5.0 out of 5 stars The funniest show you have never seen..., 24 Nov. 2005
This show used to aired on the Sci-fi channel before some legal issues involving the rights to show the awful, awful films were taken away (sometimes you wonder whether the films deserve to have rights, they are that bad) It was comedy at its finest, 3 characters, shot into space as part of an evil experiment are forced to watch terrible movies to see how long it takes for them to crack. However to ease their pain they crack jokes over the top of the films. What follows are some amazingly funny episodes. On this boxset The Creeping Terror is so funny, the jokes they make are so funny. These are mainly aimed at the "Carpet Monster", due to people actual crawling into its mouth. It really is that bad, and possibly the worst film ever "Sky Divers" with an entire sub plot dedicated to the pursuit of coffee. The show is just simply hilarious, you will be rolling on the floor and the humour varies from toilet to black, to down right rude. One word of warning, there are some references to American people/shows that you might not get. Don't let that put you off and remember how funny it is. I implore you all to buy all of the box sets like me. It only gets better...

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Beautiful, 24 Nov. 2005
This review is from: Is a Real Boy (Audio CD)
It’s not often that you can hear an album and be taken aback by how good it is. It’s not often you hear an album that you find it impossible to explain it to your friends because you just can’t find words that do it justice. And it is not often you hear an album which changes the way you think about music. Say Anything – Is a real boy... fulfils all of these quotas, it raises the bar for all new music. Impossible to define, impossible to turn off, impossible to not be hooked, it will leave you wanting so much more. I had my reservations when my friend introduced me to them by not only saying that most of the songs were about the lead singer’s quest for sex and that he was now recovering in a secure mental institute, but all my fears were dispelled as soon as I listened to the album. Kicking off with the immortal words “And now a song about rebellion” you are thrust into “Belt” a scorching track that will have you screaming the chorus back at your speakers. Songs like “Woe”, with the finest breakdown I have ever heard and “The Futile” will keep you hooked and finishing on the rallying cry of “ADMIT IT!!” is the most fitting end to an album, yes you’ve guessed it, I have ever heard. However the finest track on the album lies in the stunning “Alive in the Glory of Love”. I must admit a song about love and the Holocaust does not seem like the easiest subject matter to tackle but it is done so beautifully that you have to admire Max Bemis’ courage. With a chorus so amazingly simple, but so touching “No, I won’t let them take you...” you will be hard pressed not to fall in love. There are so many memorable moments on this album and it is simply the finest album I have ever heard.
10/10 and then some...

5.0 out of 5 stars TV at its grittiest/greatest, 15 Oct. 2005
What can you say that hasn't been said in the US about the Wire? Shown only on FX on Sky in an 11 o clock slot on a Wednesday evening you would be excused for thinking that this was a show that the producers wanted to slip in without it registering on the radar. How wrong of the producers (if this is case however you will understand why it has to be shown late when you watch it) this has to be television at its finest. Effortlessly weaving characters into plots that seem so unrelated at the start you would be forgiven for thinking nothing could link them together at the start of the series. Dock workers? Murdered Prostitutes? Greeks? Russians? Drug Dealers? You really do have to watch it to realize what I mean. You will think back to an episode in which you thought had a scene of little importance to the plot only for it to become crucial to the series as a whole an episode later. I must mention the stunning performances turned in by all the actors, especially the new ones for this series who have really established them selves. With characters from series 1 brought back together with an amazing plot you can see why this show is the hit it is in America. The on-screen pairing of Dominic West (Detective McNulty) and Wendell Pierce (Detective "Bunk" Moreland) is perfect and these help to add the moments of dark humour to the series. This is a show that must be watched to be believed. I myself am particularly looking forward to the DVD version of this show, so I can watch it with the subtitles on and catch little bits of information I might have missed first time around. A must-buy for anyone...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good..but not spectacular, 12 Feb. 2005
I must admit i got this album on the strength of one song which is not what i usually do but, never the less, i took it home and listened to it. It struck me straight away that the song i had heard, Ohio is for Lovers, was one of the strongest on the album, however some of the other songs paled into insignificance. Despite a good sound, a singer with a good voice and some really good hooks this album is nothing spectacular, however it still regularly spends time in my CD player, this is a good addition to fans of this sort of music yet it will not change your opinion on the genre as it is nothing ground breaking. Still worth buying though.
