5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious, 27 Dec 2005
This DVD simply shows the highlights of the BBC comedy quiz show They Think It's All Over, and it certasinly doesn't disappoint. While the actual quiz part of the show is pretty poor to say the least, the comedy value is immense. Some of the jokes are in bad taste, but they are absolutely hilarious. You could watch this DVD over and over again and still find it funny.
Definitely worth buying. Over an hour and a half of pure comedy. 10/10.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious, but more action needed, 27 Dec 2005
This title is excellent and is well worth buying. The own goals, misses, punch-ups are all outrageous and if you are a footy fan they will have you in fits of laughter.
I think Rory McGrath is a good narrator, not such a good actor, but I found the scenes that he did were great. It's a matter of opinion I suppose.
The one bad point about the DVD is that it could do with more action. But still, well worth buying.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great action, but nowhere near enough detail, 25 Dec 2005
This review is from: Btcc Review: 2005 [DVD] (DVD)
This DVD shows the action well, but it's simply ITV's coverage taken and plonked onto a DVD. The action is great, but there is nothing new about what we see. Each race is covered sufficiently though, although sometimes you notice a driver jumping several places when it appears they have not overtaken anyone!
Sadly, there is no mention of the pitlane gossip and banter between the main drivers in the series: Yvan Muller, Jason Plato and Matt Neal.
I enjoyed watching the DVD and think it's value for money, but the DVD could be so much better of more effort was put into it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great season, great review, 25 Dec 2005
This review is from: Formula 1 Review: 2005 [DVD] (DVD)
I thoroughly enjoyed recalling the great F1 season we have just watched with the help of this DVD. It includes the main parts of each race that are essential to piece together the way each race went, and the latest news is well integrated into the season. I also liked the way it dealt with the farce that was Indianapolis 2005 responsibly, just describing the events rather than using it as an opportunity to air the views that the producers had on the event. At over 3 hours long, this is a lengthy but enjoyable way to reflect on the start of a new era.
Why not 5 stars? It says on each race menu 'On Pole', which should show the pole lap. However, only several times does the pole driver describe his lap. More often than not, a different driver (eg. Scott Speed at Indy and Vitantonio Liuzzi at Monza) describes their lap. That's not what I wanted! Some of the pole position laps this season were simply stunning, but instead we listen to an average driver harping on about their own lap, which is from practice and nothing special! A small glitch in what is a good DVD. Ben Edwards is a great narrator. If only he commentated on F1 for ITV!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as funny, 25 Dec 2005
I enjoyed the second series as I watched it before the first series, but after watching the first series and being in fits of laughter most of the time, I because disappointed with this offering. The scenes have changed from being witty and hilarious to sometimes funny but disgusting. Some of the disgusting additions are great, but wear off when they are repeated every episode (ie. Harvey and his 'bitty'). As always, the Sebastian Love and Marjorie Dawes sketches were great, but some of the new additions I just found tedious and painful to watch. And unfortunately, the third series has been a disappointment.
If you have the choice between this or the first series, go for the first series every time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing game, 7 Dec 2005
To those who are complaining that Pro Evo 5 has taken a step backwards, I suggest they think again. It is miles better than PES4 and definitely the footy game to buy.
If you are drawing all the games 0-0, try harder. I had a similar problem, but it was down to my playing style. You have to adapt it to succeed. Unlike on FIFA games where you win every game easily even on the highest difficulty.
The constant fouling does get annoying, but you only have yourself to blame. Instead of flying into tackles, wait until you can realistically get the ball. That solves the problem.
I think that not enough has been done to improve the Master League, as after several seasons it gets boring winning the league over and over again, but the realism on the pitch is superb, much better than PES4, and more than makes up for my select criticisms. Shooting is harder, which is a good thing, and it is more of an achievement to score great goals, especially when playing on 4 or 5 stars.
10/10, I'm addicted to the game. And still unbeaten after 3 Master League seasons!

5.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining game, 4 April 2005
This review is from: FlatOut (PS2) (Video Game)
This is an excellent game, with a similar style and storyline to Burnout 3. Great entertainment.

3.0 out of 5 stars More action required, 24 Mar 2005
I thoroughly enjoyed watching this video. The tragic events at Imola were dealt with in a very appropriate way which made you genuinely feel the tragedy that was inflicted on that terrible day. I find it disturbing that someone would want to watch those fatal crashes, though.
The video created the tension experienced throughout the season very well, and it was good to be told about free practice and qualifying, which has been lacking from some of the recent videos (eg. Formula One 2003). However, I was a bit disappointed that in quite a few races, including Brazil, Aida, Spain to name a few, there was an obvious lack of footage. I was amazed when in Spain the narrator said '25 laps later'. Surely something even slightly significant must have happened then. Also in Aida when Hill passed 5 or 6 cars in 10 laps or so, why not show the overtaking manoeuvres? This took the edge off what could have been an excellent video. However, this wasn't always the case. In some of the later races, there was sufficient detail, but the race sections appeared to be rushed.
So overall, this is a good video if you enjoy hearing qualifying details and banter in the paddock, but more action is required, as this is what the majority of F1 fans such as myself tune in for.
