Enticingly Eccentric Gnomes Craft Box Set
Enticingly Eccentric Gnomes Craft Box Set

Edition: Paperback
Price: £15.46

2.0 out of 5 stars Totally agree with the reviews, 20 Feb. 2013
This set simply doesn't do what it says it does. It does not contain everything you need to make the ninja gnome. There is not enough red felt, no white thread, no grey thread, no toy stuffing, not even a needle!

The instructions are also not that clear, and the templates would have been much clearer if they had been spread across two pages rather than squeezed onto one page for each gnome. This makes them quite difficult to trace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh boy! - The waiting is over!, 10 Dec. 2004
Finally, after what seems like an eternity, Quantum Leap arrives on DVD. With the videos withdraw long ago and selected repeats on the Sci-Fi channel the only available ways to watch this classic TV series, fans can now breathe a sign of relief.
As a fan from day one, this really is worth the wait, with all the nine episodes from the very first series and some extras.
The series charts the adventures of genius scientist, Dr Sam Beckett, who invents a time machine, tries it out and finds himself stuck in time. He leaps from life to life, but within his own lifetime, - putting right what once went wrong and hoping that the next leap will be the leap home. However, he's not alone and is helped by his faithful best friend Al, a hologram and womaniser!
The series starts with the two-part pilot episode where the classic Quantum Leap theme tune was still to be developed and ends with Sam Beckett in the bath discovering he is a woman! Sam's encounters with a young Michael Jackson and a young Buddy Holly are also great moments!
The best episode of all though is the critically acclaimed 'The Colour of Truth' which examines racism in the Deep South in the 1960s. It is truly heart-breaking to watch, with Sam, who is always a fighter for equal rights, leaping into the body of an elderly black man and struggling to make those around him understand that racism is unjustifiable.
The only disappointment was the extras which were insightful but a bit thin on the ground. Saying that, it's great to see Quantum Leap out on DVD and I can't wait for the next series!
