Waterloo Road Series Seven - Spring Term [DVD]

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally uncut episodes for the first time since Series 4 DVD release., 31 Mar 2012
I felt I must post a quick review to inform buyers that this release contains 10 episodes each roughly 58 minutes in length, the first time we've had uncut full length episodes since the Series 4 DVD release (Series 5, 6, and the Autumn release of Series 7 all had cut episodes shortened to around 49 minutes). It feels great to have the full episodes once again like the older releases (previously and next time segments are still missing, and the usual music edits have been made) but this DVD release of Waterloo Road Series 7 Sprint term is the best release since Series 4 so I fully recommend a purchase. Finally story lines make sense and develop as episodes are uncut and characters like Grantly get full screen time. Great release, though some additional extras would have been appreciated but I'm not going to argue with 10 hours worth of episodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars In response to the poster below, 6 Sep 2010
Ok you have no idea what your talking about. This does have 13 episodes, however episode 12 on this set is made up of episodes 12 and 13 hence why episode 12 on this set is 1 hour 25 minutes long and is shown on the DVD menu as Made In China/ Last Call (Made in China being episode 12 and Last Call being Episode 13). Of course the MINS appear less, this is PAL which runs for less time than the US NTSC format. Please get your facts right before posting a review, a review means you've done all the research necessary before posting.

5.0 out of 5 stars 24 stronger than ever, 12 Feb 2010
This review is from: 24 - Season 8 [DVD] (DVD)
After 9 years on television you'd think 24 would start showing signs of old age, you'd think the show wouldnt look as good as it did during its peak, shouldnt the cast and crew be getting bored, the thing is they're not and thus 24 is just as spectacular as the day it arrived on our screens in 2001.

24 Season 8 (after 8 episodes) is shaping up to be one of the more smarter seasons of 24. This season no longer panders to those Hollywood junkies who watch the show for the action, explosions etc.. Instead Season 8 offers up a treat, an intricate story, beautifully unfolding, beautifully acted and beautifully written. Season 8 is set in NYC, the day starts with President Hassan (middle eastern leader) in the country to sign a peace agreement with President Allison Taylor (Emmy award winning actress Cherry Jones). The agreement is thrown into dispute when it turns out that people want Hassan dead and the season starts to take a very dark turn as Hassan himself later starts getting himself into things he maybe wish he hadnt. Jack and CTU are back for another filled day but dont expect this season to be as action packed as the rest, for the first time in 24 history expect story and character development, this season we're finding out the history of the characters but even better, when those moments of action arrive you enjoy them more, becasue not only do you know the history behind it you've also waited for it. The only issue that may take away from your enjoyment is one particular sideplot that takes place for about 10 episodes, it will be fine on DVD but on TV it dosent play as well as the main story.

Marvel at the beautiful NYC backdrop and the sets (which really are something else this year, the new CTU is an orgasmic set) and expect to be blown away by some suprising performances, lets put it this way Freddie Prinze Jr, has silenced those critics who thought he would be awful.

Season 8 takes 24 back to the days of Seasons 1-3 and you really wont want to miss it. Season 8 is the smartest season of 24 yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful set but disagree with review below, 7 Aug 2009
This really is a beautiful set and any Harry Potter fan should buy this. I would suggest this even if your buying it for your child becasue eventually they will grow up. However the review below says that the Harry Potter series was wrote for children and this may have been the case when JK Rowling started writing the series but it soon becomes clear when you hit the 4th book that as Harry Potter started growing the book was being written for a more mature audience especially as they got to nearlu 800-900 pages in length, thats no childrens book. Many of the fans will have grown up this series and it really was an honour for me to own this set and have the complete set sitting up on my shelf. Great boxset, the books look beautiful (so much you wont even want to touch them) and the book is sturdy and wont get damaged easily.

5.0 out of 5 stars 24 is back.....in Style, 29 Nov 2008
Its been a while since 24 was last on our screens, but finally its back and i'm happy to report its more explosive and action packed as ever. I'm gonna keep this short but sweet, all 24 fans should see this. Its great to finally see Jack out of LA but to see him in Africa is stunning, having Africa as the backdrop makes all the action even more breathetaking. The acting is superb as always and Cherry Jones aka the new female president is wonderful. Theres really a stunning cast here including Robert Carlyle and Jon Voight so they really havent messed around this year on 24, and it shows just how 24s critical acclaim has spread into the celeberity world. The special features with this DVD make the whole thing worth buying, theres a commentary track, a making of Redemption but perhaps what most people will be buying this for is to check out the extended version of Redemption (over 15 minutes put back in to the movie) plus the first 17 minutes of Season 7 episode 1 (which is fantastic) not to mention the season 7 trailer and a montage of scenes from the first 14 episodes of season 7. So all fans should have this sitting produly beside their other DVDs of 24. Can i also just say that SKY1 absolutely ruined this movie with all the breaks every 10 minutes, so to do Redemption justice you really have to watch it the way it was meant to be seen. ON DVD.

Well done yet again Mr Sutherland, My Cassar and the whole team behind
24.

Ps. You should also buy the Redemption soundtrack, Sean Callery does an amazing job in this movie so its worth looking into that. Link Below for those intreasted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 19 July 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Ok heres the truth...

When i bought this i had absolutely no intention of using XBOX LIVE, all i wanted out of this machine was to play Grand Theft Auto 4. So i purchased the arcade version, GTA4, and the XBOX 360 Component cables (so i could play in HD) and i was and still am over the moon. However after a while i wanted to play XBOX LIVE so i went onto ebay, purchased a 20gb hardrive for £16.99 and a headset for £10 which attached to the wireless controller provided in this package and i was away. So if you buy this you will have everything you need to play games right away including Halo 3, GTA4 etc... but if you want to go on XBOX LIVE and download content etc... go on ebay purchase a HDD and a headset and away you go.

£150 = XBOX 360 Arcade

£5.99= HD Conponent cable (only the standard one is provided with this)

£16.99 = 20GB Harddrive from ebay

£10 = Headset for XBOX LIVE

= 182.98 still far cheaper than the premimum and elite version

EXCELLENT, will get everyone off the ground, and if you want more from this package, simply upgrade, no need to go and sell this and buy premiumum packages etc... may i also add, this console comes with HDMI and when attached to HDTV, is simply breathetaking.

1.0 out of 5 stars The downward spiral in one box, 1 July 2008
This show isnt good, the first season was actually amazing and was very close to the standard of some of Americas best dramas including 24, lost etc... then the 2nd season came and it started to slip, the storyline was stretched furthur and furthur and i thought to myself surely this cant go on, but i was infact incorrect as the show was renewed for a 3rd season coupled with the writiers strike making the 3rd season the worst yet, down in the gutter bascially, the show has been stretched to hell that all the crediability it had in the 1st season is now gone, this box represents that downfall, whats worse is the show has just been renewed for a 4th season (although rumoured to be its last) the fans have ruined this show by demanding more. Stick with 24, lost, six feet under, sex and the city, house, but stay clear from this stretched out muck.
