5.0 out of 5 stars Laid-back humor, 9 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this item by Jonathan Ames extremely appealing with its laid-back humor, prompting me to order season 2 and the books by Jonathan Ames

5.0 out of 5 stars true-to-life rendition of the Peninsular wars, 10 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This series is a splendid rendition of the battles between Napoleon and Wellington in the Iberian peninsula with derring-do by Sean Bean. It has superb production values and first class directiion. The only goofs I think I found was British army men giving the order "Forward March" which is American, instead of "Quick March, and "Left face" instead of the British "Left turn", but I suspect that only ex-military man like me would notice, or care!

2.0 out of 5 stars No subtitles, 8 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm afraid we have been spoilt by DVDs with subtitles so that when we come across something like The Practice with actors who mumble their lines we get a feeling of annoyance that removes any posiive appreciation of the DVD in question. I would suggest that Amazon might see its way to persuading the producers of subtitle-less DVDS to add subtitles to them before putting them on the market and to clearly indicate this when offering the product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Took me back to my youth, 8 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Sound of the Big Bands took me back to my youth when I would listen to performers like Tommy Dorsey, Glen Miller, and others on 78 rpm records or the BBC World Service on short wave radio.
It is a remarkable collection of old favourites as well as some unknowns that are nevertheless well worth listening to.
Thank you, Amazon!

After completing the first part with the Coliseum it takes you to the Pyramids and then back to the Coliseum. I expect to resolve the problem although I really don't know how.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Without English subtitles I found it hard to follow the dialogues by the actors who need more elocution training. Sorry!
