4.0 out of 5 stars Superb nostalgia!, 9 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For anyone that remembers this series from Friday nights in the 80s, this is a real nostalgic treat as not only are there some really great performances on these two discs, it also captures the feel of the show.
There are some interesting anecdotes within the extras from the production team and a visit to the studios as they are today.
If you enjoyed this show at the time or have a penchant for music of the early to mid-eighties then you will find this very enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great series!, 9 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great scripts and fine actors make this anthology series very watchable. As with anything of this nature, it's going to be hit and miss but this first series has at least four classics! The humour is subtle and character based which may seem dated to a younger audience but for those who remember this era or if you like good quality, gentle, British drama then there's a lot here to enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars An honest autobiography for once!, 9 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: As I Am (Paperback)
Francoise writes with total honesty and from the heart, which is rare in this age of glossed-over autobiographys from people who have just spent five minutes in the limelight. This is the story of of someone who has lived a life, been through some extreme up an extreme downs and has come out of it all a positive, wonderful person.
The book is written in an engaging way, as if you are in conversation with Francoise herself. There are some heartbreaking moments in the book as well as happier times, lesser people would have crumbled under the things that Francoise has been through! What comes out of it is an incredibly talented survivor with plenty of tales to tell. The pure honesty within this book is refreshing to read.

I recommend this completely.

1.0 out of 5 stars Trauma for budgies!, 8 May 2012
This review is from: Bird Toy Penguin On Wheels (Toy)
My budgie has one of these and hates it. With a passion.
The sheer fear on his face as this was introduced into his cage was enough to reduce you to tears.
I'm unsure as to what is so awful about it but he does not like it one bit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hand built by monkeys... lovely piece., 30 April 2012
The ulysee nardin Zeitmesser mit circus minite repeater is an amazing piece of technology. Although the parts are man-made, the watch istelf is assembled by a highly-trained team of monkeys wearing fez hats and is the only watch in the world to have been so.
The price here is far cheaper than you would find in your local Argos, in fact I bought two, one for each wrist.

What is not mentioned in the description, is the 'time travel' option. My family and I have had so much fun over the last month, whether it's frolicking with dinosaurs, getting drunk at the Last Supper, jumping off the Titanic or witnessing Susan Boyle's first appearance again on Britian's Got Talent, the possibilities are endless.

The strap is made from a geniuine crocodile scotum and the watch talks to you with a voice not disimilar to loveable cockney, Arthur Mullard.

Wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gem of a book., 20 Mar. 2012
This review is from: Geek Tragedy (Kindle Edition)
This book is a real treat for those who enjoy poetry with a dash of realism and some great humour. The subjects covered are those that most people can relate to: giving up smoking, unemployment and Star Wars obsession.
David's poems can be poignant and touching and the next moment make you laugh out loud. There is a wry sense of humour running throughout the book and it reflects someone who has dealt with life's problems and irritations but still comes out of it smiling and laughing at the absurdity of being human in the 21st century.

The book is a great read and one that you will want to go back to and re-read. Many times. Not since John Cooper Clarke has Britain boasted of a contemporary poet whose work will resonate with the populace, but now we've found one.

If David Rudd Mitchell doesn't become the poet laureate, he can proudly be a spokesman for a generation of forty-somethings who have seen life in it's warts and all gory glory but are still laughing, and love Star Wars and James Bond.

Download this fabulous book, I guarantee you'll find much within you will enjoy. Even if you're not a poetry fan, I think you'll love this....

5.0 out of 5 stars The best sitcom ever!, 13 Mar. 2012
Great scripts, perfectly cast, superb performances from all involved, this show was hilarious when it was broadcast all those years ago and is still just as funny.

Comedy that's aim is to make you smile (rather than much of today's which consists of vulgarities or political points being made) and put a smile on your face it does! Time and time again.

This review is from: Baraka - Ron Fricke [DVD] (DVD)
Some beautiful, haunting and powerful images in this film which will delight fans of films such as Koyaaniaquatsi. The cinematography, as you would expect, is superb as is the soundtrack and people/places filmed. A unique viewing experience.

A superbly filmed documentary which looks stunning in 3D. There are some real jump out of the screen moments and at many points it appears that fish are swimming around your living room!
Great quality picture and realistic, impressive 3D effects.
