I think it's more like the new adventures of Sydney Greenstreet. He goes out of the house more times in 8 episodes than Wolfe did probably in all the books. At one point I could swear he said something about having a can of beer. The stories could have been written for anybody, really; Johnny Dollar, Michael Shayne, Mr. & Mrs. North...they aren't bad--they just don't have much to do with Nero Wolfe as Stout wrote him.
