5.0 out of 5 stars Leaving detective Bosch as an orphan pilot would be a crime, 2 Mar 2014
He looks greyer than I thought, and swears too much, but this representation of Bosch is excellent. I guess we should expect integrity in the adaptation from the novels, given the involvement of Michael Connelly.

I instantly looked for more on completion of the first episode, which has just left me hanging... help!

5.0 out of 5 stars mouse fine, service superlative, 5 Feb 2012
The mouse is cute and works well, was appreciated by the recipient. I appreciated that when I let the sellers know that it had not turned up, they were fabulous and just sent another straight away with no quibble.

4.0 out of 5 stars Witty, clever and musical too, 31 Oct 2010
The girls have been around for long enough to be an institution (sorry Dilly and Adele) and have been strengthened by their fresh blood, the glamorous Liza. The reason for their durable appeal is their sharply observed humour, with a musical counterpoint such that the most wicked or sordid lyrics will be matched with the most angelic facial expresions and sweetest music. For those who remember Tom Lehrer, this was one of his hallmarks.
The Cheap Flights track has become a YouTube legend, with its parody of a trip that has to be Ryanair and Stansted even though the airline is not specifically named, presumably to avoid court!
Dogging has nothing to do with pets, and the consequences of the police appearance are perhaps unexpected.
Myriad subjects engage the girls, from the esoteric workings of financial markets to the ridiculous impact of Health& Safety mantras on normal life.
In the same way that any comedy sketch show can have some things that hit your funny bone and leave you limp with laughter, yet other sketches are merely ok; there are bound to be some tracks that appeal less than others. Nonetheless, the standard overall is high, both in writing and performance, and the best is sublime.
Overall, if you do not see this DVD, you have missed a chance to enhance your life. It is something you really should do before you die!

5.0 out of 5 stars lucky find, 12 Feb 2010
This review is from: The Graduate (Audio CD)
I saw an advert for Nerina's gig in Salford and checked her out on YouTube. I was pleasantly surprised, but the album has grown on me far beyond my initial favourable impression. My daughter's were sceptical (indeed scathing) at first, but now have selected tracks for their phones! My neighbour has ordered her own copy...

4.0 out of 5 stars successful secret santa, 10 Jan 2010
Recipient wet herself laughing as this was wrapped up in the box where she had just discovered 52 Weeks Of Romance and this seemed to be an apt follow-up. Cheap, very cheerful and rather witty, if tasteless. Even enjoyed the pun about the author's name.
