5.0 out of 5 stars is it very good for other things out there now?!!, 10 April 2008
This review is from: Roxy & Elsewhere (Audio CD)
Desert island zappa!-complex (listen -you need to hear his stuff more than once!)but beautifully melodic spoof jazz /blues rock orchestrations,that will have you laughing and "getting your rocks off" at the same time- the spoken "preambles" at the beginning of the musical sequences should give enough clues to non zappa fans as to what he was all about,although musically ,he was about as serious and talented a composer as you could get.This guy never went for the commercial stuff,and is pretty unique to catagorize in any musical genre as he has tried his hand at just about everything-but he was a fun guy and this album is rich with hilarious lyrics and obvious band in jokes as well as some magnificent orchestrations-his stuff will NEVER be done again !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars iknowthat!!!!!!!, 15 Jan 2008
The above review title being a line from one of the most scariest things i have ever seen on tv ,and if fellow thriller fans are reading they will know to what the line refers to (episode title "i,m the girl he wants to kill " for those who don,t know)-this particular episode is only one of many and would be an ideal place to start for guaranteed shocks,but having owned this set for over 2 years i am thinking that each episode stands on its own merit,and you have good plots,mystery ,red herrings and guessing who did it as well as scary moments.Also its a period piece for how 70,s tv drama was made and you have the wonderful studio lighting which only served to add to creepy atmosphere("the colour of blood" shows this to brilliant effect).i wonder however if it holds up to younger viewers today and would be interested in that feedback-however there are enough of us over 35s who still enjoy this (it even has its own website and guest book which never fails to amaze me the love and the trivia that fans show for this 70,s gem)- to sum up i agree with a lot of the posts that say it takes you back to childhood tv shocks whilst watching with the lights down in what will always be tv,s golden age

5.0 out of 5 stars thebestbarnone, 10 Jan 2008
I can divide the human race into 2 camps-those who like or dislike laurel and hardy!!!!-if u dont,go and watch little britain and catherine tate as this type of humour is based on malice and laughing at the unfortunates,which is not a pretty trait is it?-for the rest of us wots not to like ?-these 2 geniuses of script ,phrase and timing paved the way for the rest of screen comedy on both sides of the atlantic.In Helpmates i literally laughed till i cried (and so did my friend who had never seen a l and h short before) ollie- "u never met my wife did u?"-Stan "yes i never did!"- even the supporting cast(james finlayson ,charlie hall("thats the second time today you,ve picked on me!")and the diminutive pocketwife from hell daphne pollard "i,m gonna cook his goose!" are perfect foils for the nonsense,which was based on the twos complete innocent stupidity which they wore like armour-morecambe and wise have tributed some of their act to these 2,but funny as there were M a W rarely came as close to making you laugh continuosly (and after the tv was switched off) than this finest of all comedy teams-if you washed up on a desert island with this box set,and could watch it by magic,u would be too hapless with laughter to get an escape raft sorted for a good while!!!!
