Laramie: Final Season [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Laramie: Final Season [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Dvd ~ TV SERIES

4.0 out of 5 stars A treat for Western fans, 9 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is great to be able to view this iconic series again in the UK albeit on DVDs . It is aired in the States on the Encore Western and Grit channels and although it was rerun here about thirty years ago we have not seen it since. In order to view it though you must have an all regions or region free DVD player.
The quality of the Final Season is acceptable and it must be borne in mind that the films from which it was remastered are more than fifty years old. It is certainly vastly superior in quality to the Third Season which is poor.
For me, personally , the Final Season has some of the best episodes although most of them feature either one or other of the main stars, John Smith and Robert Fuller and the inter-reaction between both men is what sets this tv Western apart from all the others.They most frequently end up in the last scene back at the Sherman Ranch with Daisy ( Spring Byington) and Mike (Dennis Holmes). These final domestic scenes are a real joy and some of them are very funny indeed. Watch the last scene in The Violent Ones : it will more than make you smile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully designed and practical, 28 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a marvellous little product. It's slightly larger than the size of a golf ball and smaller than a tennis ball when closed. The audio jack and connecting wire sits neatly wrapped around the base.A simple twist operation opens it . I bought it to increase the volume on a portable DVD player which was producing a really muted,tinny sound. The difference using the Betron in incredible. It not only increases the volume but improves the sound quality no end. It comes with a USB charging cable (no plug) and instructions all of which fit neatly into the little velveteen pouch supplied. It was purchased for purely practical purposes but it should become a design classic. It's a beautifully designed , tactile little object .

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and unusual, 7 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For pure entertainment,I loved it. I watched the series when it was first broadcast in the UK and enjoyed it then . I wasn't disappointed when I watched it again now twenty years later. Although it contains all the usual elements of a good entertaining Western this one is quite different looking as it does at the opening up of west from a female perspective. It's actually quite thought provoking.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite as good as previous models, 26 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the third Cath Kidston diary I have had . I have only given it three stars because it lacks the little perforated notes section which was so useful for giving people email addresses, diary dates, little reminders etc.
Apart from that it is an ideal diary with the dates on one side of the page and a page for notes on the other.

This guide is great for learning how to use and operate an iPad but also very helpful for reference for the more experienced iPad user.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful and stylish, 26 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very useful for carrying around to charge mobile phones and tablets 'on the go'. It is a stylish tactile object that is small and light enough to go into a handbag, briefcase or key compartment in the car. From my experience it will deliver two full charges before needing recharging itself.

If you want a good quality tracing paper this is it. It has a lovely smooth finish that makes it a pleasure to use and it doesn't slide around whilst you are making your tracings.

This is not the first time I have read this book but it is to the spirit what 'comfort food ' is to the body, a 'go -to' when you want to take a reminder of a more gentle past.
I thoroughly enjoy all Derek Tangye's books and would only wish he were still with us to give us more stories of Minack, his animals and the life he and his wife embraced there.


Bleak House (Everyman's Library Classics)
Bleak House (Everyman's Library Classics)
by Charles Dickens
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £12.08

4.0 out of 5 stars Bleak House, 8 Sept. 2014
This is a very long novel that you need to give yourself time to read. It is ,for me, the best of Dickens books, beautifully crafted, written in a flowing ,easily readable style in the most wonderful descriptive prose with the twists and turns of a really absorbing storyline.
Give yourself time to read it.
