Body of Proof - Season 3 [DVD]

4.0 out of 5 stars Great show that was sadly canceleld, 5 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a great show with interesting characters. Why on earth they cancelled it after just three seasons I do'nt know. The studios shouldn't base their cancellations only on viewer stast in the US, but the worldwide market. They continue crap like Two and Half Men year after year and good shows get canceled for lack of US viewers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the best show ever, 5 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
THE best series ever made about Vietnam. I was a huge fan when it was on tv, re-watched my videos for years till they were worn out, then bought the DVDs in the US when they came out years back - only to find it didn't countain the original music. I was so happy when the new DVS came out with the original songs. It's simply the best show ever and I probably watched every episode at least 50 times over the years ( ... the show's from the late 80's ) A must-buy !!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Boooring, 5 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Deadly boring. The descirption is misleading. Yes- it says Shakespeare, but I thought the story was just based on his plays, but the language would be modern english. Especially for non-native english speakers this is difficult to follow and I barely made it through the first half hour because I was bored to death. I love historical drama, but made in an understandable english for the whole world to enjoy. ( For non-native english speakers, Shakespeare is something your read and interpret in school and something you want to be rid off therefore for good ...)

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome show, great potential wasted again..., 30 Jun 2014
Finally... Michael Chiklis is back and as a brilliant bad boy character. The show had so much potential.... why do they cancel it after one season ???? At least they were kind enough to give it a bit of an ending in the last episode and they don't blow you off with a cliffhanger that will never be finished....

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply amazing, 22 May 2014
The first season was great... and the second one even tops it off. It's absolutely brilliant - and really scary when you think that politics in Washington works exactly as they show it.... Can't wait for season three to see if he even makes it to become president

5.0 out of 5 stars True Detective.... True HBO.... TRUE BRILLIANCE !!!, 22 May 2014
It's HBO.... that already says pretty much everything , cause is there ever anything from HBO not up to perfection ? This is not your average boring cop show, but i's a brillant story spanning over almost 20 years. The fact that Oscar winners and top actors like Harrelson and McConaughey do a TV series is also proof that this show is exceptional ( mind you I was never a big fan of McConaughey and the pretty-boy roles he played.... He's simply amazing in this role and sure hs the guts to be ugly... ) The beautiful Louisiana landscape is another plus.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true big finale worthy of its name, 14 Jan 2014
I loved Burn Notice from beginning to end and I watched the entire Season 7 in one day that's how gripping the story was. The action is as good as ever and the end is a finale that the fans love because it's a good ending ( not like the end of Dexter which was very disappointing in my mind....). When you've been living with a great show for so many years, it's like they become part of your family and you want a happy ending for the characters. Burn Notice delivers....

5.0 out of 5 stars On of THE best shows in years, 27 Dec 2013
This review is from: Revenge - Season 1-2 [DVD] (DVD)
I'm a real tv series buff and it's hard to impress me. This show is definately one of the best in years. Just when you think you know what's going on - bam !! here comes the next surprise. The writing and the story is excellent. The cast is wonderful and they managed to find actors where you can feel for the characters and very quickly get attached to them ( in compariosn I've watched 7 seasons of CSI NY now and I couldn't care less if one of the main characters died... they never once managed to get a connection with the audience). The idea of showing the season ending in the beginning of the first episode and then you think you know what's gonna happen but you really don't is a brilliant one never seen before. I just can't wait for season three especially to see what happens to one of my favorites Nolan Ross... If you love suspense, thrill, character-driven shows then this is a must buy !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting better and better every year !!, 5 Jun 2013
... this is one of the few shows on tv that actually gets better and better with every season !! I watched the entire season in one Saturday - cause once you're in the story there's no way you can turn it off and keep watching it another day !! It's totally addictive . Without revealing anything, some people finally get what they deserve this season, and boy did they have it coming.... Can't wait for season 6 ( even though the cliffhanger in the last episode is less dramatic than last year and was pretty much foreseeable )

3.0 out of 5 stars A very disappointg Season 5, 27 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
.... the three stars I only give because I used to love the show and like the actors. ( they're still doing a great job, not their fault the writers came up with such crappy stories this season...) I used to be a huge fan of True Blood and watched each episode of the previous seasons with lot's of excitement, so I looked forward to season 5 as well. Big disappointment !!! Except the last two episodes there really isn't much going on and the stories just blabber on and on. It even gets boring to watch at times, which I never thought I would say about True Blood. I watched the entire season 5 DVDs in one day and through most of the seasons you're weren't captivated at all as in the past seasons. Even my beloved Eric Northman, my favorite character, couldn't catch me this time till the end of the season. The side stories with the shifters, werewolves and the irak story line take up a lot of time and are rather unimportant and boring if you ask me. I truly hope season 6 will go back to its original thrill or else they've lost me as a fan.... Plus what is also disappointing is that there are really not extras or bonuses to speak of on the DVD ( unless you count the tiny 3 minutes "inside the episodes" features... no other documentaries, interviews or behind the scenes infos on this seasons DVDs...)
