2.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money., 18 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Minimal padding leads to discomfort when lifting free weights. There is no wrist support either. There are cheaper gloves that are better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Series, 11 May 2012
I've been watching since series 1 and it just gets better and better. Some genuinely dark storylines that are very taut with great cliffhangers. Some of the performances are beautifully alive and emotional as well.

1.0 out of 5 stars Yup, still rubbish, 2 Sep 2011
Following on from series 5-the scripts are still smug, clever-clever and dull-like a spoilt 10 year old who is pleased with itself. Matt Smith is still a rubbish actor- no surprise there. Moffatt is fast becoming another JNT.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unbearably pleased with itself, 2 Sep 2011
Appalling dialogue throughout-so many "zingers" I felt sick. I am now convinced that the trademark fast pacing of the new series is an attempt to stop people noticing how rubbish the content actually is (quite a successful ploy it seems). The weak, self aware, self satisfied scripts are made even worse by Matt Smith who is a rubbish actor-just like the writers and his boss-Moffat, he is all about trying to create an effect with absolutely no truth in his work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than series 1, 23 July 2011
The storylines in this series are darker and all the better for it. Some excellent, stand out performances from new land girl Seline Hizli and Danny Webb as the ubiquitous Tucker. Strong emotional truth in many of the arcs combines with a fantastic big budget look.


Escape from Genopolis
Escape from Genopolis
by Tess Berry-Hart
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars A great book for young people, 13 Mar 2011
This review is from: Escape from Genopolis (Paperback)
The world of this book is dystopian, but cleverly disguised as an idyl. What is brilliant about this story is that while young people are drawn in by great characters and narrative they will be encouraged to question their own society's values.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gothic Greatness, 8 Mar 2011
Another great piece of gothic story telling with superb atmosphere. It doesn't get a 5 star review because some of the special effects are poor and the villain can grate a little in a couple of scenes. On the whole though another horror filled adventure carried by Baker's uncanny ability to be both intense and unfocussed at the same time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Shoddy, 8 Mar 2011
Terrible script, self indulgent acting and even for the time the production values were woeful. Not having a decent budget is one thing, not even trying is quite another.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gothic Masterpiece, 7 Mar 2011
Yes, yes- the sfx are much better thse days, blah, blah, blah. What the series had at this point in its history that it is lacking now is atmosphere. The sense of dread and lurking horror is wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating Exploration, 7 Mar 2011
This review is from: Jews and Sex (Paperback)
This collection of essays is a fascinating exploration of Jewish sexuality. They range from Jewish Erotic Theology right through to the editor's overview of Jewish involvment in contemporary porn. All the essays are articulate and considered and I was particularly absorbed by the insights of a number of the writers into the attitudes to and portrayal of Jewish masculinity.
