NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) Season 3 [DVD]
NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) Season 3 [DVD]
Dvd ~ Mark Harmon
Price: 13.01

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect 'easy watching' series, 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This series grows on you as you progress through the first series. It's not an intellectual script! but well written for an hour long story, with well-played characters that you get to love. It is also full of subtly amusing scenes that make you smile. It's great for evening entertainment when you want to watch something that isn't dull and at the same time nothing too complicated; it gives you something to think about whilst also not too much, for the end of a busy day when you need to unwind. I'm very fussy about my viewing, many TV series don't make it through to the end of the first series even, and wasn't too sure about it for the first few shows: however, it has now got to joint first place for me with 'Without a Trace'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not too unfamiliar in today's world, 28 July 2013

A great book by Trollope that isn't too far away from our current economic world situation. The same lies and corruption, the same human frailties. A great read.

Was a bit sceptical of US TV series but this, I have to admit, is great and very entertaining. I love the characters who are all very believable and I especially love Horatio Cane.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enlightening, 12 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very interesting read giving you a window into an Englishman's view of a number of places, and the way people live and work, around the world in the 19th century. Trollope gives a very candid viewpoint and some moments of recognition of the fact that many of the, negative and positive, characteristics of humanity change little from century to century.

This review is from: Burn Notice - Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Very entertaining and a nice change. Subtle comic moments and light entertainment, for when you want to be entertained but don't want to have to work too hard at keeping up with complicated plots. Some very interesting facts about spies and tricks of the trade performed by a charming young man who plays the part of the impeccably dressed, quick witted and talented spy that we all want to believe is the typical spy out there doing what is right (but probably nothing like the real thing). It's the perfect 'switch off, be entertained and get a nice warm fuzzy feeling about the World' in these difficult times.

I found this over rated; the story has been done so many times - In fact, I was bored from start to finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very well acted and an excellent cast, 1 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Borgias - Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I knew I would enjoy this series because of my love of history, but it was far better than I'd hoped. I think the acting was superb and that each actor/actress was chosen well for the part they played. It was colourful, exciting and ran at a perfect pace. I look forward to a 2nd series
