1.0 out of 5 stars Failed from the start, 7 Sept. 2013
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First off the discs failed to work so I ended up downloading from Steam; once in the game I found it buggy and have not yet managed to finish a single game either I get bored or it crashes.
Looks like I will be back playing Empire by the end of the week and try it in a month or two when they have fixed the issues.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cookie Cutter Sci fi, 26 July 2013
Watched all the series, it does not hit the mark on every level; it reminds me of Tera Nova with the same poorly written scripts, this is a shame as the cast seems pretty good and some elements better presented would have made for a better show. If it lives to a second series, lets hope the building blocks in place make it better.

But its a shame as ever that trash like this is made when Firefly is still off the air....! Browncoat for life.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shame you can not rate as zero stars, 13 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ok so I watched the film over the weekend and it surprised me by being even worse than the book, my wife and daughters had been going on about seeing this film as we missed it at the cinema; and everyone agreed it was bland.
Not sure how it gets five stars from anyone all I can assume is you have been locked in a box for 20 years and have never seen a film.
Avoid it (and the books are just as bad).


Storm Front: The Dresden Files Book One: 1
Storm Front: The Dresden Files Book One: 1
by Jim Butcher
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.74

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Start, 20 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After looking for a few new writers I purchased 3 books, and started reading them, this one odly enough last - yet its the first I have finished and with that I went and ordered the rest of the series.
It does have a wizard in it, chicago's one and only Mr Harry Dresdan. I like these books as it does feel like they are not taking themselves to seriously but with enough details and ideas to make a refreshing change.
Lets hope the next ones are just as good.

2.0 out of 5 stars Seen this before, 20 Mar. 2013
So this one has a cop with total recall of memory, other than that its your standard show, and for most of it felt like the original Bones series. Few twists and turns and throw in an old flame and WOW new show...
If you look at alot of the shows coming from over the water they all are going for the same kind of feel to these things, does any crime in the states get solved by "normal" people....
It had been cancelled but looks like they are going for a season 2, maybe they ran out of ideas for a new "quirk".

4.0 out of 5 stars Stay on target, 14 Mar. 2013
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Finally got my hands on a copy of this game the other day, and got straight down to a game, easy to pick up and play.
Thing I have found though is the add ons are hard to come buy with several cancelled orders due to lack of stock, no stock or no order recieved.

Price: £11.40

2.0 out of 5 stars One Skull to many, 12 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Bones - Season 7 [DVD] (DVD)
Watched this from Season one and have loved the show, the interactions of the main characters has really made something worth watching. Then from out of the blue came this season... It felt clunky, miss placed without the previous shows good humour and clever quips.
Lets hope they get back on track for the next season.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am the Law, 12 Mar. 2013
Watched it, loved it....

After Dredds last outing it was good to see the helmet staying on, the story although not the most complex is a fitting start.

Lets hope they make another with a bigger budget!

2.0 out of 5 stars Standard Cop show with a few twists, 12 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Continuum - Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Unlike most people on this one I found this show boils down to your standard cop show with a time travel twist, this fits in with the main stream TV shows being produced as cop shows seem to be a sure thing and go on forever.
It does have great potential and some of the underline storytelling could turn this into a real gem of a show, I will be watching Season 2 to see if it goes standard cop show or onto something better.
