In Agatha Christie's Criminal Games: The '70s, the newest French TV adaptation of her novels, collars are wide, sunglasses are huge, and flares are everywhere. Captain Annie Gréco (Emilie Gavois-Kahn, Spiral, Swimming Pool) is the Lille police department's first female captain, and the chauvinism is ever present even as she runs circles around her hapless male underlings. She's partnered with the unlikely Max Beretta (Arthur Dupont, Arsène Lupin), who was marooned in the archives after some hothead behavior following a perceived slight by a colleague. He's always a hair-trigger away from throwing a punch (or worse), but he's observant and motivated. Rose Bellacour (Chloé Chaudoye, Murder in Ramatuelle) rounds out the mismatched trio as a gifted amateur psychologist. Her outfits may scream peak '70s fashion, but her mind is built for a more modern age. The '70s are arguably the fourth major character in the series, with richly decorated sets in tones of orange and brown, vintage cars and a distinctly psychedelic feel accompanying each mystery. Episodes in this set include: Endless Night, The Darkroom, The Hollow, When the Mice Play, Murder On Stage, Til Death Do Us Part, Murders of the Third Kind, With the Snap of a Finger, Fatal Karma, Boarding School Murders.
