Human Universe [DVD]
Human Universe [DVD]

1.0 out of 5 stars Brian Cox shows us his holiday snaps, 23 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Human Universe [DVD] (DVD)
The BBC, which brought us 'Civilisation' and 'The Ascent of Man' now brings us a science series for our dumbed down age.

Endless shots of picturesque, exotic locations and people, which have the most tenuous links to the subject matter being discussed.

Added to that still more endless shots of Brian Cox, either trying to look like he's having profound thoughts, as he strides in slow-motion through said exotic locations, or grinning inanely like Alfred E Neuman (the likeness is uncanny) as he enjoys a jolly jaunt in an Indian taxi or whatever.

This series is 99% filler and the remainder is a rehash of previous efforts. I can imagine that the script was written in a day or two.

Lazy and boring.

We deserve better for our licence fee.

1.0 out of 5 stars How about the double standard that men are given longer ..., 26 Aug. 2014
How about the double standard that men are given longer sentences than women, for the same crime?

Or how about the fact that many men have to pay child support, even when they can prove that they are not the child's biological father?

It puts the slut vs. stud (or should that be rat) 'double standard' into perspective doesn't it?

1.0 out of 5 stars Will somebody change Laura's diaper?, 28 April 2014
This review is from: Everyday Sexism (Hardcover)
Western women today are just about the most privileged and pampered group in the history of humanity, but that doesn't stop Laura Bates wailing like an incontinent toddler about how tough she and her sisters have it.

Seriously Laura , is this where 50 years of feminism has brought you and British women?

Time for you and the other infantilised whiners to grow up!

1.0 out of 5 stars Cynical Money making Exercise, 29 Nov. 2013
After inflicting the execrable Prometheus on the viewing public, they now add insult to injury with this.

I presume that the use of the word 'Evolution' in the title is meant to be ironic.

The head didn't bobble so lost some of the comic effect I was looking for. I was after something like the one that appeared on Richard Dawkins' video

4.0 out of 5 stars Linguatec Personal Translator, 18 Jun. 2013

Easy to use intuitive interface and the speech programme was not bad if a little robotic.
It came with a manual in German only but the customer service was very prompt in sending a pdf of the English version.

Overall good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Humour as an instrument of truth, 27 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Religulous [DVD] (DVD)
I really don't have anything to add to the excellent, well written reviews by Mssrs Reed, McFarlane and others, except 5 stars.

This is one of my favourite DVDs, it's very funny, informative and ultimately unsettling.

Yes as another reviewer has said, Bill Maher is preaching to the choir but he's also making a call for the choir to get off their collective butts and challenge religious wingnuts, who have caused and are causing immense harm in the world.

He also gives some ammunition to do it with.

Maybe not as rigorous as Richard Dawkins (The God Delusion), Christoper Hitchins (God is not Great) or Sam Harris (The End of Faith, Letter to a Christian Nation)............but a lot funnier.
