Thoroughly enjoying Covert Affairs, good to see that not only the boys get all the action. Having said that why is Season 3 almost double the price. Much as I enjoyed first two series its way to expensive this time around when you consider the extra charges of VAT and P+P will price it out of existence. Sorry, I'll wait for a big Price drop before ordering No3.

As with Season 3, the release for this season will be in 2 parts, 4.0 and probably 4.5, with 9 episodes on this release with 11 on the next, why they've started releasing them this way is beyond me, the only reason that I can think of is due to the extra money they'll get for doing it this way.

Personally I've a mind to buy seasons 1 and 2 and be done with it, as and when or if they ever get around to releasing a complete season 3 and complete season 4 then I'll pick those up then, buying them as half seasons is a waste of packaging, time, money and the environment, if you want to waste all of these then buy this boxset.

'Hercules: The Legendary Journeys' is a TV-series that is nowadays often frowned upon or criticised for its clunky SFX, cheesy dialogue and general camp. But I can't help but love it, and I think I'm one of the few fans who prefers this series over its massively more popular spin-off, 'Xena: Warrior Princess', any day. So as soon as I got my hands on a DVD-player that could play Region 1, I also got my hands on this box set, which is vastly superior to its Region 2 counterparts in many ways.

The 5 TV-movies mark the beginning of our hero's journey and also introduce us to the main characters, including Hercules' best friend and partner, Iolaus, his mother, Alcmene, his (future) wife Deianeira and, of course, his almighty father Zeus.

I especially like the very first movie, "Hercules and the Amazon Women", in which we get our first glimpse of the wonderful lifelong friendship between Hercules and Iolaus, which for me has always been the heart of the series more than anything else.

Although the movies can get away with more in terms of blood, gore and swearwords, the 45-minute episodes feel generally darker, which has a lot to do with the fact that the season opens with the fiery death of Hercules' young family by the hands of his evil stepmother Hera, and his subsequent rage at the gods who let this happen to him.

It continues on a slightly lighter note, and these episodes are more family-friendly, tackling issues such as racism, bullying, gangs and arrogance. Towards the end of the season, with darker episodes such as 'Gladiator' and 'The Gauntlet', you might want to send the younger children to bed, though.

Up to season 5 House was known as focusing a lot on the comical witticisms of House as he insulted his colleagues and his boss. This particular season takes a more serious turn, and although there does exist the comedy that it's famous for, there is a more serious aura around the entire season and its characters as all is not well in the land of Dr. Gregory House. For a medical drama, House is pretty special as it retains a very formulaic style of storytelling and wholly stays away from soap opera dramatics; instead replacing them with casual love stories, complex medical cases and an even more complex main star.

Just when we think we know House, the show takes another massive turn and shows us a completely different side to him that we never thought existed. Season 5 seeks on exposing a new emotional side to House. At the end of season 4 we saw the end to Wilsons girlfriend, Amber and what we are lead to believe to be the friendship of House and Wilson. Season 5 opens with our worst fears, Wilson quits and tells House that they can no longer be friends and in order for Wilson to be truly happy, he must have House out of his life.

In comes a private investigator hired by House to spy on Wilson in his new life and also his team. The split doesn't last for long and House & Wilson end up back to their old tricks of childish friendship antics. Chase & Cameron gain a more prominent role in this season as their relationship is explored in more detail as Cameron struggles with the possibility of a permanent relationship as she still can't let go of the memories of her husband who died a few years prior to their relationship.

Was looking for this WONDERFUL series on DVD for a while & now it's here! FORGET that these episodes are 50+ YEARS OLD and revel in TV of the highest order that will appeal to buyers of other intelligent sci-fi shows like the TWILIGHT ZONE (60s & 1985 series) and JOHNNY STACCATO (not on DVD officially anywhere, why not??). If you think pre 1965 B&W shows are flat & boring you're mistaken!

(Updated Apr 08) This first series has some great episodes, all introduced by cheeky comments by Mr H himself. Many future name guest stars inc John Cassavettes (Johnny Staccato) and Charles Bronson. Some of the episodes later in the set deviate from the mystery & suspense style & are a little disappointing, a few stories do not tie up very well leaving you stranded. Also 2 actors appear as different characters in different episodes very close to their first appearance, making credibility a little stretched if you watch one a day as I did! Some scenarios may initially look a bit dull to the modern viewer, but with any quality old show, it doesn't take long to see it for the quality it is!

Picture quality is fine for the age. The sound can be a bit poor due to the fact nowadays everything must be silent background with no hiss. This heavy-handed restoration mars mainly the intros though a few shows have poor distorted sound, but the best there is left. Most viewers with small TV speakers wouldn't notice, those of us with 15" speakers hear everything!

Will be buying all the series as they are released one per year. It'll take a long time: there are 7 series of the shorter format, then 3 seasons of the longer "Alfred Hitchcock Hour".
