2.0 out of 5 stars Victim At Sixty, 17 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Benson at Sixty (Paperback)
Being almost in the same age group as Benson, being Homosexual and being brought up in a strict Catholic household, I could instantly identify with the first three excellent 'Benson' books by Michael Carson:

'Sucking Sherbet Lemons'...
'Stripping Penguins Bare'...
'Yanking Up The Yoyo'...

I couldn't wait to read the next instalment of Benson's life:

'Benson at Sixty'.

'Benson' is now back living around the corner from where he grew up, in New Brighton across the Mersey from Liverpool.
He is a recovering alcoholic, a lifeguard on the local beach and is about to enter into a Civil Partnership to Rob - a motorbike test examiner.

All this sounds like an interesting wrap-up of Benson's life.
I just had to find out what life had thrown at him from leaving New York in his early twenties ('Yanking Up The Yoyo') to now, when he is about to turn sixty.

To be perfectly honest, I wish I hadn't bothered.
It was a complete let-down.

This book is like no other 'Benson' book; it goes on and on and on, about nothing in particular and never actually getting anywhere.
In fact, it was so boring; I struggled to pick it up off the table whenever I had the time to read.
I only continued to read - and finish - in the hope Benson would snap out of it and become interesting again.

Gone is the nervous, but risk taking, adventurous Benson.
Now Benson (although New Brighton is directly across the Mersey from Liverpool) has become the typical Liverpool Victim, where nothing is ever his fault and everyone else is to blame.

If you have read the first three 'Benson' books, leave it at that and imagine how his future turned out yourself.
Don't bother with this book, you will only be disappointed.

A very sad end, to a marvelous beginning !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Golden Girls (DVD), 12 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent 1980's - 1990's American comedy, for both old and young alike.
With one liners aplenty.
Follow the lives of the vicious Sophia Petrillo, sarcastic Dorothy Zbornak, nice but dim Rose Nylund and permissvely vain Blanche Devereaux.
You'll be laughing 'til your sides are aching !!!

A really lovely aftershave.

This review is from: The Sum Of Us [DVD] (DVD)
A truly enjoyable gay and straight movie.
A straight Father openly accepting his gay son and both enjoying their lives together.
Anyone who has just "come out", or has a brother or sister who has just "come out", should watch this film.

Good old fashioned, laugh out loud, comedy.
Hylda Baker never fails to make me laugh, with her endless malaprops.

Excellent British comedy !!!
I had forgotten how wonderful this comedy was.
Real laugh out loud, British postcard, seaside holiday humour, at its best.
No wonder we never missed an episode when it was shown !!!
