5.0 out of 5 stars BEST SEASON OF HOUSE MADE TO DATE, 22 Jun. 2008
I'm a House FANatic, and I'd say this season is the best one made so far. It's a pity the season came out with just 16 episodes, but that was because of the writers' strike. TO my mind, this season is the BEST one to date. I'm glad they broke the original team up: if they'd carried them all through in the same way into the 4th season, i believe it would've got stale... it'd just be more repetitions of past seasons. This season is great, and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a show!, 4 Sept. 2006
This review is from: Alias - Season 4 [DVD] (DVD)
Alias is classic. It's a super-slick, action series with plenty of drama in between between friends, parents and lovers. It's James Bond-style action, Sydney Bristow (the main character) always has the right tools she needs to get out of the often sticky situations she finds herself in. Kevin Weissman, who plays Marshall Flinkman, is absolutely HILARIOUS as the geekish yet brilliantly clever tech guy. IN CONCLUSION: If you ever feel like just vegging out and escaping into a world of espionage, good acting and convincing drama (most of the time, at least...the plot lines can get quite complicated) then buy yourself some ice-cream, dive under a cosy blanket and treat yourself to Alias.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST SO FAR, 5 July 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This season seems to be one of the more controversial Smallville sets judging from the mixed reviews (mostly positive, though). I'm busy watching it (nearly done) and I think it's on equal terms with the brilliance of season 3. Season 4 scratches further than the skin-deep offerings of other seasons. Issues of identity, character, and integrity are explored in what seems to be a less superficial, more believable way - like, for instance, Clark deciding to give up football. The whole Lana/Witch theme is quite fun, even though it a major distraction from the central mythology of the season. What I especially enjoy about this season is that there are less Clark/Lana ending sequences in Clark's barn with sentimental music and Lana telling Clark to be honest with her etc etc etc. That did get i bit tiresome in earlier seasons. My friend think Lana is a cow. She certainly has her issues, but there's definitely something enchanting about her which keeps people coming back. Enjoy the season!!

5.0 out of 5 stars AH!! <sigh of utter satisfaction>, 12 April 2006
In short, this book is astounding. I'm so glad I read it. It is one of the most humerous books I've read. I think "magical realism" is a good term to use to describe this book. That doesn't mean that somehow your "containing" novel within a specific framework and lessening it's broad brushstrokes, but it's an effect which Marquez uses and it's VERY effective! A great read beside a warm fire on a cold night. Trust me - you'll LOVE it!

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY VERY READABLE, 10 April 2006
I'm currently doing a research paper on the Inklings and I found Carpenter's biography extremely useful, easy to read, and exciting. He has an incredible way of taking you back to the past and making it come alive.

5.0 out of 5 stars WHO ARE YOU GOING TO BE?, 9 Aug. 2005
This review is from: The Great Divorce (Paperback)
This book has received rave reviews - and rightly so. Lewis has an knack for providing spiritual truth in an entertaining and thought-provoking way. Perhaps what affected me the most forcefully was the case of the Tragedian who finally gave in to acting and consequently lost his true self. It forces one to think how much activity in one's own life comes from the ACTOR, the great traitor within who wears the proverbial mask, eventually losing who he really is. It reminds the reader that personality is a gift from God - that is the journey of faith - recovering the true self, walking in it, and then becoming effective in the faith. REALLY inspiring stuff! I so often wanted to scream at the Ghosts for choosing spearation and isolation in favour of all joy in God - but then I realised how many of my own choices follow suit. Get it, Read it carefully, think about it.
