5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant nail biting series, 22 Aug 2014
Brilliant nail biting series. Be warned, you'll want to watch the episodes back to back ...addictive viewing. James Purefoy is delectably devious and alluring as the manipulative serial killer and cult leader, Joe Carroll. Kevin Bacon is fantastic and utterly convincing as the relentless and courageous criminologist, battling his way through every twisted challenge in his pursuit of Joe until the season's dynamite finale.

This series redefines the term 'suspense thriller'. This is the new 'Hitchcock' for the 21st Century!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A cross between the X-files, Fringe and Supernatural, each episode focuses on the identification and effective collection of artifacts possessing unique powers, as root causes underpinning unusual events. Lacking in the detail of how each artifact came to be, and alluding to the existence of a malevolent rival collector, the watcher is left feeling a little disappointed and short changed by the lost potential of each under-worked story line and over worked, predictable main character relationships.

That said, the special effects were quite entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars An education in the value of true friendship, 22 Aug 2014
Top quality item that arrived very quickly. Film was very good with five star performances from Matt Damon and the late Robin Williams. Dialogue in German or English with German subtitles.

A poignant film about the deep bond of mutual understanding and friendship that develops between the turbulent, tormented and gifted Will and his initially and reluctant psychologist. Discovering that they share a common past as victims of violence and abuse, Will (Matt Damon) and Sean (Robin Williams) become unlikely allies in their mutual battle to overcome their inner insecurities and fears for the future and the unknown. Initially at odds, Will learns from Sean how the relationships we form in life, will not always end painfully or be regrettable, but often help to define us and make us greater than ourselves. In so doing, Sean learns from Will, to practice what he preaches in respect of his own personal grief and reluctance to move on with his life.

Together they gain the courage they each initially lack, to break out of their respective comfort zones of anonymity, self obsession and self pity, to reach out to and learn to love and trust others.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Philanthropist, 21 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This series looks at a number of contentious political situations around the world and through the character of Teddy Rist, the viewer is shown how everything can be negotiated, if the level of power, influence or money exerted has been assessed correctly.

'Money talks' is the initial feel for this action packed political drama but, as Teddy's experiences in these real world situations awaken his sense of morality and release his deeply buried guilt and grief for the loss of his young son and the subsequent breakdown of his marriage, the once selfish, and unsubtle businessman emerges from his money orientated cocoon and is transformed into a vulnerable, selfless and admirable humanitarian.

Politicians take note!
