Blake's 7 - Series 1 [DVD] [1978]
Blake's 7 - Series 1 [DVD] [1978]
Dvd ~ Gareth Thomas
Price: £18.79

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant bit of nostalgia. A few of todays' shows could learn from this., 27 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What is not to like about this bit of very early eighties sci-fi.
While the sets do wobble and the scripts are a little dated, the cast give it their all and deliver complex stories and themes in a low-tech way.
Why this has not been snapped up and remade is beyond me. Especially when you look at some of the series that are made or cancelled just when they are getting good.

Overall, if you take it for what it is, it's a well made (for its time and budget), well acted (within the script) piece of nostalgia.

5.0 out of 5 stars A bit of my childhood., 16 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blake's 7 - Series 4 [DVD] (DVD)
I thought this would be bad, you know, never go back because its never as good as you remember. But this is the exception to the rule. Yes the special effects are rubbish, and the fight scenes are a little laughable but to be honest, they were in the eighties.
Blummin brilliant.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bruce is King of the try-ers, 16 Jan. 2013

A really interesting read, with effort and dedication key to never quite making it into the big time.
Well worth a read.

3.0 out of 5 stars For what it is, it's fine., 16 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For what it is, it's fine, just don't expect it to get over a bump in the carpet. But then again, for the age range it's aimed at, it's fine.

3.0 out of 5 stars It works, but needs new batteries to work fully, 16 Jan. 2013

This review is from: Elefun (Toy)
The above titles says it all really. Nice toy, just a bit battery consuming. Overall, it does what it says on the tin.


Mind Magic & Mentalism For Dummies
Mind Magic & Mentalism For Dummies
by James L. Clark
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard to say, 20 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
While this book is a good start to understanding mentalism, it is a little missing in places???? It is a good read and does cover the basics, but a lot of the illusions do require a level of skill still a little higher than the title "Dummies" suggests.
Having said that, the author does come across as very passionate an knowledgeable, with an obvious love of what he does.
Altogether a sort of positive review. Good for the author, average for the content.
