I paid much much less than I expected for this sd card and adaptor. It works perfectly, no problems at all. Data transfer is quick and easy, my PC, laptop, camera and iPad (using my own adaptor) all recognised and accessed the card.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another cracker, 3 May 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hustle series 4 continues the fine tradition of quality, quirky writing and acting that the previous 3 series established. Almost all the episodes are brilliant, my only gripe being the episode dealing with the fashion industry hence 4 stars not 5.

The transition of danny from new boy to "leader" is fun to watch though you know that really this team doesn't need a leader, they're all far too good for that. Whilst all of the cast perform well, for me the main reason to watch Hustle is the superb Robert Vaughn. The part of Albert Stroller is perfect for him. Special mention for the 2 american based episodes (almost ocean's 11 and a half) and the care home episode.

I recommended this series to all who have seen the earlier series and if you haven't, get them as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Horribly addictive, 2 Mar 2008
Oh No, not another cop show...But wait, this "hero" is a killer (Odd) and he's part of the Miami PD (Odder still).
Just when you thought that cop shows had run their course along comes Dexter and it's superb! A seemingly ordinary guy with a taste for awful shirts and a unique passion for blood spatter analysis we learn that Dexter (played by the excellent Michael C Hall) is the sort of chap that your parents would warn you about. He hunts down and dispatches those whom the law can't or won't touch. In flashback we learn of his foster father Harry who was a Miami Copper and realising that his foster kid was either going to end up on Death Row or in an asylum takes his gift along a different route. The rest of the cast are almost perfect in their portrayal of baffled policefolk who can't understand Dexter's gift but, with one exception, do nothing about it.
Humour doesn't get darker than this and may well be the one show where you don't want the bad guy caught. On the other hand is Dexter the "bad guy" or a hero?

Watch it again & again, this show is superb!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you kindly!!!, 19 Nov 2005

IF and that's a big IF the dvd has the pilot movie included then you really should buy this dvd now. DS is without doubt the oddest cop/drama/feelgood show ever and it's brilliant. The characters are stereotyped deliberately (bullish yanks, ultra polite canadians) but there is a humour unfound in any programme before or since. The only one that came near was quantum leap.
Buy it, watch it again & again, it's superb.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not over...just yet, 6 Oct 2005
As a Quo fan for 25+ years, I usually find that there are 2 types of Quo album: the ones that are so catchy and appealling that you play and play them for months and then there's this sort. TPAOY has I'll be honest a mixture of superb singles such as the title track and All that counts is love and then there are the slow movers. The songs that you listen to and think "Well, not bad but I've heard better" but then then you find yourself humming them later on that day such as "The Bubble" and "Nevashooda". Growers with time. Incidentally, the final track "This is me" could almost be Rick Parfitt's autobiography track. Certainly not as good as "Heavy Traffic" but definitely not another "If you can't stand the heat", TPAOY will fill the shelves of all Quo fans and will no doubt be visited more than a few times but it could have been so much more. Looking forward to the tour though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best so far?..., 17 Jun 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
M*A*S*H* series 7continues the proud tradition of the DVD release of this, one of my all-time favourite TV shows. Whilst it's true that the DVD releases feature nothing in the way of extras and the ritual de-selection of the "laugh track" for each episode is a pain, this show doesn't need to tell you about the scenary, director's viewpoint or any of that kind of stuff. This is a classic series featuring many standout episodes. For example "Commander Pierce" shows Hawkeye trying to fill Potter's shoes and realising that command isn't all it's cracked up to be, "None like it hot" showing how much fun you can have with a bathtub whilst trying to keep it a secret. Some episodes don't work however as in BJPapa San which shows early signs of the schmaltzy episodes that came to typify many later US comedy shows.
The best is most definitely kept to last as "The Party" brings home the loneliness felt by those in war no matter when it occurs and BJs attempts to ensure that those the characters love back home at least can enjoy themselves. A truely great episode and "Peace on us" ain't far behind.
Why don't they make shows like this anymore? Simple - they can't take a gamble these days. When everything today depends on ratings, shows like M*A*S*H* which allowed the development of characters are long gone. Preserve these shows, buy this DVD (and the series 1 - 6 before)

5.0 out of 5 stars A quantum leap in TV Sci-Fi?, 29 Nov 2004
An emphatic YES! An absolute delight to see again the first series/season of QL. From the opening of the pilot episode and the introduction of Al and Sam through to the ground breaking episode "The Colour of Truth" and then to Sam's first leap into a woman, this was great stuff. Never afraid to be controversial and yet still with it's own charm, QL was a major step forward in TV Sci-Fi. Still untouched by many other shows in it's writing this series didn't have to rely on FX to be gripping. QL also had some great guest stars especially Claudia Christian of Babylon 5 and Mike Post's theme tune is in my top 5 of all time. If you're a fan, buy it! If not, buy it anyway.
Special features wise, this isn't a treasure trove but the intros to each episode are useful, and the series appears to have been transferred with care to disc (only 1 episode of pixellation over 3 discs ain't bad). Hope that the wait to series/season 2 isn't long.
