This review is from: Broadchurch [DVD] (DVD)
Boring and much too slow - it would have been fine as a two one-hour episodes. Gave up by episode 5 and decided not to buy series 2

This review is from: Silent Witness - Series 17 (DVD)
Ordereed this DVD and had to return it to the seller in the Netherlands. Can't understand why it has not been issued in the UK and having followed the series for many years hoped to enjoy it. The DVD does not have an English soundtrack (I am hard of hearing) and the sound quality is poor. Moreover, the dialog stuttered in places, the image froze every few minutes and this suggests poor quality DVD production.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretentious and incomprehensible, 14 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Parade's End [DVD] (DVD)
Bought it recently based on other viewers' comments and with great expectations. Watched Episode 1 and and decidedly not impressed.
The whole thing left us baffled and after an hour of watching I no longer knew who's who or what the plot is all about.
Sure, the filming is very good, the actors competent, the costumes accurate as one would expect from a production of this kind. No wonder it is on sale...

4.0 out of 5 stars Music too loud, spoils the enjoyment, 26 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Superbly done down to the smallest detail. Good plots, great acting, amazing sets. There is a however... somebody forgot the music is meant to be in the background - it is so loud in parts that it drowns the dialog.

3.0 out of 5 stars sound premise - caricature characters, 22 Oct. 2008
This review is from: The Edge of Madness (Paperback)
Dobbs's past books have deep insights into the political world and current affairs. The premise of a cyberwar is plausible and topical and the book starts brilliantly. Then as various characters are being introduced they become caricatures - the one good guy is a (british) hero could can do no wrong, everyone else is an untrusworthy politician (british), uncouth and a drunk (russian) and suppremely arrogant (american) and this detracts from what is essentially a good read.

3.0 out of 5 stars frustrating access to the episodes, 30 Jun. 2007
For those of us who are not geeks fascinated by clever technology the absence of any guidance on how to access the contents of the discs or finding out what these contents are, the packaging is deeply frustrating. The information not provided with the discs is also a disappointmentm however good the material is.
