Pictures are fine but the font for the numbers is much too small so it isn't easy to read from across room

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern Period Drama, 7 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Breathless [DVD] (DVD)
I can't wait to get hold of this on DVD. During its TV run it was compulsory viewing for me. The scripts are sharp the plot line is good and the pace doesn't flag. It isn't a thriller as such but there's enough going on to keep you guessing and wanting to know more. There are some really strong dramatic performances throughout the series and the costumes and the sets are delightful. It is a very superior drama up there with the best of the best. I would not be surprised if it didn't garner a few awards in various categories. Each of the major characters has a guilty secret or two and their interplay is both entertaining and revealing about attitudes to women and family life in the 60's. There is some real grit to this drama, it's far from slushy or sentimental. The leading man is flawed to say the least but all the major characters are vulnerable and needy in their own way and all the more interesting for it. This is destined to be TV gold and a modern classic.

1.0 out of 5 stars RIP OFF RUBBISH, 20 Feb. 2011
This review is from: One Hit Wonders (Audio CD)
Amazon shouldn't be allowed to sell stuff like this without clearly labelling it as Re Recordings - and therefore not original in the sense that it isn't the original hit production but a rerecording aka karaoke or tribute band. Often the singer is redoing this long after their voice has passed its best and shacked up with a group of session players for a 'Something like' version. No Way is this worth what you are asked to pay.

1.0 out of 5 stars RIP OFF RUBBISH, 1 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Hits Of The 60's (Audio CD)
No where in the description or on the cover of the CD are you informed that this is not the real deal - the original production of the songs- but in fact a bunch of lacklustre rerecordings by over the hill singers and slack backing musicians. This is a rip off and as such must constitute a trading standards offence because the consumer is being wilfully misled. This rubbish is being sold as the real original output where in fact it is a rehash. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE.My copy is going back to the seller or my credit card company is being given the bill.I'm not putting up with this.
