Rooster Teeth - Ten Little Roosters
Rooster Teeth took a break from video games to create this murder mystery web series, playing on the "Ten Little Indians" poem featured in And Then There Was None with Ten Little Roosters. Each week a different character was killed off and fans had to guess the killer’s identity. No spoilers here!

Boy Meets World – And Then There Was Shawn
Yes, even the loveable Boy Meets World did a ridiculously scary Agatha Christie tribute. In this episode, the gang finds themselves locked inside the school with a murderer on the loose. One by one their friends meet gruesome ends. (RIP Mr. Feeny) Relax, it was all just a dream. Or was it…?

Family Guy – And Then There Were Fewer
The most faithful adaptation on this list has to go to Family Guy. Set in a stately mansion on a remote island, the Griffins must escape a killer on the loose. Sound familiar? Of course, it wouldn’t be Family Guy without shenanigans ensuing and pop culture jokes made. We’re sure Christie would have approved.

Doctor Who – The Unicorn and the Wasp
Speaking of Agatha Christie, did you know she made an appearance on Doctor Who? When the Doctor crashes a dinner party, its up to him and Christie to solve a mysterious string of murders. An extraterrestrial is the culprit, but which of the guests is not who they appear?

Supernatural – And Then There Were None
Did someone say murder mystery?! The Winchester brothers are on the case! When the killer turns out to be a monster—gasp!—the brothers use their butt-kicking monster-hunting skills to save the day. We’re not sure if this is what Christie had in mind when it comes to solving a mystery, but Supernatural does it with style.
