, he really is padding. But I think the script writers missed an important part of the conversation between Jaffe and Goodwin when they first meet - no more detail as it's a spoiler.
